Renewing Controlle Technique

Post by Owens88 » Sun 18 Mar 2018 23:55

Hi
Sorry for this as I usually try and solve things with my own searching.

I need to renew my CT before 2nd Jun, I think as that is what the sticker on the windscreen says. However I cannot find explicit instructions as to 'how long before?' .
It is truly a holiday car ( and I may have been too honest in re-registering my British car but I have done) and is in 'mode garage' most of its life.

I was wondering if I could have it re-tested end April or early May?

Cheers
John

You can ask for a CT at any time. If I were you I'd do it asap before tougher tests are introduced in May.

French CT valid from date of test - unlike U.K. where you can have an M.O.T. in advance without losing weeks of M.O.T.

Something to consider.

But an investment for the future if the new expiry date is also going to be more convenientl in subsequent years?

Thanks all. I was guilty of expecting a period wherein the original date could be preserved, as in the UK.

However if we lose a month out of 24 for our own convenience so be it.
