    Hello, I’m interested in buying a car to use it as source of parts for my car. Is there any procedure to delete the new car from the system (it will never be used)?

      Hi Dimitris,
      just buy a car which has been de-registered in Bulgaria. This is simple. And this way you will save as well the notary taxes.

      Hi Karim,
      yes, you will need to apply for export red plates in order to travel outside of Germany with this car.

      Actually not, because the online system is not working. You have to go physically in KAT and ask about this info.

      Hello, Mr. Ivanovic! You have to check on Serbian websites for fines issued in Republic of Serbia. Serbia is outside of EU and the communication between the administration of Bulgaria and Serbia is very slow not saying that it is missing at all.

    Hi Georgi,

    I read some answers about transit plate for drinving to other EU countries. I need a insurance before having the transit plates? Is it right? But if yes, Bulgarian Insurance or from my living country ( Belgium ). I want to buy an used car here for making it old timer in my country. Sincerely

      Hi Jonathan! Yes, it is right. You need an insurance. If you apply for Bulgarian transit number, you need a Bulgarian insurance.
      All the best

    Hi Georgi.
    I want to ask about to buy a car in Bulgaria and to registrate it in foreigner country.
    Can you please tell me the steps? Thanks in advance

      Hi, Paolo! There are 2 options. First one you buy it from a dealer and the car has not yet been registered in Bulgaria. You have to receive from the dealer all the docs for the registration. Additionally you have to pay the civil insurance only. You go to the police administration with car and the papers and ask for export registration, so that you can drive the car by yourself. Second option is to buy a registered car. In this case you go to a notary with the seller. Both parties sign a contract for sale and then you go with the papers to the police administration to ask for export registration again. I hope that helps.

    Well, I’m interested in a BMW E36 318 is,it was my dream car and also that’s what my budget can get(around 2500 leva).I have heard that in Bulgaria it is easy to maintain because parts are everywhere and it is easy to work with by the mechanics,but im worried about 2 things,is it truly cheap to keep up and reliable as the say,also how can we be sure that the car doesnt have Sasi problem’s or major problems at all,and a third one,i don’t wanna be rude or anything but i have seen in bulgaria that many cars get stolen,but i think it is not worth it any more to steal an old bmw e36 23 years old.

      Hello, Konstantin! I would rather not advice you to buy E36. It is a very old car. You will have a lot of problems with the maintenance. You would better buy a newer, smaller, economical car then the old BMW. This is my opinion.

    Hi Mikko

    I have a couple of questions, I have a car registered in Blagoevgrad, I have moved to Lozenec. Do I need to change my registration to Burgas & how would I do that.
    Also I would like to install lpg gas to my car in Serbia with a very good installer I know ! Do I need to have a test in Bulgaria & do they recognize lpg installation from another country.

      Hello, Mr. Ivanovic! Yes, you need to change your car’s registration if you have changed your permanent address on your id card. You go with the car and all documents to KAT Burgas and change plates and registration certificates. You would rather make an LPG installation in a certified Bulgarian installation garage, not in Serbia. Serbia is not in the EU and I don’t think that Serbian mechanics can issue any document required in Bulgaria and EU. And one advise from me – first do the LPG installation and then go to KAT Burgas for changing the number plates.

    Здравейте,

    Ще купувам кола със софийска регистрация, но по постоянен адрес съм във Варна.
    Oт сайта на МВР “Задължението за купувача е да регистрира придобитото ППС в срок до един месец, като задължително представя превозното средство за идентификация и смяна на свидетелството за регистрация и регистрационните табели.”

    Въпросът ми е, имам ли право да карам със софийските номера до КАТ-Варна
    за смяна на регистрация или трябва да се изпрати ППС дотам по друг начин ?

      Здравейте, Петър! Разбира се, че имате право да карате кола със софийските номера. Условията са: регистрацията да е валидна, да имате валиден технически преглед и валидна застраховка. Срокът за пререгистрация СВ-В е 30 дни от датата на подписване на договора пред нотариус.
      Поздрави

    Hi Georgi, I will be moving out of Bulgaria soon and I’m thinking about buying a used car here and exporting it to another EU-country. I have a couple of questions about the export registration. From previous replies here I understood that I can register the car for export. Is this registration valid throughout the European Union? Is there a fixed time period how long I can use these export plates either in Bulgaria or in other EU-countries? Thanks in advance!
