Home Car Insurance License plate Lost registration certificate

What should I do if I have lost a Part 3 certificate of registration?

The registration certificate part 3 has been called the transfer certificate since June 1, 2014. As of January 1, 2014, this has again been replaced by the registration code. This is the part needed when transferring the license plate and you must keep it at home.

Until June 1, 2004, there was a Part 3 registration certificate, which was the proof of ownership of the car. The person in possession of it was considered to be the owner. Without part 3 registration certificate, you could not sell the vehicle. In fact, you needed part 3 to convert the registration certificate to the new owner at the post office.
