My car is now about 2 years old. I bought it when it was 6 months old from a local garage who often imports them from Italy. Having just read an article the TheLocal about something else, the necessity for a Crit’Air sticker was mentioned for city driving and I don’t have one. I’m struggling to find out how I can get one. My partner got his car new and it came with the sticker but are there other ways to get one?
https://www.certificat-air.gouv.fr/ look here
click on “demander…”
and off you go…
Online…doesn’t cost much and arrives by return as I recall. Here:
Which reminds me I must get another one as have just changed car A.
Sent off for the sticker and received a receipttogether with a temporary certificate to cover me while I’m awaiting the arrival of the proper sticker in the post! My goodness, that system works really well
The Crit-Air people are remarkably efficient - I’ve had two of their stickers (second one because my UK garage peeled off the first one and binned it, thinking it was an old UK tax disc!!) sent to a UK address and both times it arrived very quickly (within a week I think).
I got one because I was planning a trip around Northern France and thought I might end up driving in Lille - in the end I didn’t, but at €4.51 it was cheap enough to have as a precaution on my old VW Passat diesel!
I’m certainly impressed! It cost me 3 euros something to my French address so nothing really. Remains to be seen if the actual sticker arrives before I go off for my short break to the east but even if not, I have the certificate they emailed. I don’t think I’ll be going into a big town but when you are on a break (and the weather looks like it is going to be appalling) you never quite know…
