Travelling to Ireland from the UK – Brexit.
Visiting Ireland on a UK licence:
UK visitors to Ireland are not affected, there is no reason that you will not be able to drive in Ireland with your existing driving licence. You will not be required to carry an International Driving Permit with you in order to drive here, just ensure to carry your UK driving licence with you.
Motor Insurance and Green Cards (Proof of insurance):
Since 1 January 2021 a certificate called a ‘Green Card’ which is issued by your UK insurer, and proves that the vehicle is insured, will be required for vehicles from the UK, including Northern Ireland, being driven in Ireland or other EU Member States. This means that since 1 January 2021, UK and Northern Ireland registered vehicles will require a Green Card for cross-border journeys on the island of Ireland. A Green Card is a document that proves you have motor insurance cover when driving in another jurisdiction.
