Hi,

I have a UK Foundation license, and I will probably move to France soon.
What do I need to do, once I am in France, to get a French license, how long does it take, how much does it cost?

Regards,
Francois

Hello. I can only relate to what I did for my U.S. Extra license, which was to contact the ANFR, fill a form and get a French call-sign. It's free and takes a couple weeks. Now, I am not sure they will give you one from a Foundation license... I doubt it. You would be better off getting a full license and then asking for a French call-sign, or if your French is good enough, pass the French exam.
