Do you drive your van internationally? DVSA want to hear from you

6 Aug 2021

Department for Transport recently announced the introduction of new licensing requirements for some light vehicles used to carry goods on a commercial basis internationally that will apply from May 2022.


The changes are required as part of the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement. 

They’ll be issuing operator licences and will be enforcing these new rules on non-UK vehicles using the UK road network when they are introduced.


DVSA want to make it as easy as possible for you to get what you need to comply with the new requirements when you travel abroad.
