Green Card Update

Published by System Admin at 8/19/2021, 11:10:00 PM

CourtsThe EU announced on 30th June the decision to waive the requirement for drivers from the UK to carry a physical Green Card when entering the EU, and this will come fully into force on 2nd September.

The UK will be part of the "Free Circulation Area", and a list of the countries that are a party to this is below. There is a small number of non-EU European countries which are not a party to the agreement and these are also noted below.

Although a Green Card will no longer be required for travelling within the "Free Circulation Area" motorists should still carry their Certificate of Motor Insurance as evidence that they have cover. More information can be found on the Government website: https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-insurance/driving-abroad
