When you import a vehicle into France or get a new or next-hand vehicle, it have to be registered at the préfecture or sous-préfecture in the department the place you’re resident inside of 15 days.
n Paris, the registration is completed by the préfecture de police or the town hall ( mairie) of your arrondissement. If you import a car, you must receive customs clearance and have it inspected by the DRIRE just before it can be registered.
Registration Document
A vehicle registration document is known as a ‘grey card’ ( carte grise). Sans permis vehicles have a mini-carte grise, but the registration procedure is otherwise the very same as with regular vehicles. It have to be utilized for in person at your regional préfecture. (The authorities intends to make it achievable to acquire a registration doc by put up or on-line, as a result depriving hundreds of thousands of individuals of the pleasure of queuing for hrs to get one.) Since June 2004, cartes grises have integrated a tear-off part, which must be concluded by the vendor.
You should current this and the revenue certification ( certificat de vente), certificat de non-gage and certificat de non-opposition that you obtained from the seller, specialized inspection certification, if relevant, and a photocopy of your carte de séjour or passport and full a registration request kind ( demande de certificat d’immatriculation), available in some cases from your mairie or hôtel de ville.
If you shift to a new tackle in the very same division, you must at the moment tell your préfecture of your adjust of tackle. Even so, if you shift to a different division, you should re-sign up your car with the new préfecture in 3 months.

Registration Number
changement carte grise
Presently, the previous two digits of a car’s registration variety ( numéro d’immatriculation) correspond to the amount of the division the place it’s registered, e.g. sixty two for Pas-de-Calais. (Personalised numbers really do not exist, though it’s achievable to receive a kind of personalised quantity by requesting a amount that starts with a certain digit or sequence of digits and ready until it gets offered.)
The other figures and letters have no significance but give an sign of the age of a vehicle (unless of course it has been re-registered), as letters and figures are issued in sequence (e.g. 1234 XH sixty two is an more mature amount than 1234 XK sixty two). Nonetheless, number plates are set to adjust in 2006, when the original department quantity is to disappear in favour of a two letters/a few figures/two letters structure. Letters and figures will be greater, and plates will have a area on the appropriate for a departmental or other figuring out logo. As usual, nonetheless, the French are conducting endless discussions as to the best system.
