To be honest, Gallus, I'm not sure that what the OP is asking for is possible.

How long you can operate a UK registered vehicle on UK insurance is more a question for your insurer. The best site I know of for a succinct overview of vehicle registration and insurance information is Service Public here: Transports - Service-public.fr but it's all in French.

And I'm not at all certain about the legality of putting a vehicle in 6/8 names in France. To register a vehicle in "collective" like that, I suspect you would need to form a proper French company or association - and that complicates things considerably from both an insurance and an ownership perspective.

Is it even possible to register a vehicle in the UK in multiple names like that?
Cheers,
Bev

My own insurer gave me 3 months.

It isn't - not as individuals.

<<<Is it even possible to register a vehicle in the UK in multiple names like that?>>>

No - although insuring it for multiple specific named drivers is probably easier in France than the UK.
