if you plan enough in advance, you let your license expire before you move to France. Once your license expires, you can dispose of your records. There is no need to keep them or send them to ATF.
Now, if your license would be still valid when you wanted to move to France, you could surrender
your license to ATF (gets you in practice for when you move to France
). I'm not sure if you must turn in your records if you surrender your license, but know that you don't have to if you let it expire.
