Driving Licences Now in the Firing Line.

Seems we may not be able to drive in the EU after a "no deal" Brexit. May have to have bought an additional form first.

It's a small price to pay, and I hope all the foreign lorry drivers coming on to our roads suffer the same penalty....What's good for the Goose...etc....

Hi

It is all part of leaving, no great shakes at all.

Unfortunately, we have unilaterally decided not to respond and to continue to allow EU Driving Licences here in the UK.

Seems the form is 5.50 from the Post Office, watch the price shoot up if we all have to start using it..

The important words being 'may not' it is all more speculation.
Worst scenario, it will cost people 5:50 for an international permit. I am sure those who can afford to drive to Europe in the first place can afford that.

What else would we expect swimmy, when we have wimps running the country. Their motto should be changed to "we take pride in turning the other cheek!".

Re: Driving Licences Now in the Firing Line.

I have had up to now 3 different driving licences, red book- paper and now ID card type. One more change won't make much difference. The original allowed me to drive a lot more motorised cars and the like than now , Yet never had any endorsements since my first licence in 1962.
