Almost 700,000 French drivers drive without a driver's license, a phenomenon that is on the rise

DANGER – Nearly 700,000 drivers drive without a driving license in France, according to the National Interministerial Observatory of Road Safety (ONISR). This phenomenon has increased by 30% in five years and has more than doubled since 2009.

Driving without a license, a dangerous and growing phenomenon. The number of drivers driving without the expensive sesame has increased by 30% in five years and has more than doubled since 2009. According to the latest figures from Road Safety, quoted by RTL Monday 8 April and confirmed at LCI, nearly 700,000 French people drive without a driver's license, while there were 300,000 ten years ago.

According to the public body, two-thirds never obtained their driving license because of the high price (on average 1500 euros) that varies per region. The other third party was withdrawn by law enforcement authorities or gradually lost their points by multiplying small infringements. "In 2017, around 120 people lost their license one point at one point," Emmanuel Barbe, interdepartmental representative for road safety, told RTL.

This is not the first time that the National Interministerial Observatory of Road Safety (ONISR) sticks these high-risk behaviors on the road. In the previous report, which was published in November 2017, the government body already had 600,000 drivers without a license and 700,000 drivers without insurance.

In France, driving without a driver's license or without insurance, or both, is a real nuisance. In 2016, 4.2% of drivers who were involved in a fatal accident and 2.6% of those who were involved in a personal injury accident without a valid license drove. Driving without a license is punishable by a fine of 15,000 euros and a year in prison. In the event that the driver has already been arrested for a previous violation of the traffic law, the fines can amount to a fine of 30,000 euros and two years in prison.
