Arrangements from 1 January 2021 is subject to future negotiations. If there are any changes, we will update this guidance as soon as information is available.

UK and EU driving licences

You must exchange your UK driving licence for a local EU licence to drive legally in the country you live in. You should do this before 31 December 2020.

Exchange your licence as early as you can because your application may take longer than usual to process.

Rules for driving in EU countries

You must check the rules for driving and living in different EU countries and follow any local laws.
