Cars and the obligatory contrôle technique

Post by Wormwood on Tue Nov 25, 2014 11:03 am

Help a newbie out purleeze.

Bringing our right hand drive Fiat (Noah) over in Jan when we move. Noah is currently taxed and Mot’d etc as per UK regs, but will be living permanently in France from Jan onwards.

I presume lights etc will need to be changed over – but when would he need a contrôle technique.

Cheers in anticipation of a little guidance. Rolling Eyes

You have to re-register Noah on to French plates within one month of bringing it to France. We have just bought another car in the U.K. and brought it over so my information is as up to date as it can be as I re-registered it yesterday.

1) Get a Control Technique - we've just been given a 'verbal' one (this is still a piece of paper) lasting two months until we change the headlights.

2) Obtain a 'Certificate de non-gage' from your prefecture - this is a piece of paper showing there is no outstanding debt on the car.

3) Go to your Prefecture with the following:-

(a) The two above pieces of paper.
(b) Proof of domicile (EDF or France Telecom) in the name of the person who will be the registered owner of the car.
(c) The U.K. registration document
(d) Proof of Identity (Passport)
(e) You might need a Certificate of Conformity BUT I found information on the Correze Prefecture website saying that this is not necessary IF the car has been previously registered in the E.U. and the registration document contains all the information required for the Carte Grise.

The CoC has long been a bone of contention, so I printed up the relevant information and took it with me, prepared to do battle, but the lady at the prefecture was happy to put through the information according to the U.K. Registration Cert (which was fully completed).

(f) 'Demande de certificat d'immatriculation d'un véhicule'

You can fill out the 'Demande de certificat d'immatriculation d'un véhicule' at the Prefecture, or download it from the sites listed below.
You don't say where you will be living but the relevant Prefecture information sites are:

Haute Vienne - http://www.haute-vienne.gouv.fr/Demarches-administratives/Cartes-grises#F1050

Creuse - http://www.creuse.gouv.fr/Demarches-administratives/Cartes-grises#F1050

Correze - http://www.correze.gouv.fr/Demarches-administratives/Systeme-d-immatriculation-des-vehicules#F1050

It cost us 258€ (plus 74€ for the CT and there will be the number plates to buy too) but this can vary quite a lot depending on the car and its emissions. All the information can the found on the above sites by trawling around.

Hope this helps.

Amber many thanks for such a comprehensive reply. I shall endeavour to follow the process you've described.

If all else fails I'll resort to horse and cart. Cool

We are attempting to do ours, but the Control Technique people won't do their bit until we present a CoC.

I would suggest you try another CT station - we've never had that problem and have had three UK reg. cars go through the CT without a CoC.

Unless, of course, you have an unusual make/model that is not recognised in France.
