      Hello, George!
      Thank you for the question asked.
      I am glad to help you. Every single contract for buying (selling) a car has to be in written form in Bulgaria and has to have a notary stamp and signature on it. The seller has to give you two car registration documents (big and small one), a valid document for passed technical test and a valid car insurance.
      There are here 2 cases:
      1) He gives you the car with the bulgarian registration plates. You drive the car to Greece and register there on your name.
      2) He gives you the car without registration plates and you purchase car assistance which transports the car from Bulgaria to Greece.
      I can support you in both cases if you need any help with documents check and transport arrangement.
      If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask me.
      Best regards
      Georgi

      Hi, George!
      Thank you for asking!
      1. It depends. Which of the 2 options have you chosen? To buy a car and drive it with the Bulgarian plates to Greece or to transport it on a platform to Greece with no plates? Bulgarian Transit plates are valid only for Bulgaria. You can drive to the Bulgarian border with them.
      2. You can find me in Sofia and warn me the earliest the better. Usually, at least 2-3 days in advance.
      3. It depends what services exactly you require: 1) to buy the car instead of you 2) to translate you 3) to check the for you 4) to arrange you the car-platform and the transport to Greece 5) To arrange you transit plates for 30 days, so that you can drive the car to Greece
      I am also doing car check at the place of the car.
      On this link you can find cars which I have already check. It is in bulgarian:
      http://cars-help.com/bg/uslugi/pokupka-na-avtomobil-ot-sofiya-vraca-dupnica-blagoevgrad-i-drugi-gradove-okolo-sofia/

      The car check for cars located in Sofia is currently at the price of 40 BGN. Currently the car check in a trustworthy car service garage of mine costs 80 BGN.

      I am looking forward for your reply!

      Best Regards

      Hello, George!
      If you have not chosen a car yet, you can go to http://www.mobile.bg or http://www.cars.bg in order to choose the right car for you. After you have chosen it you can send me the link to the car via WhatsApp or Email. I will go and check the car for you. Afterthat, if the car is OK, I can reserve it for you. Then you come to Sofia, we finalize the contract between you and the seller and you can drive it home. But you have to know in advance that not every seller will agree to sell his/her car with the bulgarian plates on it. If I have to sell mines, I will never sell it with the plates.
      What do you think about the process?

      Best Regards

    why not sell with Bulgarian dishes there is some reason? if they sell with Bulgarian numbers, only a notary contract is required and I go to Greece; or has another process

      Yes, in case you make a violation of the driving rules the owner of the car will be accountable for paying the fees. For example if you drive 90kmh by speed limit of 50 with the bulgarian plates, the bulgarian owner will be penalized for the violation and not you, the driver (in case of a speed camera on the road). Another example is a bank robbery or gas station robbery with a car which does not belong to you. There are many cases here. Some people may sell it this way, some may not. It depends on the personality I think.

      Yes, exactly. This is the process. I do not understand exactly what you mean under “a small big coupon” but the documents are:
      1) A contract signed and stamped by the both parties and by a notary 2) Car insurance 3) Small and big car’s registration certificate 4) Technical inspektion

      HI Aleksandar!
      Thank you for your Question! As far as I understand you have bought a car in Bulgaria and now you would like to register it in Bosnia. Would you please send me per email the contract you have signed with the bulgarian seller, so that I can have a full visibility over the documents. After that I will reply! Thank you!

        Hi Aleksandar!
        I saw the documents but you are missing the notary signed contract for sale of a car. This contract is obligatory to be signed for a car with bulgarian registration plates and registration certificate. You have to come back to Bulgaria and sign a contract in front of a notary together with the seller of the car. Only than the deal of sale is valid. This is my advise to you.
        Best Regards
        Georgi

    Yes, I understand that, but I would like to unregister car in bulgaria. Is that contract still needed for that.

      Yes, the contract is still needed. Otherwise you cannot prove your ownership of the car. You cannot cancel the registration if you are not the owner or you don’t have a power of attorney to do it.

      Hi Ihor!
      Yes, you can. You need transit plates for export. Therefore, the car has to go through VIN and engine number check at car registration authorities in Sofia.
      Good luck!

    Hi Georgi, you have a very good web site. I see that you give a lot of advise in Bulgarian for people applying for and getting their driving licence. I am English and want to exchange my British Driving Licence for a Bulgarian Driving Licence. I am applying for permanent residency in the next two months so am entitled to exchange one licence for the other. I know I need a driving license medical declaration. Do you know where I can Download such a document? Also any other advice you could give me would be very much appreciated. Kind regards Bob.

    Здравей Георги, имаш много добър уеб сайт. Виждам, че давате много съвети на български за хора, кандидатстващи за и получаване на свидетелство за управление. Аз съм английски и искам да обменя британския си шофьорски лиценз за български шофьорски лиценз. Кандидатствам за постоянно пребиваване през следващите два месеца, така че имам право да обменя един лиценз за другия. Знам, че ми трябва медицинска декларация за свидетелство за управление. Знаете ли къде мога да изтегля такъв документ? Също така всеки друг съвет, който може да ми дадете, би бил много ценен. Поздрави Боб.

      Hi, Bob! Thank you very much for your question. I am glad to help you. You can get the medical declaration from your personal doctor. Everybody in Bulgaria is supposed to have one. First you need to get your bulgarian ID card, then you go to the doctor for medicine protocol and then you go to the police department in your city to apply for driving license replacement. I hope that helps.
      Best Regards

    Dear Georgi,

    We have just talked on the telephone. I am the owner of a BMWF800GS registered in BULGARIA, and need to have a renewal of my annual technical certificate. Could you please let me know the nearest town in BULGARIA that can give me this service, and how much it would cost ? I am currently in Ouranopolis in Greece.

    Thank you very much for your help !

    Jason

      Hi, Jason!
      Thank you for your question. The closes technical check points to the border of Greece are in the city of Petrich. You just have to type “технически преглед Петрич” (“technical check in Petrich) and you will see couple of results on google maps and you can drive straight there. Usually a technical check of a car costs 35 BGN. Therefore it will not be more expensive then that. You don’t have to worry about passing the border with out-of-date technical check, because they do not check that – they check only passenger documents and vehicle’s registration certificate. But if you get stopped by the police on the road they will fine you 50 BGN but you can still keep driving.
      I hope that helps.
      All the Best
      Georgi
