Driving in France

Jump to last reply

We will be bringing our UK car to Normandy this summer. I've found a few places that list the things we need to bring (deflectors, vest, breathalyzers, etc.) so that's not the concern. I'm more concerned about the rules of the road that might be different. Any good sites for that? I've found a few but they are scattered and don't appear comprehensive. I would really like a "how to pass your driving test(s)" in English if possible.

One thing that caught me eye was:

In built-up areas, if there's no yellow diamond sign, you must give way to any cars coming out of a side turning on the right

So, if there's no sign, you have to yield?? And what constitutes a built up area?

Any other known differences from UK or US rules?

Are roundabouts handled the same way (yield to those in the roundabout) apart from the obvious directional difference!

Thanks.
