UK car plates to French?

One of our cars, a left hand drive, that we recently purchased in the UK, is still currently on GB plates.  The car has been correctly exported from the UK and is insured in France. Naturally, we had intended to get the transfer or "rematriculation" to French plates in due course.

Having just recived a letter from our insurers, this has now gone up the priority list somewhat! - In short, the insurers have stated that following recent pressure from the French government, they will refuse to insure any vehicles, at renewal of the policy, that are not on French plates.

A fair cop guv!  and rightly so - for our useful guide on how to go about this click here: http://www.dordognepropertyagency.com/links/info.aspx
