Registering your car in France

A 72 year old British man tries to register his old second car in Carcassonne after having changed the registration of his other car to a French one some 9 months ago without any problem.. He is sent on a wild goose chase for a tax certificate in respect of VAT paid on the purchase of his second hand car in England before finally the Carte Grise was handed over, but what was the balance? One extra and totally unnecessary return journey from his home to Carcassonne - 150 kms: one return journey Carcassonne to Limoux and back - 50 kms: a waste of 6 hours of his time: wear and tear on the car and a considerable expenditure of nervous energy consumed in countering the ridiculous arguments of those at the Carcassonne Préfecture and the Cité Administrative.

Registering your caravan in France?

How do I register my British caravan in France? Where can I get a manufacturer's plate for my caravan? Does my fog light have to be on the other side? What about UK electrical fittings? Where do I obtain a Certificate of Conformity for a Caravan? How much does it cost?
