Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
After two days of trawling through the phone book, I have found a MOT garage that will carry out a contrôle technique without a certificat de conformité.
The 2CV is booked in for tomorrow… but first I must repair the rear view mirror… it has just fallen off!.
Well, it transpires after much searching that I can get a certificat de conformité on the internet. It is more expensive, but at least I won’t have to provide reams of documents which probably won’t be acceptable (am I getting a little jaded with French bureaucracy?).
Another doubt in my mind: will a certificat de conformité issued by a third party, ie, not Citroën, be accepted by the préfecture (government offices) when I go and ask for the carte grise (vehicle registration documents)?.
First things first… mend the rear view mirror…
