Transfer permits can be granted for the temporary transfer or use of a vehicle. A transfer permit is a permit that includes transfer marks affixed to the vehicle and motor insurance.
A transfer permit can be issued for a vehicle that has not undergone a first-time registration, a decommissioned vehicle or a vehicle that has been removed from the vehicle register prior to 2 November 2007. A vehicle banned from use or traffic can be granted a transfer permit in order to take it for repair or inspection. The transfer permit can be acquired no sooner than seven days before the permit becomes valid. The serial number of the vehicle must be presented together with the application.
The permit does not come into force unless the vehicle is covered with continuous motor liability insurance or transfer insurance, and the statutory vehicle tax has been paid. Taking into account the purpose of the transfer permit, the vehicle must be suitable for traffic and its structure, equipment, condition and other features deemed safe.
The permit must be kept with the vehicle whenever it is used in traffic.
