A tweet send by Grant Shapps, UK Transport Secretary at 18:30 on New Year’s Eve. THe phrase better late than never springs to mind!
Welcome news for UK drivers 🇬🇧 🚙. We’ve now secured agreement with all 27 EU Member States to recognise UK licences WITHOUT the need for an International Drivers Permit. From tomorrow, UK drivers can continue to drive in the EU without an IDP (once Covid restrictions lifted).
