Hi, we are driving from Poole, through France to Spain on the 13th August.  Can anyone please tell me what Covid documentation we need to get through the customs.  I know that I will need to take the log book and car insurance including the certificate to drive in the EU, but can any one tell me if I need any other paper work please.

Many thanks

I drove down a few weeks back. At Dieppe customs, they just wanted to see passports and covid vaccination proof (which I don't think they are asking for anymore). Once I told them they I was driving thru France to Spain, they lost interest and sent me on my way. No other checks anywhere on way down.

Hi there. We drove back a few days ago and the only requirement was our passports. We have our Covid vaccination certificates on pur phones, but they weren't needed.

Happy travelling.

Hi, oh thank you for that information.  I have read so much on line it boggles the mind.

It's a pleasure. It takes just one more thing off the list to be concerned about. Marion

Hi I am sure I read on this site somewhere that the GC were stopping people and fining them for not having the International driving licence,or whatever they call it now,

it is not needed BUT for the sake of £5 is it worth the grief
