Five years ago when I imported my car, the Greek registration office refused to give me the form as i did not have a certificate of conformity although I had all the nescessary paperwork from the Greek embassy in London. I had a problem obtaining a copy from my car dealer and nearly gave up.(but finaly obtained it and was then Greek registered). If the system was made simpler to just register the car and pay the tax and insurance perhaps SOME of the people would then be legal.
It's not just ex-pats who are illegal here. The gypsies are well known by the police for lack of insurance etc. There are also many Greeks who do not even have a driving license and when they get stopped are fined for having no license but never asked to produce it at a later date. There are many factors that need to be addressed here by everyone.

This is what I am saying. It is an offence and they do get fined, but as the police never ask them to produce it at a later date (like in the UK) the police never discover that they have no license.
