I have driven through France in my 19 year old Fiat Ducato Autotrail 2 berth motorhome.  I'm looking to buy a property here so that I can be nearer to my son and his family.  I would like to re register my motor over here but whenever I mention it to anyone they recoil in fear as if I'm asking for the impossible.  Am I asking for the impossible?  Is it really so difficult?  I'm sure people have done it before so any tips or information would be most welcome.Thank youTim Strickland

I OWN A FRENCH REGISTERED 2012 LEFT HAD DRIVE DACIA LOGAN WHICH IS KEPT AT MY FRENCH VILLA IN GRIMAUD - AND USED SEVERAL TIMES A YEAR TO TRAVEL TO AND FROM TO ENGLAND AND BACK.  IT IS ALWAYS FULLY COMP INSURED AND HAS A VALID CURRENT CONTROL TECHNIQUE WHICH EXPIRES AT THE END OF OCTOBER 20I9. IF I KEEP IT OFF ROAD UNTIL NEXT FEBRUARY (MY NEXT BUT ONE PLANNED TRIP DOWN TO GRIMAUD - SO IT WILL BE INSURED OFF ROAD AND GARAGED), CAN I LAWFULLY DRIVE IT NEXT FEBRUARY  TO A CONTROL TECHNIQUE  STATION FOR TESTING WHEN ITS C T CERT HAS EXPIRED - BUT IT WILL BE INSURED ?  IS IT LIKE AN ENGLISH MOT WHEN IT IS LEGAL TO DO SO (IN ENGLAND) PROVIDED I HAVE MADE A PRIOR MOT APPOINTMENT AND GO STRAIGHT THERE ? I AM DRIVING THIS DACIA BACK TO FRANCE FROM  ENGLAND SHORTLY FOR A FEW WEEKS BUT INTEND TO LEAVE IT AT MY VILLA AND FLY BACK.

I've just downloaded the timetable for the new tram service (Line 2) from Nice airport to the tram stop at Jean Medecin.Apart from Fridays & Saturdays they don't seem to run after 8 pm. What sort of service is that?I also believe that the 98 & 99 buses into town have been withdrawn. Am I correct?

HiEach year for the last few years I have visited Menton in October and picked up a hire car from Nice airport after of course handing over an unlimited amount of cash for additional insurance etc etc so much so that I am considering just e,paying my wallet of all cash and credit cards so that the staff can help themselves.Then I had a thought, maybe there is a reputable car hire provider in Menton itself where I can pay only a previously quoted price but who would know of a place?Or am I just fooling myself?Any ideas?ian
