About this product

From 1st July 2012 all vehicles travelling in France must carry a breathalyser "NF" (Norme Française) approved. Although still a compulsory requirement, as of January 2013, a driver cannot be penalised for not carrying one; the fine has been postponed indefinitely.

For vehicles travelling in France,  breathalysers must be certified by the French authorities, showing an ‘NF’ number or must confirm to the "NF" (Norme Française) recognised standards. The AA recommends that two single-use breathalysers are carried so if one is used or damaged you will still have a replacement to produce and this handy twin pack fulfils our recommendation.

Features and Benefits:

  • Shows your alcohol level in 2 minutes
  • Complies with French "NF" breathalyser standards
  • "NF" marked so can be legally used in France
  • Indicates when you are over the French drink drive limit of 0.5% BAC

How it works:

The disposable tube contains yellow crystals which turn green in the presence of alcohol. When a measured volume of breath is passed through the tube (after inflating the bag), the extent of the green colour change within the tube indicates if you are above or below the legal driving limit in France.

Do not conduct the test within 20 minutes of the last drink and do not smoke immediately before use.

From 1st July 2012 all vehicles travelling in France must carry a breathalyser "NF" (Norme Française) approved. The AA recommend that two are carried and this handy twin pack fulfils our recommendation. This product carries the “NF” French certification mark and is therefore designed to meet the obligation under French law that anyone driving in France carries a NF standard breathalyser from 1st July 2012. It is important that you read and comply with the manufacturer’s instructions. AA Media Limited and Associated Companies cannot accept liability for any losses suffered or caused by you or any third party arising from use or reliance on this product where such losses are not foreseeable at the time of your purchase and are not a direct result of a breach of a legal duty of care owed by us or a direct result of a breach by us of the terms and conditions of sale. Nothing set out above reduces your statutory rights regarding defective or mis-described goods or limits liability for death/personal injury caused by negligence.
