AlcoSense NF Single Use Breathalysers

The most technically advanced single use disposable breathalyser in the world. No larger than a cigarette.

Travelling in France? You’ll need one!

As of 1st July 2012 it is illegal to drive in France without an NF Approved breathalyser in your car. To comply with the law you must have an NF approved device, not just any breathalyser will do. AlcoSense Single Use NF Breathalsyers are one of only a couple of products worldwide to meet and exceed the NF standard. When ordering please choose the AlcoSense Single NF (French Version) in the checkout, not the UK Version. The NF French version is slightly different to comply with the NF regulations and has the all important NF mark on it.

Police Level Accuracy

Many products claim this, but we can say this with 100% confidence. Why? Because derivatives of the AlcoSense Single Use Breathalysers are used by Police Forces in over 30 countries including the Police Nationale and Gendarmerie Nationale (Police) in France. They’re used as a quick and effective screening device to show the Police Officer if the driver is over the limit, if the suspect fails the text they will be taken to the Police station for evidential blood or urine testing before conviction.

Clear Results Showing Your Level

AlcoSense Single Use Breathalysers are the only single use breathalyser to not just tell you that you have alcohol in your system, but to also accurately indicate how much. Clear indication of your level compared to the French drink drive limit of 0.5‰BAC. 

Patented crystals inside the tube change colour from yellow to green in the presence of alcohol. The further up the graduated tube the green colour appears the greater the concentration of alcohol the user has in their system. As the green colour change touches each line, you’ve passed each limit. Simple!

Precise breath sample measurements

AlcoSense Single Use Breathalysers use a blow bag to make sure the right volume of deep-lung air passes through the tester. Too little air equals a falsely low reading, too much equals a falsely high reading. Having the blow bag eliminates this issue and helps to give you one of the most accurate disposable breathalyser readings in the marketplace.

Corporate testing and promotions

If you are looking to introduce AlcoSense Single Use Breathalysers to your organisation for screening or as promotional gifts please contact us for bulk pricing.

Why Delay?

Part of the responsible enjoyment of alcohol is to understand its effect on the body and to understand when you are safe to drive. AlcoSense™ helps people do exactly that and takes out the potentially fatal guess work the morning after. Don't leave it to chance, order yours now.

for french driver

by Amazon Customer on 20/07/2016

Perfectly good product. A pack of two that is useful for meeting the new rules on french laws. It is confusing though. The ferry website says we need to carry these in France, but the internet says that the rules are no longer enforced. Still cheap price to pay to not have to worry I suppose.

Arrived next day thanks to Amazon Prime. I checked the expiry date (many have been concerned by this) and mine (delivered June 2016) don't expire until April 2018. So almost two years of life for the price.I can't say that I'm enamoured with having to carry them, especially since I only travel between the Channel Tunnel and the Belgian border, but better than the risk of an on-the-spot fine from a friendly gendarme,

Breathalyser for use in France

the French are intelligent people who would never pass such a stupid law

by David on 10/06/2016

I hired a car in France a couple of weeks ago from Eurocar, I asked the agent if it was equipped for French roads with warning triangles etc and he assured me it was, I then asked him if there were breathalysers in the car as "required by French law". He said there is no such law in France and there never has been such a law, it was merely a proposal that has now been dropped, so there never will be such a law. It is an urban myth perpetuated by Halfrauds and others that these are required under French law, the French are intelligent people who would never pass such a stupid law, so if this is why you were planning to buy these do not waste your money.

I bought this for 1 reason only... If I leave the bar .. Test myself and I'm over I may as well go back in and have more .. As where I live we must book a taxi well in advance ... So no booking .. No taxi ... And when you leave and fail you're own test .. You may as well go back and have a few more ... When you're done you're done.. Hung for a sheep as a lamb... And drive away and hope for the best...at least you know where you will stand if stopped .. So a good product ..

