N.B.:
When a vehicle is registered in Austria, the owner receives at the same time the vehicle registration document (known as the “Zulassungsbescheingung”) which consists of 2 unattached parts, not joined together in any way:

1. Zulassungsbescheinigung Part I
2. Zulassungsbescheinigung Part II

Both identically formatted registration documents are filled out identically by the vehicle licensing office. (In Austria this is mostly done through an insurance company). In this way exactly the same details are entered onto both forms. There is only one visible difference (see the following images):

Part I has an orange/bright red stripe on the outer side.
Part II has an grey/blue stripe on the outer side.
When conducting vehicle checks, only Part I with the orange/bright red stripe is valid. Part II has no relevance for a vehicle check, as the owner may still be in possession of this part even though the vehicle is no longer registered.
