I just attempted to obtain a Crit' Air sticker for France.

However, when I enter details and specifically the 'date of first registration' details, this is what appears.......

"Your vehicle is too old and does not meet the criteria for the award of an air quality certificate (it therefore emits too many pollutants). We cannot respond to your request."

I have a 'Foster & Day' 2.3 Mercedes diesel motorhome first registered in August 1990.

Will this mean that I am exempt (he said fancifully) or that I am going to get fines wherever I go?

Unfortunately you will get fined if you go into emission zones. Stay away from the big towns and in most cases you will be OK.

Is that correct as only a few emissions zones are permanently active (Paris, Rouen, Grenoble etc.) the others are only active when promulgated so because of high pollution.

I cannot see why one would be fined for not having a Crit'Air sticker if the zone were not promulgated as active.

No, not at all. You're just not allowed in all the zones which require a crit'air sticker.
Mine is 1991.
You will have to make your own route with your own homemade map specifying which road or towns you're not allowed on.

Just bought mine online this morning, critair 2, fairly straightforward once I’d worked out how to convert a photo to pdf! Not sure we will need it for our month in June, but just in case.

I am driving to South of Lille on motorway in 2 weeks, which goes "underneath" Lille. Lille requires a crit air sticker but would I need one if driving around Lille? Same goes for any town/city🤔🤔🤔

Depends where the limits are, but usually they aren’t outside of the cities (Rouen is a complicated story). Check your SatNav or Google or Waze - they should indicate which roads go through ‘environmental zones’
