    5 vehicles in four countries. Hobby in Germany, Airstream Cutter in USA, MCI MH & OKA 4WD in Oz,
    Not all that obvious whether driving outside Paris without a sticker is illegal though.

    Sorry, could Google this but we're away and I don't have unlimited data or wi-fi, but just wondering if the vehicle already had an emissions sticker from another country, whether that would be enough for the French.

    I don't think this new law is aimed exclusively at the UK. I think French cars already have the restrictions and all non French vehicles are now being included. A little paranoia setting in here perhaps.

    I wonder how much pollution came from the making and transportation of all these stickers!

    Where to get a sticker?

    Where might I buy a sticker.

    I looked on Ebay and Amazon but nothing obvious.

    Thanks

    “Stickers for vehicles registered outside France can be ordered online from 1 February 2017.

    “The website, Service de délivrance des certificats qualité de l?air - Ministère de l'Environnement, de l'Energie et de la Mer which will be in various languages, will ask you to enter the necessary information from your vehicle registration certificate and attach a scanned copy of the certificate.”

    Cheers

    Thanks for that IanM but I expect that most of us will not have a level of French necessary to complete the forms

    Just read this bit -
    “While the stickers only cost around £3.20 to buy, the website is currently only in French. An English-language site is, however, due to be in operation as of 1 February.”

    How many of us will be affected by this ?
    We never drive into big towns,anywhere.

    After Brexit we Brits probably won't be allowed to drive our dangerous, non-standard RHD vehicles in the EU, anyway.

    We'll all be confined to Blighty and Ireland.
    To the pure in mind, all things are pure

    It sounds a bit like the Breathalyser Law of a few years ago that the French never imposed - keep your Euros in your pockets until it's certain you need a sticker.
