Driving in France:

The Legal Requirements Checklist

(new post-Brexit changes highlighted in bold)

These are the basic items that you must have with you at all times whilst driving or riding a motorcycle in France:

  • A valid driving licence covering you for the vehicle you are driving/riding
  • An up-to-date passport (with at least six months left to run) for each occupant of the vehicle
  • Vehicle insurance documents, providing at least third-party cover
  • A Green Card (from your insurer) covering your vehicle and any trailer or caravan that you are towing
  • A valid MOT certificate if your vehicle is over 3 years old
  • V5 log book or a VE103 document for rented/hired vehicles
  • warning triangle (excl motorbikes)
  • Reflective helmet stickers for motorcycle riders²
  • It is illegal to drive with an important bulb gone. Having a spare bulb kit will help to avoid this
  • High Visibility Vest for each occupant of the vehicle
  • Your vehicle (and any trailer/caravan/boat you are towing) should be displaying a GB sticker
  • An Animal Health Certificate from your Vet for any pets you have with you
  • A valid visa if your stay will take you over 90 days in any 180-day period

² There is some suggestion that this only applies to helmets made or sold in France.  However, as this is first and foremost a safety feature - we still recommend that all motorcyclists have them.


Other Legal Requirements

(new post-Brexit changes highlighted in bold)

In addition, you should bear these in mind:

  • Drivers have to be at least 18 years of age
  • Moped and Motorcycle (up to 125cc) riders need to be at least 16 years of age
  • Your vehicle should be taxed in the UK
  • Your dipped headlamps must be adjusted so as not to dazzle oncoming traffic²
  • All occupants must wear a seat-belt at all times whilst in the vehicle
  • Children under 10 years of age should be in an approved and appropriate child restraint or booster seat (appropriate for their size and weight)³
  • You must not use your mobile telephone whilst driving, even through a hands-free system or Bluetooth headset
  • You must not use anything in or on your vehicle which warns you of the location of speed cameras⁴
  • You must not wear headsets or headphones whilst driving (except motorcycle helmets which have these integrated)
  • If you have a valid European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) card, this will cover you until it runs out.  The UK Government is planning to introduce a new Global Health Insurance Card, but in the meantime you should ensure you have sufficient travel insurance cover if you do not have a valid EHIC card.


² Some modern vehicles have a control to adjust the direction of the headlights, and some LED headlights do not need beam deflectors.  All other vehicles should be fitted with headlamp converters to block or redirect the beam that would otherwise have shone onto the offside of the road when driven in France.
