What is a full expert opinion about?

Around 460,000 appraisals are prepared in Germany every year. In everyday life, the engineering hubs usually test vehicle modifications. This is because every vehicle in Germany requires a legal permit both for commissioning and for admission to public road traffic.

This is also known as an operating license and confirms that a vehicle or individual vehicle parts comply with the regulations. To check this, your car must be inspected – either for a full report in accordance with § 21 StVZO or for an individual approval in accordance with § 19 (2) StVZO.

In the following article, you can find out what these inspections and tests usually involve, why and by whom they can be carried out.

Frequently asked questions about the full report according to §21 StVZO

The full inspection is a comprehensive examination of your vehicle to ensure that it meets the legal requirements and can be driven safely on German roads. It is usually carried out on older vehicles or when the vehicle has been involved in an accident and extensive repairs are required.

The full appraisal in accordance with Section 21 of the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations is prepared by officially recognized motor vehicle experts. This involves checking the technical condition of your vehicle and whether it meets the technical requirements, registration regulations and the necessary operational safety and roadworthiness.

A full report is mandatory for all vehicles that have been taken out of service for more than 7 years and for which neither a data confirmation or a certificate of individual approval nor an EC certificate of conformity can be presented at the time of re-registration.

Other possible reasons for a full appraisal if your vehicle

  • does not belong to an approved type,

  • was manufactured in-house, produced in a small series or imported from abroad without EC type-approval,

  • does not have a valid registration certificate Part II, type approval and Certificate of Conformity (COC),

  • has undergone significant structural changes.

Cars imported into Germany from abroad require a full certificate in accordance with § 21 StVZO. This does not apply to new and used vehicles with an EEC type approval and an EC declaration of conformity.

Full approval, on the other hand, is always required for imported vehicles from non-EC countries such as the USA or Canada.

In some cases, the cost of adapting a vehicle to the EC directives or the registration regulations of the StVZO may simply be too high. In such cases, the licensing authority may grant an exemption.

In addition to imported vehicles, most classic or vintage cars require full approval in accordance with § 21 StVZO before they can be re-registered. These appraisals are carried out by motor vehicle experts who also have extensive know-how in this field and are therefore classic car experts.

For a vehicle to be classified as a classic car or even as a cultural asset and receive an H license plate, a classic car certificate in accordance with Section 23 StVZO is required. The associated examinations often include a detailed full inspection.

A vehicle expert checks both the technical condition and road safety of your vehicle during a full vehicle inspection. All components and systems that are important for road safety are checked.

We also check whether the condition of your vehicle complies with the registration regulations regarding exhaust emissions, noise limits, etc. The standard values are always the regulations that were valid at the time of initial registration. The expert also determines whether vehicle parts such as the headlights, reflectors or the type plate need to be retrofitted.

In terms of scope and time expenditure, these examinations correspond approximately to the peridic technical inspection (PTI). An emissions test (AU) is also due for used cars.

During the full inspection, the data for issuing the registration certificate Part I(vehicle registration certificate) and Part II (vehicle registration document) are recorded and compiled. If vehicle registration details are not available or cannot be found, they are determined by measurements.

For the expert opinion, the technical data sheet, the vehicle documents and the foreign documents of imported vehicles must also be submitted to the expert.

Once your vehicle has been successfully inspected, you will be issued an operating license by the local authority responsible. The full certificate in accordance with § 21 StVZO is then valid for two years for your vehicle, as is the PTI.

The prices for full appraisals are very individual, and you should ask your registration office for the exact fee. As a rule, the costs for one exemption are 50 euros and 150 euros for more than three exemptions.

Exemption permits for an imported vehicle can cost between 10 and 500 euros. Around six to ten exceptions are usually necessary, but the authorities often remain moderate in their pricing.

The fees for an individual approval can also vary depending on the type of vehicle and the tests to be carried out. However, you can expect a price of around 160 euros .

  1. § Section 21 StVZO regulates the type approval for individual vehicles.

  2. It is mandatory for vehicles that have been out of service for more than 7 years if the following documents are not available: the data confirmation, the certificate of individual approval and the EC certificate of conformity.

  3. It is required for imported vehicles – except for new or used vehicles with EEC type approval or EC declaration of conformity.

  4. It is mandatory for vehicles from non-EC countries (e.g. USA or Canada), but exemptions are possible.

  5. Used vehicles always require an emission test.

  6. During a full inspection, the vehicle is checked for compliance with the registration regulations. This includes the exhaust behavior, noise limits, braking system, etc.

Motor vehicle experts are responsible for individual and full inspections. Both the full report in accordance with § 21 StVZO and the Individual approval in accordance with § 19 (2) StVZO may only be issued by officially recognized experts from a technical inspection body.

This is because the test personnel must have acquired the appropriate authorizations to be able to carry out full assessments and individual approvals. The inspections can be carried out by all qualified testing organizations since 15 February 2019. For some years now, you are no longer obliged to have your full or individual inspection carried out by DEKRA, for example. 

As a certified KÜS engineering hub, you can now also have your individual and full approval carried out by us. We are at your side with our experts, who have extensive know-how and many years of experience with vehicle appraisals of all kinds.
