Change of Ownership

The table in this attachment includes the information, requirements, forms and fees related to the change of ownership of a vehicle, depending on the nature of the change being done.

NOTE 1: If buyer requests personalised plates, the circulation licence of the vehicle will be adjusted depending on the 1st letter of the new plates.

NOTE 2: If the tax exemption was originally issued due to Special Needs:

  • If vehicle is less than 10 years from first registration, the registration tax shall be paid. Otherwise a new approval from MFIN is to be presented stating that the registration tax exemption can be transferred onto new owner; and
  • If the 10 years have passed since the first registration, the restriction will be lifted (hence no registration tax will be due).

NOTE 3: If the tax exemption was originally issued for reasons other than disability, the registration tax shall be paid subject to the valuation issued by Transport Malta’s Technical Unit.

NOTE 4: If logbook is lost, the following addition documents are required :

NOTE 5: A registration certificate which, for any reason, is filled or signed incorrectly may be declared as null following the submission of a declaration signed by all involved parties (buyer, seller and witness). The correct signatures must then be submitted on form VEH 50.

NOTE 6: Requests for vehicles transfers where the registration certificate is missing any of the signatures of seller, buyer and witness will not be considered.
