When you register the car in your name you need an insurance number. You can change the plates at the same time.

You also need to have a German bank account from which tax can be paid by debit order. And proof of where you´re registered as a resident. Not even a German passport would be good enough as it doesn´t show that. You can get a "Meldebestätigung" (certificate of registration) from your municipality.

Hi,

you need an insurance before registering the car. Which number do you wanna change? The one from the plate? It's posible after the registration.
