Driving in the EU after Brexit - Green Card


Important changes when taking your vehicle outside of the UK from 1st January 2021. 

What is a Green Card?

Until recently, UK drivers entering the EU needed a Green Card to guarantee that the motorist had the necessary minimum motor insurance cover for driving in the country being travelled to.

Do I need a Green Card?

From 2 August 2021, UK drivers entering the EU will not need a Green Card.

You'll still need to ensure you're legally covered if you’re planning on riding or driving in the EU. Please check your policy documents to find out what you’re covered for.
