The advantages

The same technical inspection but every 5 years

Beautiful number plates

The new French number plates do not very good household with old cars. This is good, with collection registration certification you will have the possibility to put beautiful black and silver plates on your collection car.

Exemption from national homologation

If the vehicle you wish to acquire does not has never been approved in France but is over 30 years old, so you won't need to go through all that paperwork. You will just have to make a classic collector's license.

Your insurance at a lower cost
