Is it possible to insure a scooter for the short-term? I want to use one I've picked up cheaply for a few week, before my car arrives from the UK.I don't want to insure it for a year. Can I just get a month's worth of third party insurance?Thanks for the advice.

I live in the UK but have apartment in Juan les Pins.  I have purchased a Yamaha motorbike but I intend on riding it home.  I obviously need insurance but didn't realise that if the bike is not registered with the DVLA then insurance companies will not insure it.  Does anyone recommend and French insurance companies, bearing in mind I only require 1 week insurance max.

Hi Folks, I am hoping someone might have experience of this and be able to educate me. I have completed a Pré-demande de changement de titulaire (Pre-application for change of ownership) online at the https://siv.interieur.gouv.fr website.What I am wondering is, what do I do next, do I still have to complete the three page 'DÉCLARATION DE CESSION D’UN VÉHICULE' ?Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello. I'm looking to get a french driver's license. I have one already from California, USA... but as I've been here longer than 1 year, I need to get one that's valid in France. Does anyone have any suggestions about schools? Is there a way to get the license without going through a driving program (I already know how to operate a vehicle). Does anyone know if there's an english-speaking school or exam possible? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Just found out that since yesterday, you can now use your training hours (that you accumulate when you are an employee in France) to pay for your driving licence There is some info herehttp://blogs.angloinfo.com/life-on-the-french-riviera/2017/03/16/how-to-finance-your-driving-test-with-training-hours/

I'm an American expat living in the Saint Raphaël/Fréjus area and would like some tips on exchanging and testing for the French driving license. I happen to be from one of those states that does not have an reciprocal agreement, so this mean that I have to pass the French Code. No problem with that, but does this mean that I have to take the whole 20 hour driving course? The Marie says "not really", but the local driving schools don't seem to know what to do with me. Has anyone in the area gone through this before? Any suggestions?

 Hello! I am desperately looking for a driving school in Nice or around (also possible nearby Valbonne) where they speak English. My level of French is not good enough to understand such things as road traffic regulations etc. Does anyone have any idea where I can get my license studying in English? In fact at least the theory in English since I think I will be able to tackle with French drivig instructor.  Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Best regards, Yana Desseaux.
