European Union and European Economic Area drivers are entirely permitted to drive in the United Kingdom.
If they wish to travel on British roads for more than 12 months, drivers from abroad would have to trade their licence for a UK driving licence. Many of those non-EU users, preferably within 12 months of being in the UK, would still have to take a UK driving exam.
We will help you plan for it well in advance of your 12-month deadline if you ever have to take an exam.
You will have to register for a temporary driving licence if you refuse to reach the 12-month date, which means you can’t drive unless joined by someone else who owns a full UK driving permit.
