Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Vehicle registration documents since 01-10-2005

The implementation of EU Directive 1999/37/EU "Registration Documents for Vehicles" in national law and legal requirements for data protection have necessitated the introduction of new, falsification-proof registration documents.
Since 01.10.2005, only the new documents are issued by the registration authorities in the event of new registrations, change of ownership, registration of technical modifications and all other matters.
The new registration documents are comprised of:
Registration certificate part I, which replaces the certificate of registration and
Registration certificate part II, which replaces the vehicle log book.
Registration certificate part I (certificate of registration)
Contains all vehicle technical data which must be available to register a vehicle in Europe; however, only one wheel and tyre combination approved as standard is specified
Contains the EU-wide, standardised, alphanumerical codes assigned to the technical data, so that the German registration certificate can be converted without problems into the registration document prescribed in non-member European countries for registration there
Contains a field for documenting temporary or final immobilisation of the vehicle, and is therefore no longer withdrawn in the event of temporary or final immobilisation
Registration certificate part II (vehicle log book)
Contains the note that the holder of the registration certificate is not identified as the owner
Contains only the current and, if applicable, the last vehicle owner; the actual number of previous owners is shown numerically
Contains only a small percentage of the technical vehicle data
No longer serves to document temporary vehicle deregistration. The vehicle and body type specified under number 1 in the old vehicle documents will not exist in the future. In the new documents, this will be replaced by standardised EU vehicle classes with body type
Introduction of the new registration documents will lead to barely any changes for the vehicle operator.
Like the old certificate of registration, the registration certificate part I (certificate of registration) must be kept in the vehicle and submitted to responsible persons on request.
It is not necessary for the wheel and tyre combination specified in the registration certificate part I (certificate of registration) to be fitted. All combinations approved according to the general vehicle type approval or EU type approval → Chapter may be fitted.
The validity of a wheel and tyre combination which deviates from the general vehicle type approval or EU type approval must still be verified via an entry in the registration certificate part I (certificate of registration), an installation certificate based on a part certificate or general type approval for the wheel and tyre combination.
   
Technical conditions
The wheel and tyre combinations and conversions listed in the tables of the individual vehicles refer exclusively to genuine wheel rims. ...
