Apparantly the "cert de non-gage" is not needed anymore for the "dossier" although the seller should still produce it.  I presume the authorities simply check on-line themselves and refuse the request for a new carte grise if there is a problem.

Yes you do. Did you have a look here? Sometimes the dealers can arrange all the paperwork for you, you could at least ask, but this link will explain it all.

You'll need the certificate de non-gage to register a car which does not have 06 number plates. You can also get them from a machine at the préfecture or the sous-préfecture (at least you could a short while back).

The information you need is only the registration number and the 'date de premier mise en circulation'.

Ought to add that you can get the certificate yourself at this site if you have the details from the carte grise.

Since the certificate is only valid a month, it is possible that a private seller without internet would prefer to wait until a buyer appears before going to the prefecture, so it is not necessarily a bad sign if the seller doesnt have the certificate.

Its the "certificate de situation administrative" and it proves that there is no reason why the owner may not sell the car. e.g. there are no unpaid loans outstanding.  It is usually called "certificate de non-gage"

You dont need it to register the car, but you want to make sure you get it.  The owner has to get it either by going to the prefecture, or by making a request on-line.
