If you mean drive it back permanently then there are all sorts of hoops you need to jump through. This proved an expensive nightmare for us a couple of years ago.
If it's just for a holiday then all you need do is check with your insurers in France first.

My car insurance covers me throughout Europe - I have been in my French reg. car to Spain, England, Switzerland, Italy and Germany. It never occurred to me to tell my insurers. When I had a problem in England, I rang the Paris number and they arranged for a nearby garage to come out and fix it.

Gan cover me for Europe as well so when we cross over to Spain for a few days or drive back to England, there's no problem.
