Applying for re-registration of a vehicle to the same owner

If you want to use your deregistered vehicle on the road again, you must first re-register it.

This is a re-registration to the same owner if you are the person who was previously registered as the owner of the vehicle. If there has been a change of keeper, this is referred to as a re-registration to a different keeper.

You can re-register cars, motorbikes and trailers. You can submit the application in person orthrough a representative to the registration authority responsible for you. Alternatively, you can apply for re-registration digitally via the i-Kfz portal.
