I applied for a crit-air certificate on 1st February uploaded the docs etc but have received no confirmation email - nor an email saying I got something wrong. However they have charged my credit card the 4.80 Euros! Can't wait to explain that to the Gendarmerie. Can I ask if anyone has received their certificate yet??

Remember you are dealings with French civil servants. Took us 10 months to get a car registered all because the previous owner ( car was in his name) went and died.

Thanks - I suspect I must have made a mistake with the certificate - or possibly I was too eager trying it on day 1. I have just re-applied and the payment pages do appear slightly different - and this time I received a prompt confirmation email - with the transaction number - which I can wave at the gendarmes if needed. Perhaps we'll need to carry gas masks soon along with breathalysers etc.

Have just recieved my Invoice and Certificate - 30 days exactly and the Disc is in the post.

Typical French - have to be different. In Germany the higher the number the higher the Euro Classification, Euro 5 + you get a disc with 4 on it.
In France the higher the Euro Classification so Euro 5 and you get a disc with 2 on it.

Although I have emailed for clarification as it appears that Post 2011 Euro 5/6 should have a 1

Why haven't they got an EU wide scheme then?
And why not just display the euro values it is?

Bonkers!

Cali now sold
Sorry to ask , but for the time beeing this is not a working law i belive ?
And it will only be in the city of Paris? So far , i know others will follow .

So no need to get it not that urgent.
I visit France a few times a year but not at all planning to drive in to Paris so why should i buy this vignette?

Not about the few € it costs just don't feel the need to buy it yet as it imo. useless for the time being.

Maybe all we need is a Euro 6(5) sticker on the windscreen and be done with it... I would be surprised if the enforcers didn't think its a valid sticker from somewhere.
