The laws have now changed. If you are importing a vehicle from one European country to another, you no longer need a C of C.

You will, however, need one if you are importing a vehicle from say the U.S. into Europe.

Check it out and good luck.

You will still need a C.O.C if item K on the V5C does not have your Type Approval Number.

Hi Gravelle

Would be interested to know where you got this information, having just returned from the prefecture you most definately do need one for older vehicles, possibly not if the information is on the newer log books...but it's certainly not sweeping.

Hi Jaybird,

From the French T.V. about three weeks ago. It was explaining the revisions of European Laws from Bruxelles.
