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

We want to make you aware that The Road Safety Authority have issued an important message advising any resident in the Republic of Ireland who holds a UK/NI driving licence to exchange it for an Irish driving licence before a potential hard Brexit on 31 October 2019.

After this date, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, any current UK/NI driving licence will no longer be valid when driving in the Republic of Ireland. It is important that if you hold a UK/NI driving licence, you exchange it now to be certain that you are legally entitled to drive on Irish roads after the UK leaves the EU. 

By exchanging the licence now, a current UK Licence Holder could avoid possible lengthy delays and the likelihood that they will not have a valid licence post a possible no-deal Brexit. 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, where you can also make a booking to attend your nearest NDLS centre.
