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 What sort of service is that?I also believe that the 98 & 99 buses into town have been withdrawn.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
We are over in Nice for the month of August and are looking for a car parking space near Gambetta. We understand you can rent a spot in a municipal car park. What we would like to know is are you allowed come and go as you please with this type of rental. Also any recommendations of good parking spots near Gambetta would be greatly appreciated.
Hello Does anyone drive daily from Nice to Monaco? I am trying to find alternatives to get to work as the trains are not always very reliable - doesnt need to be for every day of the week but maybe to occasionally get a lift with someone and I would be happy to contribute with petrol money!!Olivia :)
In the UK there are loads of "ding doctors" that come to you in an equipped van and repair dents and scrapes to your car on the driveway. They are also really good value starting at around £50 and going up depending on the repair needed. My Clio here in France I was quoted €1,500 to repair 2 dents and spray the panels effected ! €1,500 I would expect a full respray! All I need is a ding DR !! Does anyone know of one? Thanks
