    Out of curiosity do French motorists have to carry those items with them while driving in their own country apart from gb sticker and headlamp converters of course

    Another addition, First aid kit, If you have GB on you vehicle registration number then no requirement for GB sticker. I would purchase all the stuff you require in shops in the UK as on the ferry they tend to bump up the price.

    Priorities first

    A new PC can come once the important things are sorted out, before that goes up any more

    Sorry Mick, only just seen you sneaked another bit on the end of your post.

    Yep, you got me there haven't driven in Europe for donkeys years so I suppose I wouldn't have a clue what you really need, what with the internet being a useless source of information and all

    As for the PC, a few things you can do to speed things up a bit that won't cost the earth and even a Muppet like me can do those, as witnessed recently with some of the things I have done.

    There is a great source of help on here in many with that knowledge especially IanBinUK

    One thing you need to be careful of if you're travelling through the French customs posts at the ferry ports late at night. Don't wake them up!

    Can't leave the UK

    Hi
    Just thought I'd grab a headline.
    If I can pull the thread back to centre a bit, I've just spoken to the passport office's helpline. After negotiating the buttons I spoke to a human. I wanted them to send my wife's Thai passport and Certificate of Naturalisation back to us.
    In the course of the conversation I mentioned that we would use them to travel to France.
    After conferring with a supervisor my operator told me that person's applying for a first passport, known as AB1's, were not allowed to leave the UK while the application was being processed. Wow.

    To me this seems like twaddle, but I wondered if anyone has more info.
    Surely this would be a gross violation of a person's human rights. My wife is also a citizen of Thailand and this would amount to being under arrest.
    I can imagine a Brit born in the UK would be stuck, since they would not have a travel document to travel with, but a dual national, surely not.

    Any ideas
    Cheers
    Dotty

    Regarding 9851colle's post.
    I've found when travelling about Europe generally they are not too bothered at borders. I transitted Andorra recently, not in the EU, and saw no evidence of passport control either end.

    My concern is the jobsworths at Dover, I imagine M. Le Gendarme can be pretty cussed if he has a mind and so I want to be able to pass through without let or hindrance to me and mine.

    Cheers
    Dotty

    If you wish to 'pass through' without let or hindrance, your missus either waits for her Brit passport to be issued or gets a Schengen visa endorsed in her Thai passport. Anything else has the potential for aggravation. Certainly, the French won't recognise a naturalisation certificate as evidence of your wife's (British) nationality.

    Save for when the need absolutely arises, don't spoil for a legal fight. You might find yourself being in the right, but having your immediate ambitions thwarted.

    Once you send the passport away, it's in the lap of the gods. You've no choice but to await the return.

    Otherwise, whatever it is that you've applied for will certainly become void and a waste of time and money.
