No points as far as I am aware. Also license suspension may not be possible either I’m not sure. I wondered if there would be more fine or skip straight to car confiscation?

While they might not be able to suspend a French licence, they can confiscate your UK one. As its a legal requirement to have your licence while driving in France, it's an unusually elegant way of getting the same result.

A couple of years ago, I read that they'd issue you with a French license, and suspend that, so they could still do you for driving on a suspended license. I'm not aware that it ever happened and they may have given up with Brexit, but I do wonder if the fines are still enforceable in the UK
