Following the uncertainty of Brexit, we are letting you know that in the event of a 'no deal' after the 29th March 2019 you will almost certainty require a Green Card and an International Driving Permit to drive your vehicle to the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), Andorra, Serbia or Switzerland. Please be aware that you may need to have these documents before this date if you intend to travel prior to that date and will be out of the UK after the 29th March 2019.
Internatinal Drivers permits are available from most Post Offices, and you will need to bring the following to apply: full valid UK photo-card driving licence, a passport sized photo and your valid passport as proof of identification if presenting an older paper version licence.
Green Cards, are issued by your insurance compnay. However, your insurance policy WILL NOT automatically provide cover at this time, therefore, Insurers are preparing to issue Green Cards in the event of travel outside of the UK. You will need to contact us in order to obtain a Green Card from your insurer to travel with your vehicle. A Green Card will need to be issued on green paper for you to carry with your vehicle.
