Important Information for UK Driving Licence holders living in the Republic of Ireland

The Road Safety Authority have issued a final reminder advising any resident in the Republic of Ireland who holds a UK/NI driving licence to exchange it for an Irish driving licence before the 31st of December 2020, as UK/NI licences will not be valid to drive on in Ireland after this date.

While the UK has left the EU, a transition period was agreed that allowed for the exchange of driving licences to continue. That transition period ends on the 31st of December 2020. If you are resident in Ireland and using a UK/ N.I NI licence to drive it will no longer be valid to drive on here in Ireland after this date.

It is vital that you have a valid driving licence and that you are legally allowed to drive in Ireland by exchanging a UK licence for an Irish driving licence. You may not hold a UK Driving Licence yourself, but you may have a current named driver on your motor insurance policy who does.

Full details on how to exchange a licence can be found on the National Driving Licence Service website
