Principle and conditions
When moving abroad, any holder of a Monegasque registration certificate must inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office when he or she ceases to reside in the Principality, as registration in the Principality of Monaco will no longer be valid.
Once the move has been registered, the procedure varies, depending on the country of destination of the vehicle:
- For export to France, a a certificate to obtain the “carte grise” car registration document in France (CPOCG) may be requested
- For export abroad (outside France), a certificate for export may be requested
The two certificates, which are considered as title clearance, certify that no registration of a pledge or opposition to the sale has been recorded.
A temporary registration with the issue of a provisional registration certificate and "WW" sticker plates for a sale in France or "WW2" for a sale abroad (outside France) may be requested. The provisional "WW" registration enables the vehicle to be driven in the Principality of Monaco and in France for a period of one month and the provisional registration "WW2" enables it to be driven in the Principality of Monaco and abroad for a period of two months.
The owner may request a copy of the European certificate of conformity (COC) that may be required for registering the vehicle abroad, as long as this document was provided in the vehicle registration file in the Principality. To request it, please refer to the procedure : "How to request a copy of a constituent document of a file ".
The owner may also request an apostille of the certificate for export abroad, which is required for the registration of the vehicle in certain foreign countries, such as Italy. To request it, please refer to the procedure: "How to request an apostille of an export certificate ".
