Registration of a new vehicle, previously not registered or previously registered abroad in Latvia

The vehicle shall be registered with the person indicated as the owner in the property rights document. Information on the documents to be submitted for registration can be found here: Necessary documents

If the vehicle is not intended to be registered permanently in Latvia, it can be registered in Latvia for the period for which the vehicle has been brought into Latvia, but not longer than three years. Vehicles owned by a foreign person, which registration in Latvia is permitted, are registered temporarily.   More information about vehicle registration in Latvia temporarily here: Temporary vehicle registration

Further alienation of a vehicle imported from a foreign country is allowed only after its registration in Latvia.

Within two months of the permanent registration of a vehicle previous ly registered in a Member State of the European Union, the CSDD sends information on the re-registration of the vehicle to the country of previous registration.
