Air Quality Certificate France


PCGB Member
We are off to Angouleme next week in our ‘69 911S. I have checked the eligibility for an AQC from the French authorities web site and the car is not eligible for a certificate (AQC). Upon further email exchanges the French authorities have responded advising to contact the town hall of ‘your municipality in order to know the traffic directives put in place’!
Anyone of this forum any experience of driving a vehicle over 40 years old in France?
I drove my '73 911S to Le Mans Classic this year without a Crit-air sticker and drove through Rouen and Le Mans and other towns and villages and did not encounter any problems at all. Last September drove the 1964 356C through Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and France again without any Umwelt or Crit-Air screen stickers. Again no problems.
I was led to understand that the cars are exempt from the various environmental air pollution rules or regulations.
Enjoy your drive and don't get caught for speeding (as-if)
