Motorists will need a new international driving licence to use their cars in the EU, in the event of a no deal Brexit.

If Brexit talks collapse then the EU could refuse to recognise UK driving licences, a Department for Transport document will state.

Drivers will need an international driving licence before travelling driving their vehicle in the EU from March 29th.

It would also be required to enable a driver to hire a vehicle or to obtain insurance unless Brussels or individual member states decide against it.

An EU notice issued last month said: “A driving licence issued by the UK will no longer be recognised by the member states.”

What could make the entire proceedings more complicated is the fact there are two types of permit and different versions for individual countries.

Currently motorists are allowed to drive in EU countries using their UK driving licence, although certain places require individuals to purchase an international driving permit.

There are an estimated 11,600 lorry drivers that the change will affect immediately every day, not to mention the volume of tourists travelling abroad.
