I know this should probably be in the driving section but I just wondered if anyone knew whether you have to pay to change the address on a carte grise. I have looked on The Prefecture website but am still not sure of the answer.Can anyone help?

I was curious to know if non EU citizens are able to obtain a french drivers licence? Does one need to show a carte de sejour or is it simply a case of showing your passport,passing the test and paying your way? Any advice much appreciated.Thanks in advance.

There was a topic posted a while ago about this and somebody had recommended a great insurance company in Calais. I cannot find this posting anymore - so if anybody knows of this could you please enlighten us. We drive back to the UK quite regularly and are not looking to change the UK plates, but do need insurance over here. Any recommendations?

Does anyone know anything about Golf gearboxes?  I've now lost reverse, 1st and 2nd.  Which makes driving mighty hard!  Someone told me that it might not be necessary to replace the whole box but since I know less about cars than Tony Blair does about politics I could use some input.  I thank you.

Hi, I got a warning message on my dash that the brake lights weren't working so I checked last night.. only the high level brake light was working. SO I changed both brake light bulbs for new ones. Now the brake lights work, but when I put the brakes on the dashboard illuminates as if I've got the headlights on (when I haven't), and if I've got the headlights on (or even just the sidelights), the brake lights are permanently on! Any ideas what the problem might be, or does anyone know an english speaking mechanic near Juan les Pins that I can try? Thanks Simon.
