I happened to be on the forum and noticed your very informative response regarding driving schools.

I've been driving for 30 years, but I think it's a good idea to take the course so I can learn what I need to for passing the test.  

I live in Valbonne and am VERY interested in your recommendation.  Would you be able to give me the name of the teacher you mentioned?  Or the name of the school, if that's all you have.

Mighty grateful!

I had a great teacher in Valbonne.  He was French but also taught in English.  Depending what time of the day you can go, you may not have to be with a young group.  If you get a decent teacher he will take your age into consideration.  I actually was the only one in my class so it was great.  The reason the price varies is because it depends how fast you catch on.  I didn't know French at the time so I had to learn the language plus the rules.  It took me six months but I passed the written test on the 2nd try, and the on-the-road the 1st time.   Good luck!
