Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@jonathancarty, I took a photo of mine with my regular phone, and then resized it until it was under the size (in Kb) that they needed. I did just the pages @altis mentions.

Mine took 1-2 weeks at most.

@sparklies,

Thanks, I scanned in page 2 of the V5 and that seemed to be fine. Came out with a 2 which I though was quite low for my diesel 8 seater Very Happy Very Happy

Apologies if the answer is buried in this thread, however it looks to me like my normal route will take me through the Lyon and Chambery zones.

Does the certificate cover all areas or is there a separate one for each area?

Hire cars in Geneva (both French and Swiss) dont have them - presumably they are exempt?
Or is this going down the must have a breathalyser path? - The French hire car didn't even have a Hi Vis gilet!

@Ford, An earlier post says that hire cars will be exempt, and if you got a fine the rental company will pay for it.

@Boris, that’s obviously the wrong number for grams of CO2 per km - it should be in the region of 100. Look further up your V5.

They used to have a help page that told you which fields to use but, unhelpfully, that seems to have disappeared now.

I reduced it to 100dpi, converted to greyscale, tweaked the curves to obliterate the 'print through' from the other side and then saved it as a PNG.

Ok, took photo and reduced that. Can't find Euro category on V5 (is 2010 reg and don't think it was included then) so selected the I can't find it option.

All seems to have gone through ok

The Euro Category, the CO2 emissions and the commercial description are all optional fields (they don't have an * next to them). They will work it out from the info on the V5.

Yes the older V5's don't have the euro number, and nor did my owners manual or any of the engine or vehicle data stickers stuck on the car in various places. But it's an optional field on the form so you can leave it blank.

I also had a problem entering the CO2 data from my V5 as the form kept returning an error until I realised I had mistakenly picked up data from the CO/km field, instead of the CO2/km.

For info but don't rely on this - walked through the carpark at the funicular at BSM looking to see how many cars had stickers - only saw 1 in the 30 card I passed.

Don’t want to alarm you Boris but a work colleague of mine applied for hers last Tues and it arrived on Monday. So would have thought yours would be here by now. Did you get the email confirmation?

I applied Feb 1st, got the email confirmation the next day after applying with a document to prove I had applied - so safe for half term!

However the sticker still hasn't arrived and according to them it was sent by courier on Feb 8th.

Perhaps there is a black market going on for these?! Puzzled

The sticker has your registration on it, someone else would need to clone your numberplates too for it to be any use to them.
