Poland Vehicle Registration Process

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.

Understanding The Vehicle Registration Process

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.

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.