Alright - at a push.

by C. Konig on 23/03/2016

OK at a push. A bit fiddly to use, requiring you to inflate a bag and then use the bag to blow your breath into the tube. It can be a bit difficult to read with confidence. The demarcation between green and orange can be a bit unclear. I've used one of the electronic breathalysers and they seem worth paying the extra for.

by Blackers on 12/03/2016

Now being a heavy drinker, I never know when i'm smashed. Usually I have to rely on the attendance of the local Constabulary to confirm this or I wake up in the local A&E Department with blunt force trauma to my face. This product, however, lets me know how ripped I am. When i'm out on the sauce, all I have to do is blow into one of these things and it tells me whether or not I should keep drinking, go to a club, get a kebab or partake of some sort of anti social behaviour. Be warned though as mistakes are easy to make. I attended a stag do in Ibiza and was unable to distinguish between this product and a straw, which I mistakenly blew into. As nothing came up, I continued drinking and woke up on a fishing trawler handcuffed to a bearded sailor called Silas dressed as a ballerina.

Necessary, and May Not Work

by despicable on 27/12/2015

Arrived in good time. I'm not too sure of the legal implications of not having these breathalysers with you in France, but I'd rather not give the French plods an excuse to have a whinge and impose a fine or worse. They state they're compliant with all the rules and regulations; however, a few weeks ago my brother-in-law and I tried an old pack of these that had run past its Use By date: they both indicated we were legal to drive, even after a belly-full or two of beer. Now I appreciate the inaccurate readings may have had more to do with them being about 6 months past their Use By dates, they were still forgiving even after over 6 pints of bitter.

I'm not bothering for France, but......

by Ebuyer on 07/09/2015

Well, there's been a lot of confusion over the past 5 year about the need to carry these. At the current time there's no fine so I won't be bothering again until France has sorted itself out in this respect. See below links....http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/overseas/driving-abroad-whats-new-2012.htmlhttp://www.drive-france.com/faqs/france-breathalyzer-law/However, I've given these a 5 star rating because I've tried them out against a calibrated tester and they work within the limits that are indicated on the box, so for me they do exactly what they should. Whether you choose to buy them is, of course, your choice........I used mine to check on a couple of morning after readings which might surprise you if you've had a late night.....may buy a few more just for that!

Good product, and an initial delivery problem sorted out very well

by Matthew Paine on 21/08/2015

Ordered a set of one-shot breathalysers and Alocosense's basic electronic product. The electronic breathalyser is good and seems to work reliably. Haven't yet had the 'chance' to use any of the one-shot breathalysers specified for use in France. However, was not initially very impressed with delivery. Having paid for next-day delivery, was then (i.e. after they had the money) sent an email apologising for the fact the electronic tester was out of stock . On complaining that the order may as well be cancelled as we were leaving for France shortly and needed the one-shot breathalysers asap, they did arrange for the one-shot testers to be sent by post and they did arrive in time, so that was OK and we appreciated the effort to get us the vital bits on time. The electronic tester duly arrived a couple of weeks later. As delivery was thus in two lots, I appreciate that Alcosense had paid more than they bargained for on delivery costs. However, I had not get the next day delivery I had paid for and they did not offer a refund of the premium delivery fee, so it seemed a bit chaotic from a 'world class' customer service point of view. Subsequently, pleased to report that once they had taken on board the problem AlcoSense responded very positively to make amends, with postage refund and a batch of spare tubes. As this was only a small order to start with I was impressed with the trouble they took to make good. Now more than pleased to join their large group of unqualified fans.

an essential when driving through France and everyone should check the morning after drinking the night before

by Mrs Karen Gordon on 30/07/2015

"I haven't actually used the single use AlcoSense breathalyser yet (fortunately as this would only happen if pulled over by the gendarmerie when driving through France!) but I'm a big fan of the Elite AlcoSense unit which I tend to use the morning after a slightly more sociable night than usual! I am then comfortable driving if it gives me the all clear or, on the ocasisons I have registered as either over the limit or on the edge, I have delayed getting into the car until the readig is ""lo"". Part of my worry is the risk of having a minor accident in the car - because of someone else's daft driving, getting breathalysed and my insurance being invalidated, not because there was anything wrong with my driving but because the trace of alcohol left in my blood system lets the insurance company off the hook (and quite rightly so) and . Most of us know when we're really not safe to drive but this little gadget takes the guesswork out of the morning after when sometimes you might feel fine but the reading tells you otherwise."

