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.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my 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.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to 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!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

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.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
