Thought I saw a post the other day about it taking ages to get the sticker, so banged in my application quickly.

Got an emailed invoice which acts as a temporary sticker less than 48 hours later with proper sticker in the post.

Pretty slick I'd say. And a beautifully polite as the French often are.

After a change of plans I also applied for one couple of days ago, just over a day later email came with this.


Votre certificat sera expédié prochainement par courrier à l’adresse où le véhicule est enregistré.
Dans l’attente, cette facture vous permet de justifier de votre démarche et du classement de votre véhicule.

Seems fairly efficient, we'll see how long the actual sticker takes.

My experience is just the same as yours.

Excellent result.

What we need is someone to scan theirs so that we can print our own :lol-053::lol-053::lol-053:

I thought it was us Yorkshire folk that was tight? 😃

The total cost for this sticker is €4.80

Compare that with the cost of a drive in London 😡

Bearing in mind how long it took me to scan my V5 in such a way that fitted the French's size constraint (400kb), I think I'd rather pay the E4.80 than do any more scanning.

I just photographed my V5 with my phone then uploaded that as a jpg and it was accepted, before I did that I also had problems with scanning and keeping the size down, free pdf readers don't give you as many options as paid for ones

I assume you are getting the Crit’Air sticker because you plan to visit Paris Lyon or Grenoble which are the only cities affected by this rule. Greneral travelling around France does not require the sticker or have things moved on. Correct me if Im wrong

The sticker lasts for the lifetime of your vehicle so there's no harm getting it before you absolutely need it. I figured that if there was a significant lead time then the time I really did need it I'd be too late, sod's law being what it is. And at less than 5 euros I can't see it getting cheaper, only more expensive if anything.

We may be going to the Paris area depending on how things go, only rough plans at moment, but there are at least 22 other areas which may be affected over the next couple of years, also see here
