Do I need a Green Card if I’m travelling abroad?

No. As of the 2nd August 2021, the rules have changed for UK drivers taking their cars to Europe, and you’ll no longer need a Green Card to be able to drive your car in the following countries:

  • the EU (including Ireland)
  • Andorra
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Iceland
  • Liechtenstein
  • Montenegro
  • Norway
  • Serbia
  • Switzerland

If you’re planning on taking your car to a country not listed above, you may still need to carry a Green Card as proof that you’re insured to drive in that country. You can check the travel advice for the country you’re travelling to here.
