Gearing up - paring down
#1
We are living in Germany and of course have been doing trips. Our cars are regisered in Germany through our work arrangement.

One of the things we have a plan for is what happens if my work contract ends. We will need to get normal German registrations. Did some research and found this:

It IS possible to get up to 365 days of plates and insurance. One can follow the steps, or pay a company to do it for you. The companies charge a lot.

Keep in mind this does not ensure tourist aspects of Schengen are met. This just makes your vehicle legal. How you plan trip from there in Schengen vs. non-Schengen is also key.

Just a quick note.

Followed these directions and got export plates today.

I can attest it does work!
