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

The National Driver Licence Service (NDLS) is currently advising that in the event of a no-deal Brexit the driving licence of a UK licence holder living in the Republic of Ireland will not be recognised as valid from the 29th March 2019.

As such, the driver will not be able to continue to drive in the Republic of Ireland on that UK licence. The advice to such drivers is that they should exchange their UK driving licence for an Irish driving licence before the 29 March 2019.

Where can I get more information?

Further information can be found on the National Driver Licence Service website.

Will Liberty Insurance still insure me?

If you exchange your current UK Licence to an Irish Licence and provide us with proof of this, there will be no impact on your insurance policy.

But what if I can’t exchange my UK Licence to an Irish Licence before the 29th March?

Liberty Insurance is continuing to monitor all Brexit related developments on an ongoing basis and any potential impact it may have on our customers. When we have additional information we will share this at the earliest opportunity.

However, if you hold a UK licence, Liberty Insurance advises that you make contact with the NDLS as soon as you can to organise an appointment at the earliest possible time to commence the process of transferring your licence.

Why haven’t you got an answer for this, you knew Brexit was going to happen?

The National Driver Licence Service issued a communication in relation to the impact of Brexit on UK licence holders driving in Ireland on the 18th February 2019.

As noted above, as soon as we have additional information on this situation we will share this with our customers at the earliest opportunity.
