Vehicle registration is managed by the Ministry of Home Affairs (Ministère de l’intérieur). The vehicle registration certificate grants authorisation to circulate on public roads but is not proof of ownership. It is delivered as a single document via the website of the Agence nationale des titres sécurisés (ANTS) or via a certified car professional. The Imprimerie Nationale issues this document and sends it to the car owner.
Period of validity
Valid until the vehicle has a new owner. When the vehicle has a new owner, the old certificate should have lines drawn through it, be signed and include the words “sold on .../.../…” or “transferred on .../.../…” in legible and permanent writing.
