In California, you can just walk in and get a same-day appoinment to take the written test. How ’bout in France? The chapter number should give you some indication. Chapter thirty-freakin’-five of French License.
The test isn’t actually written and it’s called driving ‘theory.’ Not written means you use these little consoles instead of pencil and paper. ‘Theory’ means that, theoretically, they’ll let you take the test one day. Americans wouldn’t believe how the theory test is conducted here, and what you need to pass.
