Driving in the EU: UK licence holders living in the EU

Driving in the EU: UK licence holders living in the EU

Driving licence exchange and rules for driving in EU countries.

 

If you live in the EU, you will not be able to renew your driving licence in the UK.

 

Consider exchanging your UK driving licence for an EU licence as soon as possible in line with specific advice for your country of residence.

 

If your UK licence is lost, stolen or expired, you may not be able to exchange it for an EU licence. You may have to apply for an EU licence and retake your driving test. Please check with the licensing authority in your country of residence if your licence is lost, stolen or expired.

 

Check the driving advice for the country you live in.
