All vehicles are registered through the 31st Security Forces Squadron AMVRO. All personally owned vehicles and all government owned vehicles are assigned an AFI plate number to the vehicle. Each active duty member, logistically supported civilian, and contractor is permitted a maximum of 3 vehicle registrations at one time. The primary vehicle receives fuel rations and will not pay annual Italian road tax. Secondary vehicles are NOT authorized fuel rations and WILL pay annual Italian road tax. Annual renewal of your registration is also required to receive a new gas card each year for your primary vehicle. ALL vehicles must be current and up to date to received fuel rations. Appointments will only be made for initial registrations and vehicle transfers.

Number of Allowed Vehicles Registered

You are only allowed to have maximum of three vehicles registered at one time, as well as three per tour.  If you ship, salvage, or sell, one of the vehicles and plan on buying another vehicle after already meeting the three vehicles per tour, please call Pass and Registration a minimum one day prior to request a vehicle unlock.  The request is sent to Naples, the central MVRO headquarters which can take up to a day to complete the request.


If you have a motorcycle shipped here via TMO, you will not be allowed to pick up the vehicle from TMO until the vehicle is registered. In order for your motorcycle to be registered you will need to visit AMVRO with your vehicle title or previous registration, insurance, and your T-1 (customs form) from TMO inbound. If you have three vehicles already registered TMO WILL NOT deliver the motorcycle with your household goods. If that happens, the two options available to you in order to have your motorcycle delivered are to either sell one of your previous registered vehicles, or pay an importation fee. If you decide to pay the importation fee, the fee is 33% of the vehicle's worth plus 22% sales tax. The vehicle must be stored in your garage or a storage facility at your own expense for the duration of your tour in Italy. The Motorcycle will not be allowed to be driven or registered during the rest of your tour. Once you are ready to PCS, you will be able to ship your motorcycle through household goods after TMO has verified your vehicle was never registered in the AFI system. In all other cases for motorcycle registrations, please make contact with your Unit Motorcycle Representative first. It is highly recommended before purchasing a motorcycle you ensure you meet your state’s requirements. This will save you time and money.
