New System For Car Registration Plates


New regulations on car number plates in France came into force on the 15th April 09. The new regulations mean that cars will now be assigned a vehicle registration number (numéro d’immatriculation) which lasts for the life of the vehicle.

The new simplified registration system means that car owners and buyers will no longer need to change the number plate if moving to a different department or purchasing a vehicle from outside of the department in which they live.

New French number plate

New cars bought after the 15th April will receive the new number plates immediately while existing cars can continue to use their old registration numbers up until the vehicle is either sold or if changes need to be made to the registration documents (Carte Grise).

When the car does need new plates owners can if desired display their department's two digit number and regional badge on the right hand side of the registration number.
