General operating instructions
A general operating instruction (ABE
) is required to register a vehicle and for it to be allowed onto public roads. The official document for ABE is the KFZ label, the registration certificate. In this document among other things are - country details, the number of seats, codes and trailer information, also changes in TUV licensed cars (width of tyres, bodywork components etc.). Changes that were made to the vehicle and were not reported in the label may invalidate the KFZ EBA's and are punishable by law.
