Driving in France

Driving in France needn’t be stressful so to make sure you have an enjoyable family camping holiday in France we put together some information on driving in France and the legal requirements you will need to meet.

The main thing you have to remember is that in France, vehicles drive on the right and that on roundabouts you MUST give way to vehicles already on the roundabout and coming from the left.

Many accidents in France involving UK drivers occur on dual carriageways and autoroutes. This is normally for one reason – that drivers must give way to vehicles entering from the right and means that YOU must allow the other driver to enter the road…either by slowing down or by changing lanes.

You will find that in France, ‘on-the-spot’ fines will be enforced for non compliance.
