Management of temporary registrations

(Gestion des immatriculations temporaires - GIT)

Luxembourg's Highway Code provides for the possibility of issuing a temporary registration certificate which expires after five working days.

The certificate entitles the holder of a personalised registration number wishing to register a vehicle in his/her own name under this number to continue driving temporarily (for a maximum of five full working days) with an old vehicle registered under the same personalised number, for which the registration card, or parts I and II of the registration certificate, have been handed over to either the SNCA or a garage recognised by the SNCA for the purpose, with a view to its being deregistered.

Access to the GIT service is restricted to legal persons (companies and businesses) meeting the following criteria:

  • they must be established in a member State of the European Union;
  • they must hold, in that State, an authorisation to trade in road vehicles;
  • they must be listed in the Register of Commerce in that State;
  • they must be identifiable by means of a (Community) VAT number.

The SNCA may demand proof in the form of a certificate issued by a competent authority (ministry, court, register of commerce, etc.).
