    Final steps!

    You can now exchange your foreign number plate for a French one at any garage and they'll advise you on de-registering your vehicle from its country of origin.

How long will the process take?

Registering your vehicle will usually take between 1 - 3 months.

When should I contact you?

If your primary residence is in France, you are normally obliged to register a foreign vehicle within one month of its arrival. However, you can still register it later than that so just contact us as soon as you are ready.

What is the cost?

The cost depends on your vehicle’s year of registration, horsepower, environmental impact and local car tax.

Once you have given them your details, they’ll send you a free no-obligation detailed quote asap. You can then study the full cost breakdown and decide if you would like to go ahead.

An absolutely excellent service - very knowledgeable and helpful and extremely responsive to my questions. Helped me to re-register my UK car in France, including dealing with a change of address during the process. I thoroughly recommend the team.
