French Administration

Contact information for the Prefectures and Sous-Prefectures in the Provence region of the South of France. The place to go for residency papers (titre de sejour), vehicle registration papers (carte grise), driving licences and more in France...

Préfecture is the name given to the administrative body of a region (département) and is the capital city of that region. The préfecture is in charge of the delivery of driving licences, passports, identity cards, car registration documents and residency permits.

Each département also has a sub-prefecture (sous-préfecture) able to carry out many (but not all) administrative activities.
