The green car insurance sticker will soon be a distant memory. The insurers, who are asking for its abolition, have finally obtained the green light from Bercy. The project plans to switch to dematerialized reading.
It’s a small revolution in the world of auto insurance. After the announcement of the implementation of an anti-inflation pack during a joint conference of the Minister of the Economy and the President of the French Insurance Federation, as L’Indépendant explained on Tuesday, Bruno The Mayor said he was also working on the removal of the famous green sticker. It is a question of acceding to a request made for a long time by the insurers. The profession, for its part, has undertaken to limit the increase in premiums to inflation.
A dematerialized system
“We are working, with the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin, on the removal of this small green sticker that you have to stick behind your windshield and which shows that you are well insured so that it is dematerialized, declared the Minister for Finances after meeting with insurers. It is a shock of simplification for our compatriots and at the same time it is a cost which is also reduced”he said as reported by Les Echos.

Concretely, the information will be available from the vehicle’s license plate in connection with the file of insured vehicles (FAV). The police will then have access to all the information when reading the plate.
This simplification would be a significant element in lowering the costs of insurers, indicates Le Parisien. According to the Federation of Insurance, this would avoid printing costs of around 50 million documents per year.
No timetable was given on the implementation of the device.
