Importing Motorbikes and Scooters

Find out the procedure for importing motorcycles and scooters into Portugal...

The procedure is virtually the same as for cars and other light vehicles except that a test will be required on noise emissions. Present the following documents to the IMT and Customs and Vehicle Registry as described above.

  • Fill out a vehicle registration application form and give it to the official representative of the vehicle producer in Portugal for certification (Homologacão)
  • Take the motorbike or scooter to an IMT approved test centre (IPO) for a roadworthiness test including noise inspection

Registration can also be done online via the Automóvel Online platform. Online registrations benefit from a 15% discount.
