Driving in France - Licence and Insurance

Tuesday 06 July 2021

The UK and French governments have reached agreement on the rules for holders of a UK driving licence, and the European Commission has also removed the requirement for UK drivers to hold a Green Card.

You can read more in our guide to Applying for a French Driving Licence.