I first got a couple of these units for France in case we got stopped on our way down to Italy last year. After trying one while away ,i found i WAS over the limit one morning after a heavy dinner and a bottle of wine. I didnt drive till next day, my wife had the pleasure of driving through Switzerland ,and i just had to look. Bit of a result realy. Wont travel without them now both here and abroad. Pity they dont make one for Europe that is'nt a one use throw away.Might be a bit more money but would'nt have to be replaced.

You can breath easy and drive safely with AlcoSense Breathaysers

by Mr Gerard Sweeney on 29/07/2015

When driving in France, you need to carry a Breathalyser with you. There's a debate to weather you need them or not, but I found them a good reminder, not to risk the stupidity of drink driving, especially the next ,orning. These are handy to use, very compack, especailly when on a motorcycle and good value for money. I think it's best to buy them before you go, becasue the price on baord ship, is a lot higher.

Good price but they do go out of date so don't buy too far in advance of your trip

by Dave on 21/07/2015

Was travelling to France and didn't want to have to try to explain why I didn't have these. I realise that through some loophole you can't get fined for not having any but for the sake of a few pounds I just bought them. The only downside is that the product has an expiry date so I shall have to buy some more if I ever go back to France.

by invoke delight on 13/07/2015

Did the job, didn't have to use them at all through France on my trip to Rome last year (the apparently notorious Gendarmerie couldn't have been less interested in my travels) though so dunno if they work - I just bought the pair to tick a box and not get ripped off on the ferry really. These were definitely cheaper. Saved them for this year's Europe trip to Sweden - although you must check the expiry dates when you plan to use them as they do expire.

Nothing wrong with product as far as I can tell, but haven't had to use it (yet).The problem is the idea that France has become like this, when police everywhere else seem to be funded well enough to have their own breathalysers. What with the insane motorway tolls on top (arguably an illegal tax on visitors), France clearly wants people to avoid the place! Soon you'll have to wear your underpants on the outside, so they can check they're clean.

French-approved 2 x one-use breatherlysers. Frankly, pretty pointless if you ask me, as it may encourage people to drink 'up to the limit' but it's the law in France and if you have this in your glove box, gives the French plice one less excuse to fine the GB-stickered driver.

I would buy it again.

by Mr. S. A. Kalwij on 08/02/2015

I bought this as this is compulsory to have in the car when driving through France. I never had to use this so I don't know if they work. Only a fool would drink and drive. It lives in a dark recess in the boot of our car.

I am not a heavy drinker but was going out for a few parties and needed to drive the very next morning so I got the test to make

by Mrs J White on 07/02/2015

I got these for the Christmas period because some one I know got stopped the next day and failed the breath test. He had not been drinking heavy he shared a bottle of wine with a meal and had a few beer's. Got up next morning thinking he was OK to drive got stopped and failed the BT. I am not a heavy drinker but was going out for a few parties and needed to drive the very next morning so I got the test to make sure that I would be ok I am happy to say when used they did not even register but it gave me piece of mind to know I was OK to drive. Best to be safe than very sorry and for what they cost its not worth the risk.

by Miss J M Diplock on 08/11/2014

Bought this as a test/experiment to see if I'm over the limit the next morning after a night of drinking. Both times I have tried it the crystals just turned a darker yellow no sign of green which indicates no alcohol or 'wet test' but it doesn't say what 'wet test' is. Does this mean they are faulty tubes? I'd be very surprised if I'm under the limit considering how much I drank last night.

