"I have a 1975 Land Rover , they registered it on collectors plates so now I can't drive it unless its to a bloody collectors meeting"

What on earth are you talking about?, it used to be that you could only drive a collectors car in your own and berdering departments without a permit but that restriction was removed some years ago, I think at the same time as the general shake up of number plates and the introduction of 5 yearly CTs for collectors cars

Hi Fred,

I went down the collecters route but the nice lady at the prefecture said it was not a good idea, So I went with the normal registration for the Triumph T100ss.

I have a 1975 Land Rover , they registered it on collectors plates so now I can't drive it unless its to a bloody collectors meeting and I can't change it back to a normal registration so its now useless to me as an everyday car ..  Be carefull what you do ..

You will still have to register it onto French plates though.

Hi Damian,

The french do not have private numbers, What I did with my 1968 Triumph T100ss was to inform DVLA that I was taking the bike out of the country for a few years (working abroad )  They can hold a number for you, Not much demand for 1968 numbers though.

Happy biking in France.

Steve.
