Car ownersmust provide the vehicle's registration as proof of ownership and some form of identification, such as a driver's license or passport. Drivers may also order keys for cars that they do not own; however, the vehicle's owner must sign and date an authorization for the driver. Only Mercedes-Benz dealers are authorized to replace Mercedes smart keys.
