About the W Garage certificate request

It is valid for the calendar year and must be renewed each year between November 1 and December 31.

After this date, you will have to reapply and not renew and you will obtain a new number, which will require you to change your plates.

The W garage certificate is attached to the automotive professional. It allows him to manufacture number plates.

The plates are removable. They are attached to the vehicle that he wishes to circulate on the public highway at a given time (to carry out a test for example). They are then removed and can be attached to another vehicle. Only one vehicle can drive with the W garage at a time.
The original of the certificate must be on board the vehicle in circulation. It must be presented in the event of an inspection.

Note: if the W garage certificate is used for an already registered vehicle, only the W number must be used.
