Question on French usage in France

In the context of "vehicles", what is a "carte verte"? I know a carte grise is the registration papers/licence, but can't find out what the green one is. :)

Edit: Thank you, answer found: it is the insurance docs to be kept in the car (here in Ontario, one might refer to the "pinks" in the same way, as our insurance details are printed on pink papers).
