BREXIT AND DRIVING LICENCES

ATTENTION Anyone living in Ireland who holds a UK (including Northern Ireland) driving licence.

We want to make you aware that The Road Safety Authority have issued an important message advising any resident in the Republic of Ireland who holds a UK/NI driving licence to exchange it for an Irish driving licence before a potential hard Brexit on 31 October 2019.

After this date, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, any current UK/NI driving licence will no longer be valid when driving in the Republic of Ireland. It is important that if your customer holds a UK/NI driving licence, they exchange it now to be certain that they are legally entitled to drive on Irish roads after the UK leaves the EU.

By exchanging the licence now, a current UK Licence Holder could avoid possible lengthy delays and the likelihood that they will not have a valid licence post a possible no-deal Brexit. They may not hold a UK Driving Licence themselves, but they may have a current NAMED DRIVER on their motor insurance policy who does.

Full details on how to exchange a licence can be found on the National Driving Licence Service website, where your customer can also make a booking to attend their nearest NDLS centre.
