You pay vehicle registration tax for the first time when you register a vehicle. From 1 January 2016, electric cars are no longer exempt from tax. Hydrogen-powered vehicles, however, are exempt from tax.

You will be charged vehicle registration tax if you import a vehicle.

If you buy a new car in Denmark, the car dealer usually handles vehicle registration tax and number plates.

Please see our legal guide (in Danish) for further legal information.
