Hi, this is a bit esoteric, but might be useful to someone…? Apologies in advance (I can hear the yawns already )
We submitted an incorrect carte gris for me after I purchased a second-hand 650cc (kW power 49) motorcycle as an A level moto rider, but I am A2. It turns out that the kW power has had to be adjusted for me to get insurance and I must request a new carte-gris. I think I’ve found how to request one, for ‘modification technique’: log into my ANTS account, go to certificat d’immatriculation --> Autre --> Parcours guide --> Pour commencer --> https://mesdemarches.siv.interieur.gouv.fr/siv-tp/#/complementaires
We needed to change the kW power output on my motorcycle from 49 to 35, to reflect my A2 status on my permis to conduire. We did this. [BTW, the re-fit (throttle linkage stop fitted) was not performed by a garage, but by OH. That might be an impediment to approval for insurance so remains to be seen. ]
Next we visited a local agency to submit a request for insurance. We didn’t bring in the proof of motorcycle restriction. If only we’d thought to bring the Certificate of Motorcycle Restriction with us, when we went to the insurance agency in October in person … ah the days before re-confinement. Then again, it might not have helped that much, since the nice associate at the local insurance agency was an intermediary and not a direct agent for Xenassur the moto insurance company. She wasn’t familiar with the A2 restricted power output situation and she spoke only French and we speak limited French so perhaps that’s a lesson as well. Bottom line is that we set up the carte gris incorrectly and the insurance associate submitted what we gave her, and we left the insurance agency with a temporary one month’s worth of motorcycle insurance in hand, pending full approval. This week we received a letter from Xenassur stating that they can’t give insurance because field J.1 on the carte-gris gives the wrong description of, I guess, power output…? Carrosserie…? It currently (incorrectly for my situation) states ‘MTT2’ in that field. Xenassur instructed us to go to ANTS and request a change to the carte-gris (certificat d’immatriculation [but you knew that]).
On ANTS, it would be straightforward to request a change for example, for my address. But for this situation I needed to find where to request to change a ‘field’ : modification technique.
Today finally I think I’ve found how to request a new carte gris for modification technique: log into my ANTS account, go to certificat d’immatriculation --> Autre --> Parcours guide --> Pour commencer https://mesdemarches.siv.interieur.gouv.fr/siv-tp/#/complementaires
BTW they request the following docs (images 1 Mb size format or less):
- current proof of residence (electric bill, etc),
- the ex-carte gris, and
- attestation de conformité liée au débridage de ma moto (certificate of motorcycle restriction).
As I mentioned, the re-fit (throttle linkage stop fitted) was not performed by a garage, but by OH. That might be an impediment to approval.
If anyone’s at all interested, I’ll keep you posted on how I fare with the process.
NB: in the US, my driver’s license reflects permission to ride any cc of motorcycle. It comes from one of the few states in the US where a US - France equivalent exchange of drivers’ licenses can occur. This includes car and motorcycle, except France permis limits the exchange equivalent to only up to A2. We found this out a bit late in the game; there are motorcycles for sale with the adjustment already made. It seems you can even get a Harley with such adjustment.
