What is Carte grise française?
Buy fake certificat d’immatriculation, Buy fake Carte grise française, EVERY vehicle (whether a car, motorbike, moped, campervan etc…) in France has its own registration document: the certificat d’immatriculation, which is informally known as the carte grise. We explain more about this important document.
The carte grise must always be available when using the vehicle and may be asked for if, for example, you are subject to a police check (even so, it is not recommended you keep it permanently in the car, but rather in your pocket/hand bag etc, in case the car is stolen).
When you buy a car from a member of the public, they should give you the card; if you buy a new car, it is up to you to register for one with the prefecture, although the dealer will normally help with this.
The format of the carte grise changed in 2009 when a new number plate system came in. 8Plates now stay with the car for life instead of changing if you move department.
The card must be renewed if you move home or change your name. Driving with an out-of-date card (or without one at all) can result in a €135 fine. If you did not already have one of the new numbers, a renewed card will have a new registration number on it and you will need to have the vehicle’s plates changed. When buying a new car, or needing to change to the new numbering system, you receive a provisional carte grise which is valid for a month, while waiting for the definitive one. The document is also needed for trailers and caravans with a maximum laden weight (PTAC) of more than half a ton.
