I would be very grateful if any members could recommend a driving instructor who could help me get used to driving on French roads. I have passed my driving test in the UK very recently and will be living in Poitou-Charentes. I will be near Sauze-Vaussais and Chef-Boutonne and I speak French. Thank you
Hi / Bonjour,Can anyone advise me if there is a French equivalent to https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/ where I can enter the registration code of a French vehicle and instantly receive details such as the registration and manufacture dates, when the vehicle's tax & MOT expired etc?Thank you / Merci!Richard
Has anyone got a train from this station and left their car until they return some days later. I have seen cars left in the car park but wondered if anyone does this regularly. I normally take a friend to the Station and collect but will be away so looking for an alternative or does anyone know of a reasonable taxi service from Charroux please.
There have been a few discussions re. problems with the ANTS website.I've just noticed the following article which shows how bad (chaotic) theprocess is; so don't worry too much if you're caught up in it - so are millions of others!https://actu.orange.fr/france/bug-des-cartes-grises-l-etat-condamne-a-indemniser-des-automobilistes-magic-CNT0000012ybNK.html

I have an old 3.2 S Boxter and am thinking of bringing it to France. I know it will need re registering and wondered how I can find out the cost. Someone has told me that you now have to pay an import duty depending on age, emissions and engine size, they paid 2,500 euro for a Dacia !! Any advice appreciated.
Has anyone come across this problem I passed my driving test in 1967/8 but my English driving licence says it starts from 1977 , I now have a French licence and was having a medical every 2 years so I can drive a motorhome larger than 3.5 but if I can prove I passed my test before 1975 I would keep my rights to this. I have been in touch with DVLA they have no records before 1977 as that was when they took over the licensing. Can anyone suggest what to do.
I am thinking of buying a dirt bike (complete of roader), i am going to look at one on tuesday 01.05.18. Should it have a carte gris.Also i am thinking of joining a local club, which goes on the roads between courses, which makes me think does the club have some kind of insurance cover for these events/weekend trips?Many thanks for any info you may be able to give.
