Vehicle registry
U.S. Army Europe Registrar of Motor Vehicles recently announced changes to the vehicle registration process in Germany. Effective Jan. 11, there is no longer a requirement to annually register vehicles more than 10 years old. Now all vehicles can be registered for two years. “We updated the regulation to become more compliant with the German traffic laws,” said Shawn Driscoll, deputy registrar. “This affects all members of the U.S. military, civilians and Family members assigned to Germany.”
