How old can the CT be when registering a car


Recommended Posts

Hi There

I am looking at buying a used car but i am unsure on how old the ct can be to re register the car. Surely if a CT last for 2 years in should not need have anymore than say 6 months left. Can you also tell me what forms are required. The last car i registered in france was my english car (never again) and we had so many forms to feel out i swore i would never do it again.

Any help will be welcome

You must register the change of ownership within one month of the purchase.

The seller will give you the carte grise (crossed out and marked 'vendu'), a certificat de situation/non-gage (tells you whether there's any outstanding finance or legal charges registered against the car), a CT certificicate dated no older than six months and a certificat de cession (transfering ownership of the vehicle to you).  Fill in a demande de certificat d'immatriculation form at your prefecture and hand in all the papers together with your passport, a utility bill and the registration fee.