IF YOU ARE GETTING THEM FOR DRIVING IN FRANCE READ ON=====================================================These are ideal, two for just under a fiver including postage. They work too.For the benefit of the review I had a little drink or two. Tested before and after. Perfect.NEEDED FOR FRANCE?==================Well, technically yes. But you won't get a fine.Why?1 March 2012 - from "1 July 2012" drivers must carry a breathalyser. Enforced from 1 November 2012 and anyone stopped after that date who fails to produce a breathalyser when requested will receive an on the spot fine of 11.October 2012 - the French government announced that the fine of 11 - has been postponed from 1 November 2012 to 1 March 2013.January 2013 - the French government announced that the fine of 11 - has been postponed indefinitely.So theoretically you need to carry a breathalyser when driving in France but no fine.Hope this helps.

These were a legal requirement for driving in France while I was there so I bought a couple of packs.

These are brilliant, and I recommend that everyone keep a couple in their car.

Despite the regrets of my actions at a weekend, which more often than not involve taking my clothes off, climbing up something challenging, copious amounts of vomit, and ending up asleep next to various obese women, at least I can be sure that I am fit to drive once it is time to resume my weekday occupation as a member of parliament.

Change in colour is an issue

by Mr J R Metcalfe on 12/01/2014

I liked the French authority approval.The main reason for not liking the product was that as i am slightly colour blind / colour defective, I can't tell the difference between the yellow and the green. there just isn't enough colour variation from its dry state to the activated colour. Rendering it useless to me. There needs to be a much greater colour difference between the dry crystals and the activated crystals.

I had a skin full Friday night, over a bottle of wine. Saturday morning at 7.30am I decided to test if I was ok to drive, I was fairly sure I wasn't. Broke out the kit (it was in date, Oct 2014) and followed the instructions to the letter. Result was no alcohol in my system. I called BS on that and decided to take the dogs for a walk and not risk it.That night, right after the last glass of another bottle of wine (yes I drink too much!) I tested the second Breathalyser, results of that one was I had alcohol in my system (no s*** Sherlocke)but I was ok to drive.These little suckers may be required in France, but DO NOT rely on them to tell you whether you are ok to drive or not.

No FINE if you don't have one

by Stephen on 18/09/2013

January 2013 - Drivers in France have been required to carry a self-test breathalyser since July 2012 with enforcement by fines originally planned for 1 November but subsequently postponed to 1 March 2013. Now the French government has announced that the implementation of the sanction (fine) for drivers not carrying a breathalyser - a fine of 11 - has been postponed indefinitely.So you are still required to carry a self-test breathalyser when driving in France but there is no current legislation demanding a fine for non-compliance.Go figure!

by M. J. Chippendale on 30/08/2013

By law you need one of these while driving in France but the French can't fine you for not having one.It is just easier to buy one rather than argue the case.This could only happen in France.

Cheap and cheerful

by Amazon Customer on 23/08/2013

Didn't need them fortunately, and as I understand it the legislation is taking longer than anticipated to come into force - so may you may be able to get away without fines if you don't have them. That said - my French is terrible so thought it best to have a meagre offering to placate the gendarmes

Handy for travelling in France

by Amazon Customer on 13/08/2013

It is now the law in France that you need to have these in your car. So we bought these as it is a twin pack, because if you only have one and the police ask you to use it, you are then illegal straightaway if you do not have another one! Have not used them, but they do not deteriorate, so okay for our next French trip

Hope it works!

by Maid Marian on 05/06/2013

This arrived within a couple of days, most fortunate for us as we booked a very-last-minute trip to France.However, I hope I never have to give a product review, as I hope we never get stopped by les agents de police. Not that we drink and drive, you understand! The main reason I chose this product from among all similar ones is that it is sold as being approved by the French police, and that there are two in the pack. You're supposed to have at least one, so if you get stopped by the police and have to do a breath test, you must have another spare to remain legal. (Although, French red tape being what it is, they have still not passed a law that says they can actually fine you for not having a breathalyser in the car! So you must carry at least one but if you don't, they can't fine you - do they give you a ticking off instead?!! That would certainly improve my French!)Will update if I ever have to use it. By the way, it does show an expiry date on the box, mine is April 2015.

