A "No-Deal" Brexit will have an impact on motorists with UK-registered cars who want to drive their vehicles in the EU after this date and also motorists with EU-registered cars driving in the UK, including from the Republic of Ireland to Northern Ireland.
Guidance from the Association of British Insurers advises that in the event of a "No-Deal" Brexit drivers of UK-registered cars must carry with them documentation commonly known as a Green Card if they wish to drive their vehicle in the EU after a "No Deal" Brexit.
Green Cards won’t be needed if the UK and EU reach an agreement on Brexit or if a transitional arrangement is implemented.
A Green Card provides proof of insurance for motorists. Each Green Card is unique to a particular vehicle and only drivers named on the Green Card are covered to drive it. Green Cards are non-transferrable and specific to individual vehicles covered by insurance. Anyone driving a UK registered car in the EU, including the Republic of Ireland, without one after Brexit may be breaking the law.
We have already produced a Green Card for vehicles covered by our insurance in the UK. If you have not yet received one or would like one for a new or additional vehicle please contact your broker.
Green Cards are specific to individual vehicles and list named drivers only, if you require additional drivers to be included please contact your broker who can arrange this for you.
For further information on Green Cards, visit the Association of British Insurers’ website abi.org.uk.
A "No Deal" Brexit may also mean that your UK driving licence will no longer be valid for use in the EU. It is possible that UK driving licence holders who want to drive in the EU may be required to carry an International Driving Permit if there is a "No Deal" Brexit. For more details on what this is and how to apply for one visit the UK Government's website page gov.uk/driving-abroad/international-driving-permit.
