Abstract
Biological markers form an important part of the decision-making proce ss for regranting of driving licences in France. A major criterion in this respect is the need to distinguish between acute alcohol use and chronic abuse by applicants. Current markers reflect more hepatic dama ge than alcohol consumption and this stresses the need for more reliab le markers.
