Yes you do need to pay even if the car is garaged, it is the law in France and heavy fines can be enforced. My car was parked at our house and I was waiting for the slip to arrive for our new car and I think someone must of seen I had no slip and reported it to the police and they came around and fined us and I explained I was waiting for it to arrive, they said all cars must be insured even if not being driven, they explained that if someone stole it and drove it then someone was injured by it the owner would be liable. I guess it makes sense even thou I may not agree.

Hope this helps, have a good day

Yes, I have been told that you need to pay for a car you don't even use, even if its off the road. It needs to be insured.
