Here’s an overview of what it’s like driving in France. Tourists shouldn’t worry about renting a car because driving in France isn’t as intimidating as it might seem once you know the rules of the road and what to expect. In this France travel video, I’ll tell you about what tourists need to know before driving in France, including info about traffic circles, toll roads in France, French breathalyser, road signs, and more!

Note: This is by no means an all inclusive video on everything you need to know before a French road trip. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules of the road to be safe before getting behind the wheel.
