Sometimes, the deadline can be extended if the request is incomplete or must be analyzed by the instructing service.

Good to know: the conversion of an old registration (type 123 AB 01, known as FNI) into a SIV number has no consequence on the validity of the roadworthiness test. The minutes of the technical inspection shall be authentic.

If you make a change of holder whose gray card is an old registration, you will have at the end of your procedure a Provisional Certificate of Registration (CPI) and a new registration in SIV number, this document is to be printed to allow you to circulate the time to receive your gray card but also to buy your new license plates.

If you are absent during the passage of the postman, a notice of passage will be deposited with you. You then have 15 days to retrieve your document from La Poste (or give power of attorney to a third party to do it for you). After this period, the title is returned to the sender. You will need to contact ANTS to have it returned to you.

Note : you must keep the old registration card for 5 years, then destroy it.
