How to regularise a vehicle that has been deregistered following a failure to complete a technical visit
Service des Titres de Circulation

Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office :

Fax : (+377) 98 98 40 36
Opening Hours : from 9.30am to 5.00pm from Monday to Friday
All vehicle registrations are limited and expire on the date that the statutory technical inspection is due. This date is noted on the registration certificate and, where appropriate, on the most recent technical inspection or follow-up technical inspection report. If the technical inspection is successfully passed by the due date, the vehicle’s registration period will be extended.
In the event that a technical inspection is not passed by the due date, or if the vehicle still has faults following a second follow-up visit, the vehicle is deregistered from the number plate database.
This means that the car may no longer be driven and that the registration certificate and licence plates must be returned to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office.
In order to be able to drive a deregistered vehicle you will need to regularise it first.
There is a fee associated with this service - Please see STC - Tarifs 2020 en vigueur
