Matriculation – Transport & Getting Around – Expats Portugal Forum

Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Does anyone know of a Portuguese Agent in the Arganil & Tabua Area that they have used and can recommend to do all the paperwork, legwork, etc for the Matriculation of a U.K Registered Vehicle.

I can´t offer a name as I am in Viseu. Just a warning, I´m not sure if this applies to all agents. My experience, although the end result was good, was like pulling teeth. Every time I went in to the office, they had a request for a different bit of paper. Hope you find a good one!

Hi Tony

Why not do it yourself. It's easy
I live between Gois and Arganil.

I've nearly competed mine.

I used a company called Marino Silva in Vila Nova de Poiares.

The lady there (Isabel) speaks good English.

If you've owned the vehicle for at least 6 months before leaving the UK (and you have 6 months of utility bills to prove you were in the UK) it costs 550 euros*. If not I was told about 2000 euros.

* plus 100 pounds UK embassy certificate (must go to Lisbon in person), plus 76 euros Portuguese inspection.

This is for a Fiat Punto.

All the paperwork sent off now. I assume it's not going to be rejected
