The Government remains committed to securing an agreement for UK licence holders resident in Italy, to exchange their UK driving licences for those of Italy without the need to take an Italian driving test. The UK already has similar arrangements in place with 24 other EU countries.

Government officials have engaged frequently in discussions with Italy on the terms and nature of arrangements for UK licence holders resident in Italy since the UK’s exit from the EU. While those discussions are ongoing, UK licence holders can continue to use their UK licence until 31 December 2022, or for 12 months from becoming a resident in Italy, whichever is later.
