France: Confusion About License Point System

French driving license
A couple of years ago, France started a point system for your driving license. If you broke the law with your car or motorcycle, you lost points, and if you had no more points (you start out with 12 points), you lost your license, and after a year or so, you had to take lessons and then do the driving exams again (which takes about a year in France).

Many people have seen their license withdrawn over the years (I almost lost mine with only 1 point left), in 2008, some 98,000 people lost theirs.. But now, there's some confusion. Some smart lawyers (they do exist...) found that all driving licenses issued before 1992 have an "eternal validity", meaning you never have to renew your license. Some of the text in the law, states that the driving license is valid for the life of the driver.

Therefore, the lawyers are arguing that you can not deduct points from the license, and then take the license away, since the pink piece of paper if valid for life!!!

Of course the government doesn't think so, but the legal battle is raging, so maybe the good side will win. But then the government will just change the law.

Anyway, we'll see how this plays out, and let you know who wins...
