Default French Army Driver's Qualification Badge?

I'm trying to find out exactly what this badge is but have had no luck so far. I think that it is an Army driver's qualification badge (1930s), am I right? Does anyone have a photograph of it in wear?

Thank you in advance!

Eric

WW1-1940~ The French used a version of the chariot insignia as their automobile driver qualification insignia.

Normally it's more of a cloth version...

These would be sewn onto the uniform.

Thank you! I'm assuming this would be a breast badge or a sleeve badge?

Hello

It's called "prix de conduite de voiture hippomobile"
circa 1920

Excellent, thank you Dieter. Kind of like a "wagoneer" in the US Army.
