Poland Vehicle Registration Process
🇵🇱 Poland, (PL)

Understanding The Vehicle Registration Process | Poland

Registering an imported vehicle in Poland is pretty straightforward, as it is with most countries in the E.U. Though they are differences between how some European countries handle vehicle registration, the process and requirements are more or less harmonized in member countries.

The taxes paid on an imported vehicle in Poland are also in line with European norms. There is a 10% tax on cars, 22% tax on trucks and an additional value added tax of 23% on used vehicles. It’s easy to see how this can quickly add up to a significant cost, especially for higher value vehicles since the VAT is based on its value.

Required Vehicle Registration Documents

The documents needed for registering a vehicle in Poland are pretty much in line with other European countries. They include the following:

  • Proof of ownership
  • EC Certificate of conformity
  • Registration
  • Customs clearance paperwork
  • Roadworthiness certificate (see below section for more info)
  • Proof of excise payment

It should be noted that there are some other requirements for other types of vehicles such as larger passenger vehicles and ATVs. An additional fee, either an excise duty or a recycling fee, is applied in these cases.

Poland Vehicle Registration Resources & The Roadworthiness Inspection

Import taxes for vehicles shipped to Poland will vary depending on the type, size, and age of the vehicle. They generally match up with other countries in the EU, with an import tax ranging from 8% to 12% and a value-added tax (VAT) of 20-25%.

Roadworthiness Inspection

Before a vehicle can be registered in Poland, it must undergo a roadworthiness test. Vehicles that have been issued an EC certificate of conformity may be exempt from the initial inspection. The common aspects of the vehicle that will be inspected during the roadworthiness test include the following:

  • Tires & brakes
  • Lights & signals
  • Chassis & suspension
  • Exhaust & emissions

Driving In Poland

In busier parts of Poland, drivers can be on the aggressive side and it may be somewhat surprising if your only experience is driving on American roads. Caution should be exercised at all times, especially if you’re not an experienced drive in the area. Some rules of the road are not as closely followed as they would be in the U.S.

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!
