DON'T FORGET YOUR CAR INSURANCE WHEN REGISTERING YOUR VEHICLE!
**Please coordinate with insurance company at least 1-2 days prior to coming in to ensure it is in the system by time you come and get serviced.**
Contact your insurance company and request a “blank insurance card”.
-USAA and Mirascon and GEICO are digital, upon request, the insurance company will send electronically to Sembach HQ and they will input the blank card into the system. Hard copy insurance cards from these companies will not be accepted.
-Local insurance companies (ie. Westfaelische/HUK, and Allianz) will issue a hardcopy “blank insurance card” to bring into Vehicle Registration office. If the insurance company sends to you via email, it will need to be printed and brought to registration office.
-When changing plates you need a new blank insurance card.
KAPAUN AS, Bldg. 2807 (Substation)
All registration renewals, registration updates, and temporary to permanent plate transactions are done at the Substation on a walk-in basis.
** Registration renewals require a NEW vehicle safety inspection done within the last 30 days. **
