The Vehicle Registration Process In Israel

Registering an imported vehicle in another country can be a bit daunting because not only does each country have different rules and regulations, but it’s also difficult to find accurate information about specific countries. Luckily, Israel is one of the countries that has ample information available when it comes to importing and registering a vehicle from the U.S. On this page, we’ll review the basics of that information and offer some helpful resources for anyone considering shipping a vehicle to the country.

When importing a vehicle into Israel, there are some restrictions on the type of vehicle, as well as how old it is. Under most circumstances, vehicles that are more than two years old cannot be imported, which obviously puts some limits on used cars and trucks. If, however, you moving to Israel on a permanent basis, the age restriction does not apply. (It should be noted that the other requirements mentioned do still apply to those immigrating to Israel.)

Import Taxes & Duties

Taxes are very high for vehicle imports in Israel. Not only is there a 50% tax on the car itself, but there’s a 17% value added tax as well. Both are based on the value of the vehicle, which can easily cost more than shipping.

If you have questions or need more information about the process of shipping a vehicle to Israel, you can find more information on our overseas shipping page for the country. Included topics are the required documents, shipping options, and how to prepare your vehicle for international transport.

Required Documents & Roadworthiness Test In Israel

Roadworthiness Inspection

The roadworthiness test is done when you initially register your vehicle, and will also need to be conducted every year thereafter. If the vehicle is brand new, you don’t have to have the inspection done on initial registration, but will have to in the years after.

For vehicles that are more than 15 years old, the brakes must be checked at a certified local mechanic before the roadworthiness inspection. Classic cars and collector vehicles must undergo the inspection twice per year in order to maintain current registration.

Required Documents

In order to import a vehicle into Israel and get it registered, there are a few documents you’ll need to make sure you have. That includes all of the following:

  • License
  • Passport & visa
  • Registration & insurance
  • Teudat Oleh
  • Bill of lading
