Driving in France

Few Driving Laws In France

Driving is done on the right.
  • Seat belts are compulsory; all passengers must wear seat belts.
  • The blood/alcohol limit in France is 50mg. If you are caught over this limit you could face fines of up to 30,000FF and two years in jail. Your license can also be taken off you immediately.
  • Bus lanes are reserved exclusively for buses, taxis and bicycles.
  • You are also required to carry the vehicle's registration document, and the current insurance certificate (a green card is not mandatory but remains internationally recognized and helpful). Also, a nationally approved plate or sticker is required. Car rental agencies will provide their customers with all these necessary documents.
  • If the vehicle you are driving is borrowed, in addition to all the above, a letter of authorization from the owner is necessary.

    Driving Tips In France
    Be aware that French drivers drive more aggressively and exceed speed limits. Be prepared to drive more defensively. Rush hour in Paris and major towns are situated around hours of going to and from work (7:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m). Fridays can be more congested due to people leaving the city. Pay attention to the road as the lane marking and road signs are not as clear as in North America. Are you travelling with children? Most motorway service stations have 'baby corners' with changing facilities and high chairs.

    Road Tips for France
    Always carry your driving licence, vehicle registration document (V5), and certificate of motor insurance. If your licence does not incorporate a photograph ensure you carry your passport to validate the licence. If the vehicle is not registered in your name, carry a letter from the registered owner giving you permission to drive.
