Post-Brexit Green Card Advice

After 31st December 2020, you will be aware there is some important information your clients should know about before driving in the EU if there’s no deal between the UK and the EU. Some laws might change and you clients may need to carry a Green Card to drive a UK vehicle legally in the EU.

They won’t need a Green Card for any trip that ends with a return to the UK before 11pm on 31st December 2020, as this is the first date a no deal Brexit could occur.

If a Brexit deal is agreed then there will be no change to today’s position and they will be able to move around Europe in the same way as they can today, although they should still contact you to make sure they have the right cover for them (other than for journeys to the Republic of Ireland, where they are covered as standard). They would not then need a Green Card.

In order to facilitate continued movement on the island of Ireland in the event of a no deal, we are automatically supplying clients living in Northern Ireland with a Green Card. If you are made aware that any of your other clients require a Green Card in the event of a no deal Brexit, please contact a member of the Existing Business team and they will arrange this for you.
