The car has to be road legal for the country in which it is registered. Therfore if you are British and want to take your car abroad it must comply with the same requirements which would apply if you drove it in Britain, ie Road tax, Insurance, MOT and a valid driving licence.

if its a uk registered car, you only need TAX to drive on uk roads,but dont need tax to drive in france,but you,ll need insurance for uk and france,and you,ll need a green card off some insurance companys but some insurance policys have european cover, check with insurance company BEFORE going to france, and you need to take your license, car registration documents and insurance documents with you, ok, otherwise you will have trouble with french police and be fined on the spot, and they aint very nice police,, and u dont need nothing for your headlights anymore, before yes but now u dont

The tax is purely British, got nothing to do with the continent. When you come back---! Insurance IS required.

Not sure where you're from. If you're from an EU country..... Your present tax will cover it, but you will need to make sure your insurance cover will cover you for driving in france. Eg if your from the UK as long as your UK tax is up to date that will be ok, but you will have to ring up your insurance company and make sure you have cover for driving outside the UK you may need to pay a little bit extra. You would also need to make sure your car is equipped eg you would need to put tape on the headlights such that the beam doesn't shine into the middle of the road for driving on the right.
