Down-rating trucks in Germany

Postby mark333 » Mon May 20, 2019 8:47 am

Hi

I'm interested in the procedure to down-rate a truck in Germany before getting a set of transit plates to export that vehicle from Germany.

I'm interested in down-rating a 9T vehicle to 7.5T.

Does anyone know how to do this, or have a URL to a German page please?

Thanks!

I am pretty sure that the TUV man can do everything.

We took ours to the TUV and it was 're classified originally as a chassis cab and down plated at the same time.

It was later 're presented to the TUV when we changed the wheel sizes and it was approved and the documents amended.

Then finally when completed it was 're presented to the TUV and he reclassified it as a Motor caravan for export.

This was however nearly 7 years ago so this info might not be current.

I was impressed that the TUV can record modifications and changes there and then and print you a new registration document.

However, the TUV system appears to be localised and I do remember that I had to register the vehicle (again at the TUV ) to a German resident in that region.

Start with the TUV guy I think they can do all of this ok
