Registering a used car - documents that must be presented

Registering a used car - documents that must be presented
News

There are a number of questions that buyers will have when buying a used car from a private seller, for example, where can I find a sales contract? What is the procedure for formalising the purchase? What documents are required?

According to current European law, a road vehicle must be registered in the car owner's or keeper's country of residence. In Luxembourg, Article 92 of the Highway Code specifies this requirement in a basic general rule requiring that "every road vehicle put into circulation on public roads is subject to the obligation to be registered and to be covered by a registration certificate" (except certain categories of vehicles).

The forms are available on the SNCA website, www.snca.lu, under "Vehicles". The sales contract and the Chancery stamp are available at the ACL. The ACL teams advise members to guide them through the various administrative procedures (by telephone +352 450045-1 or by email at acl@acl.lu).
