I am a dual US/DK citizen, living in the US, and looking into spending about 6 month, driving in Europe. Buying a car In Europe (Denmark, where I will be mostly) is hugely expensive, with the registration fee's etc., and since I know that one can legally drive a car with US plates for 6 months, I was wondering if someone knew if it would be possible to buy a car in Europe, and have it registered in my own state in the US? Plates will of course be sent to my US address, and then forwarded to my address in Europe, but, - is it possible and legal?
If you buy a car in Denmark you must register it there. You cannot drive off with the car from the seller without a valid Danish registration. As long as you own and drive the car you will need a current Danish registration, unless you export the car. Whether your home state in the US is willing to register your car abroad is irrelevant. Driving a car temporarily in Denmark on a US registration is allowed under certain conditions, but only if the car has been brought there from the US.
