car number plate needed

Post by sue and paul » Sun 21 Aug 2016 21:27

We have been contacted by friends who are camping near Argelès. their UK rear number plate has fallen off their car on the way down through France. Who knows where the nearest supplier of a number plate (of sorts) might be. Fairly urgent!

When we changed from UK to Frech number plates we got the new ones in Perps, just opposite the offices where we took the paperwork. Just behind the Castille. Go through the Castille facing the old town. In an alleyway just on the right, between a restaurant and a shop.

The cobbler in the Intermarche foyer at Le Boulou did them but don't know if he has returned since the fire.

final report.....none of the places we found ... Auto Plus, Argelès; Point P Argelès; Peugeot main dealer, Argelès ... could legally supply a number plate to a UK-reg vehicle. We found our own solution which should be OK at least while they are in France

Thanks for replies and help.

Incidentally, the cordonnier at Le Boulou Intermarché is no longer there. There is one at the Intermarché in Mas Guerido
