Buying and registering a car in Germany


You just arrived to Germany and are looking for a new car. If you want to buy a brand new one, the best option is to visit official car dealerships (VW, Mercedes-Benz, BMW...). If you want, however, to buy a second-hand car, you have three options:

  • Car dealerships
  • Private sellers
  • Online dealers

If you decide to buy a car, new or used (using any option), always visit the seller and check the car before paying!
