Have European Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I have only now returned to constant internet contact and noticed your question. For once, I must decline because there is a big gap in my knowledge, namely how does one procure an "Ausfuhrkennzeichen" (export registration plate) in Austria. Specifically, this is a service offered by the OAMTC (which is the drivers' national organization in Austria - http://www.oeamtc.at/), but it is not detailed and I have trouble reaching them from this neck of the woods.
As a general outline, there are always two options: purchasing the car from an authorized dealer, which would then procure the short-term insurance (for this as well I did not find any Germany-like easy option of purchasing it online), and the export registration plates; or from a private person, where it gets tricky, because it seems the only way to procure these two things yourself is to be there and go at the local OAMTC office. I could find no company that does this on-line and I cannot say anything about doing it by proxy.
Please feel free not to rate my answer. I leave it open to other members if they are better informed than me of this issue.

Thank you very much for putting up the issue here.
Indeed, I would rather not engage in Slovenia law. It is very much outside my area of expertise, both in terms of law as of language.
Thank you again for the tactfulness of asking first here.
No, please do not rate it because then the interest of other experts would be zero. I will opt out of it, and remove it from my list, which opens it to any other experts. Then two things can happen: either somebody answers, and you can rate their answer, or no other expert does, in which case it just disappears just like the duplicate one before.