You have to have them.

by Muncus on 01/06/2013

Before you read further I have only anecdotely tested them. and I think they are calibrated to the French limit rather than UK limit.However you need to carry one for driving in France and to avoid the "Can I drive after this drink vs I cannot drive if I use the breathalyser" paradox, I thought I would be best getting two. Plus if you are travelling as a group in more than one vehicle, someone will forget and you can give them the spare.They are cheaper here than Halfords and will save you having to sell and organ to buy one on the ferry.On returning to the UK I decided to test them and used one after 3 pints of 4.8% bitter it gave a positive result. I tested the second the following morning, whilst I still fell squiffy. That also gave a positive reading.But in short you are best not drinking if you are driving, and waiting till you feel good and well the next day.

You simply have to prove to a policemean that breathes alcohol fumes all over you that you have not been partaking of that drug - how? This is apparently the accepted technical answer. If you drive in a sobre state on any highway you have nothing to fear except that you would be seen as antisocial when visiting vine growing districts and not tasting their products! Seriously though it's a very good idea to allow an instant test of sobriety for those who are tempted to break the Pledge. I have not tested it but will carry it in the automobile at all times.

No taxi ... And when you leave and fail you're own test .. You may as well go back and have a few more ... When you're done you're done.. Hung for a sheep as a lamb... And drive away and hope for the best...at least you know where you will stand if stopped .. So a good product ..

Legal status clarification as of 28 Feb 2013.

by Lord Baal on 07/04/2013

The French have updated the legislation on the Breathalyser :-Decree No. 2013-180 of 28 February 2013 amending Article R. 233-1 of the Highway CodeStates " Notice: every driver is required to have a breathalyzer in his vehicle. While maintaining this obligation, the decree removes the penalty should apply, as of 1 March 2013, in case of default of possession of the breathalyser. "In other words it's still a legal requirement to have one but the penalty for not having one has been suspended indefinitely. So no spot fines.

It works

by NPQH52 on 07/04/2013

I guess the French will eventually make their final decision regarding the need for drivers to carry their own Breathalyser kits, however, until then rest assured these do work. I guess we just have to trust the science.

Breathalyser

by Adrian J. White on 30/03/2013

Bought these to comply with French Law - a friend of mine was pulled over about 1km outside Dunquerque a few weeks ago by a French police check. They seemed to be focussing on tourist vehicles. He had a couple in the glove box so no worries. Best to buy a 2-pack because you are required to have one in the vehicle at all times - so if you only have 1 - and you have to blow into it - you become in automatic violation of the legal requirement! Kepp a check on the expiry dates - to comply with the law, they have to be current.I don't know if its still the case, but a few months ago it was hard to buy these in France, so get them before you go!

Essential to stay legal.

by The Old Smithy on 01/03/2013

I lived in France until October of last year. The law became effective for all motorists to carry a kit from November 2012. It MUST have the NF compliance, many don't and totally useless for compliance. I know from experience it's not easy to find in France except at larger supermarkets. Best to avoid the high prices charged on cross channel ferries, IF they have not sold out! Buy at at a very reasonable price, like this product, before you go. Remember, the French limit for blood/alcohol level is HALF that of the UK. That's one small glass (125ml) of wine only! It's unlikely you'll be asked at the French port of entry because they are more interested in illegal immigrants, drugs and weapons BUT, the gendarmerie en route in France do spot checks,

Legally required in France as all motorists/motorcyclists are required by law to carry a breathalyser. In fact two should be carried as if you have used one to prove yourself fit to drive and you then get stopped you no longer have a usable breathalyser and so are then breaking the law.

