Luxembourg Vehicle Registration: Process & What To Know

It’s easy to pass through Luxembourg and not know it. With a population of just over 500,000, the country’s roads are well maintained.

If you’re thinking of moving there and bringing a special car with you to commute or for recreation, here’s a rundown of what you need to know to register a vehicle there. The process is straightforward and so long as you can navigate the paperwork, you’ll be good to go.

You do get a grace period of six months before you need to register a vehicle in Luxembourg. The process is a bit tricky, depending on where your car is coming from.

Vehicles registered in other European Union countries

As a member of the European Union, the process is a little more streamlined. Clearing customs is not a huge issue for vehicles here.

Here are some broad rules:

  • Got a new car that you’re importing? Or one with 6,000 km or less on it? You’ll likely have to pay a 17 percent vehicle assessment tax. Vehicles that have been on the road for more than six months with more than 6,000 miles clocked in don’t have to pay that tax.
  • If you’re a student from another country, you do not need to register a vehicle for the time of your studies. Being a student also exempts you from buying local insurance or paying the fees in the country. It’s good to be a student.
  • If you work as a student, forget the student rules and go back to the original registration rules.

Vehicle Inspection & Insurance

Inspection, Insurance & Non-EU Vehicles In Luxembourg

Vehicles Registered Outside the European Union

This is where the process is made more complex. Vehicles coming from outside the union must clear customs, either with another E.U. country or with Luxembourg officials.

Duties on the vehicle can be up to 10 percent of the purchase value. You might also have to pay a 17 percent vehicle assessment tax on top of that.

But there are loopholes and exceptions for vehicles imported through relocation.

Vehicle Inspection & Insurance

You’ll have to get insurance for your vehicle as that’s mandatory here. You might also have to modify your car to adhere to specific environmental and road requirements of the union and the country.

The minimum age for a license is 18 years.


You can expect well-maintained roads with clear signs. Though it’s important to note most of the signs are in French. That includes much of the digital alert systems in the country. But with the modern roads come modern problems, with heavy traffic congestion in the mornings and evenings.

Be mindful of the terrain as there are some steep hills where priority is given to cars going up the hill.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
