Product description

France driving kit

France is a popular driving and holiday destination for UK tourists, with many families heading by road to popular destinations such as Paris, Euro Disney or the south of France. However, if you’re planning on driving through France, you will need to ensure that you carry a number of items in your car to meet the strict French driving requirements.

January 2013 - Drivers in France have been required to carry a self-test breathalyser since July 2012 with enforcement by fines originally planned for 1 November but subsequently postponed to 1 March 2013. Now the French government has announced that the implementation of the sanction (fine) for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed indefinitely.

Our France driving kit includes all of the essential items that you need to carry, as well as a few helpful extras including sun shades for your side windows, an a French road map to help you find your way around.

Remember, driving laws differ from country to country, so if you’re driving through France en route to another country, you will also need to make sure that you carry the items required for your final destination and any other territories you will be driving through.   Check out our Driving in Europe advice section for more details.

Designed specifically for driving in France, our kit includes the following items:

It contained a good number of useful items.

It was good to have everything we needed in one place, albeit we only needed the diffusers and the GB sticker. But you never know!

Everything I needed for a trip to France arrived promptly with helpful advice.

Good product, as advertised.

Great idea - really helpful. Just a thought. Would it be worth having an "additional person kit" which would have 2 hi-viz jackets and 2 foil blankets which people could opt for?

Not yet assessed. I will unpack and use only if necessary

Good value for all necessary requirements.

GB sticker poor. Too small. Why is it not bigger and like the normal GB stickers. Also a magnetic one like the AA one would be better.

This is because, when it arrived I only had the first aid kit and the triangle in the bag, I had to ring up rac shop and ask them to send out the rest of the kit, but even though I stated I was going on holiday in a weeks time the rest of the kit did not arrive and I had to purchase a brand new one on the way to my holiday

I tried to call about my order and all numbers on the website would not connect. I then called RAC switchboard and was hung up on.

The kit looks good and is comprehensive. Still waiting for my paperwork from the insurance division though, very slow there.

The dip converters were describes as suitable for all cars. The beam pattern template did not work for ny car, a Citrien C5, and the adhesive on the converters was faulty. When I peeled off the backing sheet the adhesive remained on the backing sheet. <br/>GB plate was unusable. It was the small blue rectangle usually seen on number plates. Not enough room for it on a standard number plate so I had to buy a conventional black on white oval from another supplier. Have not yet needed to use the rest of the kit, but I don't have confidence in it. <br/>I would not recommend this kit to a friend and will buy elsewhere if I need another.

Fantastic kit, compact in one plastic pack with zipper. Everything we need for a car trip to France in one handy, easy to pack unit.

The kit arrived quickly together with the fire extinguisher which we ordered separately, however when we opened the plastic bag containing the kit we could not find the headlight converters. Tried phoning customer services but was placed in a queue so gave up. In the end purchased GB sticker and headlight converters from Halfords.

Had everything we needed plus added extras and it's in a compact bag - only problem is the zip ripped off the plastic, so it's no longer sealable.

RAC sent me an email to say they would let me know when back in stock, but they didn't. Ordered them, then find out by email a week after I have bought two euro driving packs, that they have taken another 20% off....... So I could have saved another &pound;14!

Outer container is a bit flimsy but content is good.

The plastic container is brittle and broken to be useless as a container for the cointents. <br/>There seems to be an excess of bandage type items. <br/>My travelling companion has purchased a travelling kit from Tesco for &pound;23 and is superior.

The bulbs in the car bulbs pack were nearly all smashed

It would be a good idea if the bag actually was large enough to fit everything in it, rather than only some with the rest rattling around in the boot

Everything i needed (and more) for a fantastic price and the individual items were of a high standard, also well packaged.

for the price paid, I was disappointed that the items didn't all fit in the case supplied. <br/>Everything required for travelling in France was included, and the map definitely came in handy!

Will be going to France this weekend. The RAF Driving in France Kit appears to have everything needed to comply with French law which is what I wanted. Also those little extra like an adapter and spare bulbs. Very good kit. Delivery was good too. Thank you.

Fine although not all of it goes in the case

All there as described, would have been better if everything fitted in the bag. As the kit supplied was a basic kit with the extras to make up the European (France) bag loose. They do not all fit in the kit bag, which was disappointing.
