Is it me or are tyres more expensive in France than in the UK? They look like they are 50% more for the same make.

Does anyone know of a secure long term parking space/garage near Perpignan airport that I can buy/rent? Or failing that, has Perpignan Airport got a long term parking rate?

I was thinking; what a great job the french have done about their truly darwin-award-winning road death rate down to 5,000 in 2005 (annual uk road-death rate is 3,500 by comparison). then i met an interesting guy at an afal do; he's ex-motor trade and told me the french count road deaths up to 7-days after the event; in the uk it is six months after the event. so, just as i was thinking it was safe to get in the car again.......... do we need an INFOmation page to sort this one out!

I brought my trusty nissan micra down here six months ago, I've been told if I'm staying in the area I need to change my car to French plates. How do I go about this and do i really need to do it? tinks

When our English Driving licences expire (we will be soon far too old!) do we have to take additional tests in France? If we change to a French driving licence are the rules different?

We would like to re-register our old work horse of a Volvo. Can anyone tell me what documentation we will need? And where we go to to to organise the registration.

I am 81 and have held a clean driving licence for over 50 years.For the past fifteen years my wife and I have toured France in our motorcaravan for three months in the winter. I drive about 8,000 milles annually.We have been looking to buy a house in France this year, to settle there permanently. Although I am 81 I still hold a valid, clean, UK licence.Will I be able successfully to apply for a French driving licence, subject to passing a French medical examination, if we were to take up residence in France later this year, or would I be permanently excluded from obtaining a licence in France because of my age ?We are going to France next week for our usual tour and would like to know if we can proceed to buy a house there, or just give up our dream.Many thanks in anticipation of your advice.
