Re: Exchange UK driving licence

Do you need to get a notaire to fill in the legal bit at the bottom or can anyone you know complete it ? Just don’t want to send ot off and face more delays for incorrect completion.

Re: Exchange UK driving licence

Replying to the question about whether a medical is required and the length of validity - sorry I don't know about any notaire needed, I didn't need one!

It seems not - my French licence is valid from 2018 to 2033 so it's 15 years.
No medical required as I didn't have any need of the 7.5 tonne category - there is now no need for a medical to tow a caravan.
Mine has categories AM/A1/A2/A/B1/B/BE

Depending on which way the Brexit monkey jumps, you may need to raise your game based on this diktat from the interior ministry:-

Re: Exchange UK driving licence

I can ride a bike.

Kids can walk to School.

Lidl is 5 mins away by foot.

The Saab don't start.

I don't like driving anyway.

I will take my chances. LOL

Re: Exchange UK driving licence

They would fail me for being able to drive safely.

Talking of which, we sold our little VW UP in the summer to a newly qualified driver...18 year old girl.

I let her take the car out for a test drive with me as the passenger.

I can't believe I am still here to tell that story.

GOD ALMIGHTY.....that is all I can say.

I am betting that car longer exists.

Claire37 .....

Not sure that you’re getting the answer you were seeking !!!

It would help me (in order not to have to trawl through the form(s)) if you would specify which form you’re asking about ?
