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. If you were younger than 67 when you became a resident, you can drive on your EU licence until you’re 70. If you were 67 or older when you became a resident, you can drive on your EU licence for 3 years after that point.


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.
