Being over 60 and towing a caravan, I am required to renew my permis à conduire every two years with a medical. In the good old inefficient days, a new paper license was issued by the Perfecture in two days. With the new efficient plastic card system, it now takes 6 weeks at least, from handing in the old license. In the meantime, all I have to show the world, is a tatty carbon copy of the application form, issued and signed by the examining Doctor, with my physog stapled to it.
Question is, does anyone know whether this apology for a driving license has any validity in the UK (or any EU country for that matter). I certainly DO know that it is totally unacceptable for HIRING a car in the UK, but has anyone any experience of what Mr Plod thinks, or what my son's insurance company might think'?
