  • Reflective jackets  - one for each occupant, these must be kept inside the vehicle within easy reach
  • Warning triangle - compulsory in every vehicle with 4 wheels or more
  • Headlamp beam deflectors - depending on your car, you will either need deflector stickers or have to adjust the beam manually
  • Breathalysers/alcohol test - as of January 2013 the French government announced that the introduction of an €11 fine for not carrying one has been postponed indefinitely, however, law still states that drivers of motor vehicles and motorcyclist must have a breathalyser ready for use in their vehicle even though no penalty will be imposed if they cannot present one during a police road check.
  • A GB sticker or ‘euro’ registration plates featuring the GB  

You can purchase any items individually or we also sell European driving kits that have all of these items in one kit.  A simple purchase that can help you avoid hefty on-the-spot fines.
