Licence to live in France

My wife and I obtained French Permis de Conduire in December 2012.

In order to obtain these licences we had to be known as being French residents. In our view, we have proof that we are French residents and have been for over the five-year period that has been set as proof of uninterrupted stay in France with regard to obtaining a cartes de séjour.

We have lived in France since August 2002, and given that the Permis de Conduire is proof of our status surely this fact would be supported by the European Court of Human Rights ensuring provision of all the services, including medical, that we have been entitled to have since 2002.
