    Will be interesting to see if the Police follow through with it.

    Why hasn't he just applied to have his French licence recognised and get a standard NSW one? My sister-in-law did similar last year when she bought a motorcycle and found that it could only be registered in her name if she had an Australian licence. Presented her French licence and "Voila" - job done.

    He's been in Australia a few years now, maybe his native one's expired.

    I wonder if it really is his car - who buys a car before you have a valid license? There will be some of course, but not many!

    French driving licences are for life. My SiL still has hers issued when she was 18 with the photo of the time. Her mother also has hers that was issued when she was 18.

    The registered owner of the car could be in serious trouble too if they can be proven to have allowed an unlicenced driver to drive their car - I think that can be the case.

    Perhaps the car is company owned - so therefore not registered in his name.

    This has just changed and the cardboard licenses are being withdrawn and replaced by a credit card style in comformity with the EU. There are new rules coming in about their updating . It is a smart card with a chip .

    She's back in France every 6 months or so, so no doubt will update.

    Renault would have sensed his 'French-ness' and the popularity of his show. Ergo, a great fit and wonderful free publicity for the Koleos.

    Pretty poor effort from the paparazzi though...

    Thanks for that Gerry, as I've misplaced my Belgian one so hopefully I can just get a nice new plastic one when I get over there for the summer.

    And a clean Pug is destroyed by a Mt Druitt kid who took his grandmother's 405 for a midnight hoon.

    Everyone survived, with no life threatening injuries...