It's a shame when French motoring laws require the occasional visitor to France hassle in having to acquire motoring 'accessories' that they're unlikely to use in the UK, but I guess it's our choice to go there or not. This item would appear to be one of them, but the good thing is that it's available at a reasonable price and it's quick and convenient to buy online. I haven't used it as I wasn't required to produce it, but I have it with my headlight beam deflectors, GB plate, hazard triangle, high-vis jackets, first aid kit and other paraphernalia required for driving on the right!

I only bought it as it is a legal requirement in France. I am unlikely to use it.

I had expected to buy a pair in Spain before crossing the border, but there were none on sale and no one had head of them, or in France at our first stop, but none of the Autoroute service stations from the Spanish border to Abbeville had them or advertised them and each and every enquiry was met with the usual Gallic shrug

Wow!

by Andrew Parsons on 07/01/2013

Didn't use them, but they are a necessary evil to prevent a fine from the fuzz en francais. Just make sure they aren't out of date for your trip.I imagine that they'll stay in my glovebox forever....

a MUST HAVE for travel in France.

by Lepus on 06/01/2013

Reasonable price. Are cheaper in France but you will struggle to find them! You MUST have these if you are going to France, or face a fine if stopped by police.

Rather difficult to rate this item, as I have never used it but it is, allegedly, a legal requirement when travelling in France, although this situation may change!!

If the french police stop us we can tell them that we have all the right gear because you can never trust foreign police. Be prepared

Legal requirement

This will sit in the glovebox until it is out of date and has to be replaced. For France only.

Eurotrip essential

by Stu on 03/01/2013

As there are ever increasing requirements for motorists by those across the channel, this is at least small and desrete so there's plenty of room left in the car for bringing back other goodies. Have not needed to use the item, but seems to be one of the leading makes and would no doubt satisfy the local plod

Great product and law

by Mike V on 31/12/2012

I bought this product to comply with French law but have used one in the UK also. They appear to give a clear indication of your alcohol level and would be enough to stop you driving even if slightly effected by last nights pints or glasses.To all those complaining about the French law, if you don't think you are ever over the limit, fine! The law is there to protect you from others who may unknowingly be, and £5 every 2 years is immaterial for anyone who can afford to take driving holidays in France. The sooner we have a similar law in the UK the better.

Up the French

by TurinShroud on 30/12/2012

Well it was bought to avoid the French being nasty as it is now a requirement to have two of these items. While they are cheaper in France (slightly) I know of at least one person stopped leaving a ferry port so money well spent.

As described, but have not tested it yet as it was bought it comply with the new French regulations. A little more expensive than buying it on a ferry, but it guaranteed having one for my journey.

French Tourism tax or austerity measures?

by Mr Alan Sherratt on 24/12/2012

A must for driving in France

by Peter Mayhew on 16/12/2012

Once again France is inivative in it's approach to road safety though why we should pay for breathaliser kit's I'll never know. I don't drink so it's more wasted money for me. I can understand the need for Hi Vis jackets, First Aid kits, warning triangles and fire extinguishers but this is a little over the top and it's now against the law if you don't have 2 breathalisers. These were the cheapest that I could find and are perfect for the job so Amazon comes to the reascue again.I suggest people read the items that you need to carry before going to France etc and finally, a speed warning, the warnings that the French used to have just before a speed trap are coming down and more cameras are going in, so beware.

Bargain price - a must for me as I do travel through France often. A snip at the price, cheaper than any retailers. Consider this product highly "IF" you are likely to pass through France - it's law!

Bought these only because they are a legal requirement for travel in France. Hope we never need to use them, so cannot vouch for their efficacy. However, they arrived promptly and seem to fit the bill. Good value for money
