Will EU citizens with pre-settled or settled status be able to use their European driving licence to drive in the UK?
Yes, currently, you can drive in the UK on your full, valid driving licence from an EU country. You can drive until you’re 70. However, if you got your EU driving licence by exchanging a non-EU driving licence, then you can only use this to drive in Great Britain for 12 months.
You can exchange your EU licence for a GB licence if you wish to - for example, if you need a GB licence for your job. You do not have to retake your test to do so. More information on non-GB driving licences can be found here. This information may be subject to changes depending on the partnership between the EU and the UK and future regulations.
