I moved permanently to France last year. I brought with me a Ford Transit van which I ordered to my specification in March 2011 and received in June 2011. I am trying to get it registered in France but have hit a problem: Ford UK will not issue a Certificate of Conformity because they say the base vehicle was actually built before Sep 2010. The local Controle Technique won’t test it without a CoC (won’t accept the Type Approval number as a substitute either), so I am rather stumped.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions?
