UK Driving Licences Will Be 'Invalid' In The EU After Brexit

British motorists could face new barriers when trying to drive on the continent post Brexit because UK licences will no longer be recognised by the EU, the European Commission has suggested.





If no arrangements are put in place, Britons could be banned from being automatically able to drive in Europe once the country's departure from the EU is confirmed.


A contingency plan being put in place would instead see drivers having to buy a 12-month International Driving Permit that will need to be used alongside their UK licence when driving a car in Europe.
These are currently in operation around the world, but Britons do not need one for every country. However, the AA says it is recommended or required in around 140, including the USA.


During a presentation last month, the European Commission said there would no longer be a mutual recognition of licences as a 'consequence of the UK becoming a third country in the road transport sector' and that 'all current EU law-based rights, obligations and benefits [would] cease'.

Documents from the commission's meeting said Britain's exit from the EU would mean the 'end of mutual recognition of driving licences, vehicle registration documents and certificates of professional competence for drivers'.
