I was just reading the following article on the BBC website.
Basically, (for those that are not already aware), our photocard licenses are only valid for 10 years from date of issue. I thought I was ok as I changed my address 4 years ago before coming to France but they don't renew the photocard just issue a replacement with the same expiry date.
As a result I rushed off to check my photocard license and discovered that it has effectively gone past its sell by date!!!
My question therefore is what do I need to do and how does that affect me here in France?
I have already decided that I was going to change my drivers license for a French version but figured I had plenty of time since my actual license is valid until 2041!
Any advice would be appreciated especially in the case of me getting pulled over by the Gendarmes!!
