Vehicle registration

A vehicle can be registered only in the name of a foreign national with a temporary or long-term residence registered by the Department for Asylum and Migration Policy of the Ministry of Interior (Hněvkovského 65) for the South Moravia Region. The residence card has to carry the Czech national ID number “rodné číslo”.


A vehicle must be registered, if a foreign national's stay exceeds 185 days. Brno City Municipality, Section of Vehicle License and Registration (Kounicova 67) deal with the registration.

The vehicle must pass the state technical inspection STK (e.g. provided by DEKRA servis) and it must receive certificates of a) technical inspection “Protokol před schválením technické způsobilosti”, b) emissions “Emisní protokol”, c) technical protocol for import with an annex “Technický protokol pro dovoz s přílohou”. The certificates must be issued in the name of the owner and the owner must submit the original technical certificates from the export country. The technical inspection costs approximately 2 000 CZK.
