Certificates and attestations

Ask for your documents!

L’Aventure Peugeot Citroën DS has production records, homologation documents, commercial brochures etc… which allows us to issue documents “for pleasure” or to register a vehicle (except motorbikes) of the brands Peugeot, Citroën and Panhard.
All our documents contain: date of production, type of bodywork, finish (Pallas, Charleston, etc…) and confirmation if the numbers provided are original. Depending on the model and year there is more or less information.
Here are the main documents offered by L’Aventure:

  • The birth certificate (40€): this is a document “just for fun”, to know where and when your car was born
  • The date certificate for a classic vehicle (75€), which is used to obtain a vehicle registration document with the words “véhicule de collection” in France
  • The certificate of conformity (220€) which is used to obtain a “normal” vehicle registration document in France: suitable for registering an imported vehicle or for correcting a normal vehicle registration document (missing date of registration, number of seats etc)
  • The copy of the PV des Mines to proceed to an RTI with the DREAL
  • The scan of the invoice or production sheet of a vehicle (subject to availability)
  • The certificate of partial conformity (subject to availability)

Please note: Please choose between the certificate of conformity and the certificate of date of collection vehicle, we provide only one document allowing the registration of a vehicle.

Concerning the certificates of conformity for a motorhome, we are unable to supply them, please order them from the transformer (Pilot, Hymer etc). Thank you for your understanding.

Whatever the age of the vehicle and for obvious safety reasons, any transformation is subject to an individual approval from the department in charge of approvals in application of the provisions of article R.321-16 of the highway code. Of course, a vehicle with a so-called “normal” registration document must also be strictly in conformity with the original, otherwise in the event of a technical inspection, a roadside inspection or an accident followed by an expert report, legal proceedings may be initiated. Any modification must be approved and homologated by the DREAL (formerly the Mines Department) within the framework of an Acceptance by Title.
