UK driving licenses will not be valid in Ireland if no-deal Brexit goes ahead

You will need to change to the Irish equivalent as soon as possible.

Motorists with UK driving licenses are being warned that they will not be valid in the case of a no-deal Brexit.

If this is the case for you, you will have to apply for the Irish equivalent.

National Driving Licence Service said:

"In the event of a no-deal Brexit the driving licence of a UK licence holder living here in Ireland will not be recognised and the driver will not be able to continue to drive here in Ireland on that licence.

"The advice to such drivers is that they should exchange their UK driving licence for an Irish driving licence before the 29 March 2019, which is set as the withdrawal date of the UK from the EU.

"There are some limited exceptions where what are known as national licences categories cannot be transferred to the Irish licence."

Otherwise, if you want to exchange your licence you must complete a licence application form which you can find here.
