Can I Legally Drive In France?

0

Since you are 19 you can drive your car or that of your parents across and drive in France. 18 is the legal age in France.You do not need a different licence. Hiring a car is a different matter altogether and depends on hire companies, but 25 is the usual age they demand to lend younger drivers a car. However, if driving your own car, you must inform your insurance company, especially if you only have third party insurance. You should insure yourself adequately with a company such as Green Flag in case you break down or have an accident whilst you are abroad so that you are totally covered and are not stranded if either of these things happen. This provides instant and expert help which is particularly important if an accident is caused by you. You should also look up common driving regulations in France and especially those about priority. Be very careful as it is easy to be distracted when you have friends in the car.
