Terminating a vehicle registration

In a number of situations you can terminate the vehicle registration. Are you going to use your car for autocross or for education, for example? Then you can terminate the registration of that vehicle in our vehicle register. In that case, you do not have to pay motor vehicle tax, you do not need insurance and you do not need to comply with the APK obligation (PTI).
