January 31, 2020

I have received the following guidance from colleagues in the DVLA about the above I hope you find it useful:

‘The Withdrawal Agreement has now been formally ratified and the UK will leave the EU on 31 January 2020.  We will enter a ‘transition period’ until 31 December 2020 during which arrangements will remain as they are now. This would mean an International Driving Permit (IDP) and motor insurance green card would not be required during 2020.  The pages will be reviewed and updated to reflect the current situation.

Arrangements for January 2021 onwards will be subject to EU-UK future relationship negotiations. will be updated with information as it becomes available’.

If you have any queries on this issue please let me know and I will follow up with DVLA.

Kind regards

Tim Rook
