Hi all, We have a large van for our business, but are struggling to find parking for it (it's a VW Crafter which is too high for all the standard garages in the city centre and would take up about 2 standard parking spaces lengthwise) - I've had a look but can't find anywhere that seems to offer parking for larger vehicles. I imagine most business owners in Nice have some sort of utility vehicle; could anyone point me in the direction of somewhere to safety park it? Much appreciated.

I've decided to get a French Driving Licence. I've checked the Prefecture online and according to them I need  1. a piece of identity -photocopy recto verso 2   UK driving licence -photocopy recto verso 3   Certificate of GB driving licence details (which must be translated into French by a traducteur          assermenté) obtained from the DVLA in UK. 4 Passport photos  . Now this is my QUESTION . I see nowhere on the form that Photos are required and yet to my knowledge French driving licences carry a photo of the holder. I have tried to obtain confirmation of this from the Police Municipale and the Marie de Nice but no one could confirm . The Prefecture are virtually impossible to join on the phone or by mail.  Can anyone who has converted their UK licence for a French licence advise please ? Villerica

I live permanently in Nice only returning to the UK for 3 weeks in the summer. I have an old green paper driving licence that has my last UK address on it more than 20 years ago. I want to change this paper licence for the photocard driving licence. The paper licences will soon be invalid. I have obtained an application form which states that to apply I must be "normally resident in the UK for more 185 days" this is not the case although I have a valid GB driving licence that I use every year to rent cars in the UK. I suppose my question might be can I have a new GB photocard licence with a French address on it ? Thomastraherne

The Auto Bleues were unveiled yesterday, and they're even better than expected! Not only do you not need a French drivers license, but there is no residency or French bank account requirement either, so even tourists can drive them. The official site is still only in French, but here is a quick summary of everything you want to know about these great little electric share cars. www.bestofniceblog.com/2011/04/10/auto-bleue-share-cars-in-nice-france/ Allison

Does anyone know a garage that will process a  replacement Certificat D'Immatriculation (Carte Grise) for me as I have lost the original (although I do have a photo copy) and also put my car through for an overdue Contrôle Tecnique. The car is in Villefranche area. Many thanks in anticipation. Ziggs.
