The - Carte Grise Vehicle Registration Document

The immatriculation is a vehicle's registration. The details of a vehicle's registration are carried in the Carte Grise (grey card). When a car is bought or sold, the new ownership must be registered within 15 days of the transfer and a new Carte Grise will be issued to the new owner.

Paperwork can be handled by the Prefecture or the Sous-Prefecture.

You should carry the Carte Grise (or ideally, a police stamped copy) in the car at all times.

If you have brought a car into France you will need to go through a registration process before you can get a Carte Grise. See: Registering a Foreign Vehicle in France

Buying & Registering a Used Car:

Before agreeing to buy a used car:

bulletMake sure that the series number stamped on the car matches that in the registration documents of the seller.
bulletMake sure that the seller is the legally registered owner of the car by checking on the Carte Grise.
bulletAnd/or make sure that the seller provides a certificat de situation, which includes a certificate of non-security (valid for one month) and a certificate of non-opposition (valid for two months) proving that the car may be sold.

To register the car you must provide:

bulletA completed certificat d'immatriculation, registration document is available from the Préfecture, Sous-Préfecture, Mairie or police, or download the Form Cerfa 10672*01 
bulletThe Carte Grise registration document of the previous owner, marked in indelible ink "Vendu le..." or "Cédé le..." with the date of the sale and signature of previous owner and dealers stamp if appropriate.
bulletA certificate de situation provided by the seller (see above).
bulletA certificat de cession or certificate of transfer and sale from the previous owner. The date of sale should the same as that on the sellers car registration document.
bulletProof of your identity: passport, Carte de Séjour or French driving licence.
bulletIf the car is older than 4 years, a contrôle technique (CT) certificate, no older than 6 months, which is the proof of roadworthiness provided by the seller.
bulletMoney to pay the registration fee.

Tariffs for Carte Grise are based on he CV of the car. Full price list from the Préfecture of the Alpes-Maritimes (click on the word "circulation" and then the link to "immatriculations carte grise" and then se the bottom link of that page).

After an Accident

If your car is involved in a severe accident, the police may take the Carte Grise and send it to the Prefecture.

If you feel the car can be repaired, you will need to get a report from a recognised expert, which explains the damage and proves that the car will be safe once repaired. The expert will provide a certificate which must be taken to the to the Préfecture. If it is satisfactory,  your Carte Grise will be returned to you.

If the car cannot be repaired you must notify the Préfecture and the registration will be cancelled.

Destruction of the Vehicle

If you decide to sell your car to a scrapper or scrap it yourself, you have to notify the Préfecture or Sous-Préfecture where the car is registered. There is a very stiff fine if you do not do this within 15 days of scrapping.

You must send your Préfecture or Sous-Préfecture:

bulletA déclaration de remise, Form Cerfa 47-0192
bulletThe Carte Grise, with the top corner cut off as marked on the card
