The USAG-Stuttgart Vehicle Registration office is managed by the Directorate of Emergency Services. Department of Defense ID cardholders in Germany (service members, family members, and assigned civilians and some contractors) are required to register their personally-owned vehicles (POV) with the U.S. Military (USAREUR). Registered vehicles are not subject to German taxes or German vehicle registration.
All shipped vehicles and used vehicles purchased in Germany must pass a safety inspection before they can be registered.
Personnel leaving (ETS or PCS) or individuals who have lost logistical support must turn in their Stuttgart (S), Boeblingen (BB) plates to vehicle registration (not MP Station) prior to leaving the Stuttgart community.
