DRIVING IN THE UK ON A FOREIGN LICENCE
Use our handy guide below to check if your licence is valid to drive in Great Britain
Where did you pass your test?
Can you drive in Great Britain?
You can drive in GB on your full, valid driving licence until it expires.
European Union or European Economic Area
You can drive in GB on your full, valid driving licence until you’re 70, or for 3 years after becoming resident in GB, whichever is longer.
Gibraltar, Jersey, Guernsey, Isle of Man or a 'designated country'
You can drive in GB on your full, valid driving licence for 12 months from when you became resident.
You need to exchange your licence after 12 months - you have 5 years since you became resident to do this.
Driving licences from these countries will be exchanged for a full British licence providing you took and passed your test in one of these countries.
Any other country
You can't exchange your licence but you can drive on your foreign licence for up to 12 months from when you became resident.
After 12 months you’ll need to take a theory test and practical test to get a GB issued driving licence.
The DVLA states that you’re normally a resident if you have a permanent address in Great Britain that you’ve lived in for at least 185 days.
