License plates are random

License plates ÜB and TT can be reserved from Monday

From Monday, January 13, 2020, the old district license plates ÜB and TT can be reserved in the Bodenseekreis as custom license plates, which are subject to a fee. From February 3, 2020, the two abbreviations will then be issued in addition to FN by the licensing authority of the district. Reserved license plates are blocked for 90 days and therefore do not have to be picked up immediately at the beginning of February. The codes FN, ÜB and TT without a special combination of letters and numbers are not desired codes. They will be randomly assigned by the licensing authority from February 3rd, depending on availability. This means that all citizens of the Lake Constance district can choose between the abbreviations FN, ÜB and TT when they want to register or re-register a vehicle.

In order to avoid possible long waiting times in the vehicle registration offices in Friedrichshafen, Überlingen and Tettnang, especially in the first days of reintroduction, the registration authority recommends using online reservations for desired license plates and online appointment reservations. Both services can also be used by telephone on the authorities' number 115 (without the area code).

The reservation of the desired license plates with the abbreviations ÜB and TT will be activated on January 13th from 8:00 a.m. The licensing authority expressly recommends the electronic option at A maximum of three desired license plates can be reserved per person. Not all letter and number combinations are available for the abbreviation ÜB in the Lake Constance district, because the old district of Überlingen also included localities in today's districts of Sigmaringen and Ravensburg. For technical reasons, certain number plate contingents can therefore only be issued by these licensing authorities if old district numbers have been reintroduced there.

The admissions office in Tettnang is also open on Wednesday afternoons on February 5th, 12th and 19th. All opening times, further useful information and all online services of the vehicle registration authority of the Bodenseekreis at
