Hey all,

Just a quick hello, purchased my first Note on Sunday 09th June, a March 2006 1.6 SVE.
Amazed by the amount of space for a small car and love all the clever storage bits and pieces, also drives much better than I expected it too! Planning a trip to France in October with wife, 2 kids plus luggage!

Welcome to the forum Andy.
Don't forget if you have satnav to disable any speed camera warnings or risk an 'on the spot' ‚¬1000 fine from the lovely gendarmerie.

And don't forget to carry
Spare bulbs
Warning triangle
High-viz jacket or tabard
Two disposable breathalysers


And fit your beam converters before you drive on French roads.

But above all - enjoy driving in France - the only hard bit is coming back to the UK
Too true. Vast stretches of empty roads, great places for families to stop and eat, cheap accommodation.

Nothing going for it really

Take 3 or 4, I had a friend had only 2 breathalysers got stopped, 5km down the road the same "£$%%$ pulled him again

by then he had 1 left and the £$%^^ made him use that the a one, then gave him a on thespot fine of 100 euro

iirc you also need florescent vests for all people in the car

French law has changed from January 2013 :-



January 2013 - the French government announced that
the implementation of the sanction for drivers not carrying a
breathalyser ""“ a fine of ‚¬11 ""“ has been postponed indefinitely.


So theoretically you are still required to carry a self-test
breathalyser when driving in France but there is no current legislation
demanding a fine for non-compliance.


The original official announcement stated that one unused, certified
breathalyser must be produced showing the French certification mark NF.
Carrying two single-use breathalysers will ensure that if one is used or
damaged, you will still have a spare to produce. The breathalyser
produced has to be in date - single-use breathalysers normally have a
validity of twelve months.

I'm not surprised as, allegedly, the government minister who 'championed' this law also, purely by coincidence no doubt, owned a breathalyser production company.
