Driving in the EU
You do not need an International Driving Permit (IDP) to drive in the EU, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland or Liechtenstein if you have a full, valid photocard driving licence issued in the UK.
You may need an IDP if you have a paper licence or your licence was issued in Guernsey, Gibraltar, the Isle of Man or Jersey. For further information, consult the government website or the embassy of the country you are visiting.
If you require an IDP, you must first determine which of three kinds you need by using our country checker. You can then apply from participating branches. Our branch finder will help you find which branches offer this service.
You will need to bring your full, valid driving licence, your valid passport (for paper licences) and a passport standard photograph.
