Driver's licence in France

Do you want to drive in France? The guide will help you find out more on driving requirements in the country, exchanging your national driver's licence or getting an international driver's licence.

Driving in France

The process of converting a driving licence can sometimes be a long and complicated one, but this is not the case in France. For many drivers, the process is simply administrative, but it is essential that you request the change within a year of your arrival in France. Otherwise, you will be required to go through the long and excruciating process of obtaining a fresh French licence. If you do not already have a driver's licence, you will have no other option than to sit for the theoretical tests and take driving lessons.
