As your photocard licence has expired, you may need to get a document from DVLA which shows your entitlement to drive and the various groups.  Just ring DVLA and they will post it next day.  The cost is £5, which they will take on a debit or credit card.

We have just been through this process - earlier this week in fact, so it's all very fresh in my mind.

We went to the Sous Prefecture in Lorient armed with every bit of paper we thought we might need. In fact all they required was this:

The two completed forms along with three photographs

One colour copy of my driving licence (printed double sided)

One colour copy of my passport

One copy of EDF bill

One copy of my birth certificate. (My husband didn't need this but as a married woman's French licence is issued in her maiden name, a birth certificate is required)

One stamped addressed envelope for them to notify us when the licences are ready.

First in the queue at 8.30 am and all dealt with very pleasantly and efficiently. No licence translation was required. Out of there by 9am and our new licences will be reday to collect in about a month.

Vichy,

- etat de deliverance du titre du echanger  =  country of issue if different from your current licence, i.e.   did you have a German before changing for your current UK licence ?  

If you have only ever had a UK licence enter ...  NON

- date d' objection ou deliverance  = valid from date  ( from your photocard / or paper if you have one )

 

Hope this helps.

My son let his photocard licence expire and when he applied for a french licence, just for the same categories (no HGV etc.) he had to have a sight test - he's 36, so not because of his age.
