My intention is to travel up on the Tuesday afternoon and stay over on Marine Parade in Dover. I believe from reading other forums that the autohomes do this and its free and a blind eye is turned to it. If anyone should know different please let me know or any suggestions as to where to stay.
We could maybe meet up at the services at the end of the M20 first. I will be filling up there with LPG.
The real question is what time are people aiming to arrive? It will take me about 6 1/2 hours but I am flexible.

I could meet up at a service station on M25. The new one, where I can get gas or maybe the last one, Clacketts, before the M26.

Will anyone be carrying onboard communication other than mobile phones?

Chaps, having been totally confused by the Spire web site I spoke with a very helpful civil servant (yes I know but they do exist) today and she took me through he process. The OGEL is a self certification process and the attached is the OGEL which is to be presented to the UK Borders Agency/HMRC if challenged.

Al the very best

Yes totally confusing but when you finalally get it you wonder what all the fuss is about and worst of all, "what do you do with it". And the answer - NOTHING and you musn't tell the man on the gate that you have got it, it being a long number, unless he asks for it. Wonder how long it took to devise this one?

If it was the same woman who helped me she was very helpful. In the end she did it for me!

bloody french cant make there minds up...... :shock:

Breathalysers
1 March 2012 - the French government confirmed that from 1 July 2012 drivers of all motor vehicles and motorcycles (excluding mopeds) must carry a breathalyser. The regulation will be enforced from 1 November 2012 and anyone stopped after that date who fails to produce a breathalyser when requested will receive an on the spot fine of €11.

October 2012 - the French government announced that the implementation of the sanction for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed from 1 November 2012 to 1 March 2013.

January 2013 - the French government announced that the implementation of the sanction for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed indefinitely.

So theoretically you are still required to carry a self-test breathalyser when driving in France but there is no current legislation demanding a fine for non-compliance.

The original official announcement stated that one unused, certified breathalyser must be produced showing the French certification mark NF. Carrying two single-use breathalysers will ensure that if one is used or damaged, you will still have a spare to produce. The breathalyser produced has to be in date - single-use breathalysers normally have a validity of twelve months.

and as for speed cameras......dirty rotten scoundrels..... :twisted:
Satnav and speed camera alerts
Since 3 January 2012 French laws have prohibited drivers from carrying any device capable of detecting speed cameras. This includes products or devices able to warn or inform of the location of speed cameras e.g. satnav or gps systems capable of showing speed camera sites as Points of Interest.

The law is primarily aimed at speed camera detectors and sat-navs. It is unlikely that the French police will turn their attention to atlases but there is no guarantee this would be the case.

As well as the ban on warning devices, the French government is installing around 400 new, unsigned, fixed speed cameras as well as taking down signs indicating the location of existing camera sites.

If you have a satnav capable of displaying French camera locations in France then you must at least disable camera alerts. Contact the manufacturer for advice too as a software or database update is likely to be available that will remove camera data for France from the device.

If you have a satnav system built into your car then contact the vehicle manufacturer in the first instance.

Don't they also require you to have a set of replacement bulbs for all external lights?
