Having recently bought a second hand car, we visited St Gaudens sub-prefecture only to find it is closed. Now we have to apply on line, and obtain verification of identity via "La Post", and then France Connect. After 5 weeks of failed attempts (and hours of wasted time) to get registered, it finally transpires today that we cannot as we are not permanent residents in France... Has anyone else had this issue?Their e-mail says we either have to use a registered garage (and pay them) or get someone who is already registered to do it for us. Seems bonkers, and it is also clear that the new system is not entirely ready before closing the old one.As ever, digital trumps analog for promising a better system but really taking more time, costing more jobs of real people and achieving garnering more private info to presumably sell on to Facebook or Google in the future.

I need some work doing on our Land Rover Discovery but don't want to pay official Land Rover dealer prices. Can anyone recommend an independent garage in the Albi area please?

Now I am getting older I don't drive as much and my daughter, who lives with us, is the de-facto principal driver.I would like to make a gift of the car to my daughter but would this mean having to re-register the car in her name and pay new registration fees. In the case of this car that would be a bit over 600 Euro.ThanksDave

I'm sure I'm not the first to notice how the day rate for hiring at Europcar Blagnac has shot up since Brexit. At least that's how it seems to me. I assume sterling/euro is to blame since. Bookings are managed by the franchisee at Blagnac I'm told - not centrally with Europcar. They set their own rates too. Has anyone found a cheaper way around this? Easyjet remains a reasonable deal, but when you add the daily car hire the whole trip suddenly becomes pretty costly.  Many thanks in advance, Jeremy

We have organised a charity bike ride,  'Le Tour LSCR',  from Thermes Magnoac (65230) to Oxford to raise money for leukaemia  stem cell research. Our route takes us around Bordeaux through Cognac, Saumur and finally to Ouistreham. We will be leaving on 2nd April and arriving at Oxford on 14th April. We may need some assistance with transport and possibly accommodation. Please let me know If you think you might be able to help or even take part!

Swotting up on my Insurance and what equipment was required in my car when driving in France - amongst everything else it said Snow Chains. Has the law changed on this or have I always broken the law? I've never carried any chains before - even up into Andorra during the winter.

Hello all,I have moved back to the UK from France, to join the Fireservice. So, now I have an old LHD Renault 5 which I have been in talks with Giveacar.com charity, to donate too. They say they will provide a certificate of destruction (any proceeds of breaking the car go to the charity I choose). What I would like to know is what do I have to do??I have a print out of the Declaration De Cession D'un Vehicle, which I assume I must fill out and give one copy to the person who comes and picks the car up....Another copy to be sent to some immatriculation centre in Brittany..?They also stated I would probably need to send the number plates back to the Immatriculation centre too...?What about the Carte Gris? Does that need to be crossed out and have something written on it, then given to the person who picks up the car, or sent back to France as well?I see other topics on selling vehicles, but this is to scrap the vehicle here in the UK and donate to the charity...Any help welcome as my fire officer has said it has to be moved from the forecourt VERY soon!Thanks,Nat

Hi Has anyone been to St Gaudens to the prefecture to register there car with out COC, because "Type approval Number" on the V5 document which we were told removes the need for a Certificate of Conformity when getting a Carte Gris.

Although prices have gone up between 15-30% in the last ten years - we are due another set of price hikes in 2017 & 2018.To finance €1billion planned road improvements drivers will be charge between 0,3-0,4% more at the "péage/toll" and this is in addition to the rise in tarifs imposed by the consessionnaire companies who manage the tolls of 1.45% in 2018.Le Dépeche has the story here:http://www.ladepeche.fr/article/2016/09/20/2422465-autoroutes-les-peages-encore-en-hausse.html#xtor=EPR-1Giles
