UK driving licence 'may not be valid in EU' after no-deal Brexit
The government has today announced that the UK driving licence ‘may not be valid in EU’ after a no-deal Brexit. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com says:
“Applying for an International Driving Permit before travelling to EU countries will cause unnecessary confusion for drivers, which we’re concerned could discourage them from driving overseas.
“For a start, there are two types of permit depending on which EU state motorists are driving in. And also, while the £5.50 price tag may not seem like much, it all adds up, especially on top of the initial cost of the trip.
“If we do reach a no-deal Brexit, we advise those planning a trip to Europe after March 2019 to research the requirements and details of the International Driving Permit. Using our guide, drivers can educate themselves on all tips for driving abroad and how to cut costs where possible.”
