Does anyone know if I will need an International Driving Licence in order to take my Burgman down through France this summer? If so, how do I get one?

You shouldn't for at least 2 years but as stated fill the form in at any 'good' post office counter and they fill it in there and then costs £5.50 as I recall. You'll need a passport size photo

It's actually worth having as most European countries expect production of photo ID if requested by authorities so is handy

We still have our paper licences without photos, they were checked by police in a random check in France last summer and no comments made?

Should we change these? would we have to for the privelege? We will be in France for june d day celebrations

I had a look at my photo Driving Licence a couple of days ago, complete with EU flag emblem on it, and as they have to be renewed every 5 years, mine expires at the end of April so I'm glad I checked.

I also had to renew my passport eight months early in November to be able to visit Israel last month, (it's one of quite a few countries that you have to have a valid passport with at least six months left on it to gain entry).

So I have two very nice up to date leftover colour passport photos that I can use for my new Licence, and any new Driving Permit that I need to obtain.

Had a live chat with DVLA who assured me no photo required for IDP and my current paper licence also ok, but if I wanted to change to a photo license it would cost £20
