Estonia Vehicle Registration Process | A-1 Auto Transport

Vehicles shipped to Estonia can be registered at any Estonian Road Administration bureau (see link at the bottom of this page). The Estonian Road Administration differentiates between new and used vehicles, but the procedure of registration is more or less the same and requires the following documents.

Vehicle Registration Process & Required Documents

  • Roadworthiness test
  • Application form
  • Proof of ownership
  • Certificate of conformity
  • Customs documentation

Estonian Taxes On Imported Vehicles

There is not much an import tax on vehicle shipped to Estonia, provided the vehicle is registered within the first five days of your arrival and you gain residency status within the first 12 months. Generally speaking the registration process is a little easier for cars that are more common, whereas it may take a little longer with less popular models or classic vehicles.

Roadworthiness Test | Registering A Vehicle In Estonia

The roadworthiness test is one of the biggest obstacles for people shipping a vehicle to Estonia. The reason being that it’s not a typical requirement in the U.S. and tends to fall more in line with a mechanical inspection. For newly registered vehicles, the roadworthiness inspection will be done on initial registration, four years from that date, and every two years thereafter.

Estonian Roadworthiness Test

Every vehicle must have an EU roadworthiness certificate, which means for most people shipping a car to Estonia, they will have to have the following checked on their vehicle:

  • Windshield wiper and windshield
  • Lights, including headlamps, brakes, turn signals and hazard lights
  • Tires
  • Mirrors
  • Seat belts
  • Steering column & wheel
  • Brakes & suspension
  • Emission inspection

For more information about the vehicle inspection and roadworthiness test, see the link below for the European Commission.
