First-time registration of a vehicle

You can use the service for the first-time registration of a new car, motorcycle or any other vehicle. Complete the first-time registration before taking the vehicle into traffic use. To submit a notification via e-Services, you will need a digital certificate, which will be provided to you by the seller. Please note that some of Traficom’s e-services and PDF forms are only available in Finnish and Swedish.

The service can be used for the first-time registration of a new vehicle if the vehicle has a registration number and registration plates. Complete the first-time registration before taking the vehicle into traffic use and attaching the registration plates to the vehicle. To report via the service, you will need a digital certificate, which will be provided to you by the seller. The date on which the first-time registration is made is marked as the date on which the vehicle was taken into use.

You can take the vehicle into traffic use immediately after you have completed the first-time registration and attached the registration plates. Registration plates are paid when completing the first-time registration of the vehicle and the price of the registration plates is added to the first-time registration fee.

Here is what you need to do:

1:

Sign in to the My e-Services service and select First-time registration using a digital certificate. Fill in the vehicle's information.

2:

Make the payment for the first-time registration and return to the service. A receipt will be provided for you.

3:

The final task is to check in My e-Services that your vehicle's information has been updated. It may take 5–10 minutes for the information to be updated.

Once the registration plates have been attached to the vehicle, you can start using the vehicle.
