Driving in the EU Member States after Brexit

Drivers from the UK may need to take steps to ensure that they can drive in EU Members States after 29 March 2019 – the date currently set for Brexit.

UK drivers may need a different international driving permit (IDP) to drive abroad. If the UK leaves the EU without a deal (or if driving regulations are not part of it), UK drivers may need an IDP and additional documents to drive in EU and EEA Member States. However, with a UK driving licence, you should not need an IDP to drive in Ireland after this time as it does not require drivers from non-EU countries to have IDPs.

It should be noted, however, that as 29 March approaches UK government guidance on UK-EU practicalitiescould be subject to change.
