Important changes for car owners

On January 1 of this year, regulations on vehicle registration rules changed. Here’s what you need to know:

– the previous obligation to notify of the acquisition of a vehicle, has been replaced by an obligation to register it,

– an application for vehicle registration must be filed within 30 days of acquiring the vehicle, admitting it to the market or bringing it to Poland,

– a longer (90-day) deadline is provided for entrepreneurs who are in the business of trading in vehicles.

The financial penalty for failure to comply with the formalities is a minimum of PLN 500.

Notification of the disposal of a vehicle does not require a personal appearance at the office. Formalities can be completed electronically (using the ePUAP platform) or by sending documents by mail to the address of the magistrate.
