Has anyone done this recently?
I'm just gathering all the various bits of paperwork together before making an appointment with the Prefecture.
My query pertains to the part where it says a translation of the driving licence by a certified translator must be provided. Now upon examining my paper licence there doesn't appear to be a great deal that would need translating but I suppose that's part of the fun when it comes to bureaucracy. And perhaps the necessity of the translation depends on where in France you are.
My questions are....
1. How much should I expect to pay for this translation?
2. Can anyone recommend someone in Montpellier?
3. I'd heard elsewhere that the Hotel de Ville can stamp the paperwork which negates the need for a translation although I've got my doubts about this.
4. And once at the Prefecture how quick are they at issuing the French driving licence?
