Motor vehicles and their trailers require a license to participate in public road traffic.

The approval (allocation of an official registration number and issuing of the approval documents) is carried out in Hamburg by the Landesbetrieb Verkehr.

The vehicle was previously registered in Hamburg and should now be registered again for the same owner (if the owner changes, see vehicle registration).

The vehicle was found again after a theft.

An appointment is required for the registration of vehicles.
If the keeper and owner of the vehicle are not identical (as is the case with leasing vehicles, for example), the LBV must be informed of whom the vehicle is to be registered for.
