Does anyone know if they accept French Insurance Company No Claims Discount proof when buying in the UK again and continuing to drive.  Not had UK Insurance other than hire cars for 7 years now.  Many thanks

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

Around a month ago I saw an advert from someone saying he'd pick up your scrap cars and do the paperwork. Now, I can't find it. Can anyone help? Please preferably e-mail: mgpost37@yahoo.com or phone 0545 90 97 23.

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.
