Driving if you move abroad
You need to get a local driving licence if you move abroad. Check with the driving licence authorities there to find out how to apply.
In some countries you can exchange your UK licence without taking another driving test.
If you move to an EU country before 31 December 2020
Apply to exchange your UK driving licence as soon as you can to make sure you get one before 31 December 2020.
If you come back to visit the UK after exchanging your licence, you can drive here on your new licence.
You’ll be able to swap it back if you move back to the UK.
