To ask Her Majesty's Government (1) what discussions they have had, and (2) what conclusions have been reached, with the EU regarding the reciprocal recognition of driving licences post-Brexit.
In the negotiations on transport which are due to commence shortly, we will be seeking a deal to ensure the mutual recognition of UK driving licences to ensure that UK motorists can continue to drive in the EU after we have left. Such a deal is in the interests of both sides.
However, irrespective of the outcome of our negotiations, our ratification of the 1968 Vienna Convention and 1949 Geneva Convention will ensure that UK licence holders can continue to drive after exit throughout the EU and EEA using an international driving permit document if necessary.
