This then usually also German, so that it is correspondingly easier

So you give the settlement in competent hands and has it easier, but you have to pay extra for these services.

From an engineer, the so-called Homologación of the vehicle is carried out in the entswprechenden workshops. The expert then draws up the certificate for the car

The Asesoria then informs about the costs, which one has to pay.
Among other things, the registration tax of the car s has to be paid to the responsible tax office as well as the vehicle tax at the responsible city hall.
Once all necessary payments have been made, and the necessary certificates are available, the vehicle owner gets the approval, the Permiso de Circulación and a new license plate at the vehicle registration office.
