dawnyowl, as has been posted over and over, it isn't a question of when the MOT runs out, you have to re-register your car if you are a French resident.

You can also do it via your Mairie.

Thanks for your replies -dawnyowl my car isn't a Uk car, I'm buying it here in France, so I don't know what to advise, sorry. I would have thought you would need to get a control technique if you live here and your car is registered here but I don't know.

And eurokiné- thanks for sharing your experience, it sounds like you went down to the prefecture -maybe. It's good to know that system is reliable.

we did it in cagnes sur mer at a place which just takes your documents & your cheque, gives you instantly a provisional carte grise & the rest comes in the post about 5 days later. I dont remember their details off hand but I posted everything at the time here so an archive search should find the contact info
