MARIGOT: As of Monday, August 2nd, the territorial police and the national gendarmerie will pay special attention to the compliance of vehicles with the registration requirements, the Collectivité announced.
Special attention will be paid to all motor vehicles (2, 3 and 4 wheels) currently registered in mainland France or in an overseas department.
The Collectivité de Saint-Martin recalls that it is responsible for the application of the provisions relating to articles R322-1 to R322-7 of the highway code, transcribed in a deliberation of the territorial council of Saint Martin dated March 25, 2010.
These provisions provide in particular that “any owner of a vehicle subject to registration must, within one month of the change of residence, send a declaration to the Collectivité de Saint Martin”. In case of infringement, a 4th class criminal fine can be drawn up (135 euros).
The Collectivité invites the vehicle owners to go to the service of the registration certificates (ex service of the grey cards, offices located in front of the hotel of the Collectivité) in order to proceed to an administrative regularization.
If the file is compliant, a provisional registration certificate (CPI) will be issued. It will inform of the new Saint Martinian registration. This will authorize the owner of the vehicle to have the license plates installed by a professional (as a reminder, the plates must be riveted and not screwed).
The list of parts required for this registration is available on the website of the Collectivité
It will be possible to be informed of the availability of the new registration certificate by means of an SMS or on the website of the Collectivité at the following address: http://www.com-saint-martin.fr/cartes-grises
