The certificate of administrative status can take 2 forms depending on whether the vehicle is "pledged" or opposed or not.

Simple Certificate
  • It is issued when nothing prevents the sale of the vehicle.
  • The certificate that the seller delivers to the purchaser at the time of the transaction must date less than 15 days .
  • The following statement is included: The administrative situation of the vehicle does not reveal any peculiarity: absence of pledge and opposition .
Detailed Certificate
  • This certificate is issued to the holder of the registration card when the vehicle is pledged or if there is an objection to the transfer of the registration certificate.
  • You will generally not be able to sell your vehicle until this objection is lifted.
  • The registration card will be blocked and will not be issued if the administrative situation of the vehicle is not regularized.

A buyer who has nevertheless concluded the sale may turn against the seller in an attempt to obtain from him the lifting of the pledge.

Need for the Document[edit]

The certificate of administrative status (or certificate of non-pledge) is a document to know if nothing prevents the sale of the vehicle.

The transfer of the registration card can thus be done and the vehicle can be registered in the name of the new owner. This certificate is issued only for a motor vehicle registered in France.

The certificate of administrative status indicates whether there is an impediment to the transfer of the registration card or if the vehicle is pledged.

A vehicle is pledged if it has been purchased with a lease and the lease is not paid.

If an opposition procedure is initiated, the holder of the registration card can not sell his vehicle. This is the case in particular:

  • If he has been injured and is considered dangerous
  • If it is declared stolen,
  • If the owner has not paid any fines.
