Going to France on your Bike?

Post  Barry Sexton on Sat 23 Mar 2013 - 19:07

I am not entirely sure how reliable this information is, but it is has been posted on the UK Bikers in France website and may be of interest to those riding their bikes to France. Incidentally a warning triangle is not required for motorbikes.

Biking In France – An update – also read associated links with this article for biking law information within France.

Interesting link.

I know for sure that when it comes to penalty points, these cant be put onto your UK licence.

I have had this confirmed by the DVLC, when i contacted them about a parking fine I picked up in Italy last year where the summons stated a 101 Euro fine ( yes 101 Euros) and 2 penalty points.

Maybe somone should try and get it clarified by the guys in France who are organising this years gathering.

Having read this yesterday I emailed Ride magazines Kev Raymond who lives in France and asked the question the following is his reply :-

The helmet stickers law has been in force here for years but I've never
heard of any temporary visitor falling foul of it – I've been living
here on and off for 20 years and I only heard about it recently!

Breathalisers - technically you still have to carry one, but they've
recently announced they won't actually be fining anyone for not carrying
one. So if you've got one then bring it, if you haven't I really
wouldn't worry.

What you do need to worry about is the Priorité à Droite rule, which
catches holidaymaking Brits out on a regular basis. There's a reasonable
explanation here:

Nice one Phil.

Nothing better than getting a view from the bloke on the ground.

That priority a Droite, is a real pain ( no not bread).

First read about this back in 1982 when I first ventured over there on my trusty CX.

One day they will repeal this outdated law.

Regards.
