What does the process look like?
Here’s a step by step breakdown
We send you a quote
If you’re eligible for a French driving licence we’ll send you a quote.
Once we received your deposit, we’ll ask you for the documents we need and check their validity.
Submitting the application
We submit your application to the relevant authorities online and provide you with proof of submission.
Processing your application will take around 7 months. Once validated, you will receive a document that will allow you to drive in France whilst your French driving licence is being created.
Receiving your French driving licence
You will be asked to submit your original driving licence. In exchange, you will receive your new French driving licence by post.
