The Danish Motor Vehicle Agency has four vehicle registration offices around Denmark.

Vehicle registration offices close temporarily

The vehicle registration offices will be closed extraordinarily in the period up to and including Monday 13 April to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

Persons without a Danish civil registration (CPR) number cannot be supplied with temporary stickers during this period. Temporary stickers will also not be issued at the customs clearance offices.

If you have a Danish civil registration (CPR) number, you can still order temporary stickers at www.skat.dk under à Motor vehicles à Number plates à Temporary stickers and commercial plates. Until further notice, you can also get temporary stickers at private vehicle inspection centres.

If you urgently need help from the Motor Vehicle Agency, please call our Customer Centre on tel. +45 72 22 15 15.
