There have been a few discussions re. problems with the ANTS website.I've just noticed the following article which shows how bad (chaotic) theprocess is; so don't worry too much if you're caught up in it - so are millions of others!https://actu.orange.fr/france/bug-des-cartes-grises-l-etat-condamne-a-indemniser-des-automobilistes-magic-CNT0000012ybNK.html
Hi, we live near a D road which carries many lorries tractors commuters etc. There is a bump in the road which is from a trench repair and traffic goes bump, especially empty ones.It is worserer at night and wakes us up.Our Marie is not freindly, so who can we ask about flattening the bump?Thanks

I have an old 3.2 S Boxter and am thinking of bringing it to France. I know it will need re registering and wondered how I can find out the cost. Someone has told me that you now have to pay an import duty depending on age, emissions and engine size, they paid 2,500 euro for a Dacia !! Any advice appreciated.
Has anyone come across this problem I passed my driving test in 1967/8 but my English driving licence says it starts from 1977 , I now have a French licence and was having a medical every 2 years so I can drive a motorhome larger than 3.5 but if I can prove I passed my test before 1975 I would keep my rights to this. I have been in touch with DVLA they have no records before 1977 as that was when they took over the licensing. Can anyone suggest what to do.
I am thinking of buying a dirt bike (complete of roader), i am going to look at one on tuesday 01.05.18. Should it have a carte gris.Also i am thinking of joining a local club, which goes on the roads between courses, which makes me think does the club have some kind of insurance cover for these events/weekend trips?Many thanks for any info you may be able to give.
Going back to the UK after 10 years away, and trying to find reasonably-priced car insurance. Most UK insurers won't accept No Claims Bonus accumulated while in France (Saga will, but the document proving it must be in English!). Does anyone know of any UK insurers that will accept a French declaration of NCB?
My Daihatsu makes a strange sound coming from the motor (not the gear). The car has 30000km on the clock. I know two garages: the Ford garage near the dechêterie and the old guy opposite the CA but no experience with them. Where would you go, or do you know a better place?Thanks for your advice...
Just a heads up - if your contrôle technique is coming up, get it done before May. I don't think it's been particularly well announced publicly (if at all), but my neighbour was told on good authority that in May 2018, they will doubling the number of things they will inspect for, and some of those will have to be fixed within 24 hours or you may face a fine. My neighbour took hers early just the other day, and whilst it passed, she was told if she'd brought the car in next month, it would have failed for having rust spots.It seems some people will make a killing from these new regulations, and in the poorer parts of this region, where a lot of people still drive old motors, the hardest up will end up paying the most and potentially be forced into ditching their old motors in pursuit of something newer, which I think is part of the master plan.
