Anyone living in Ireland who holds a UK (including Northern Ireland) driving licence must exchange it for an Irish driving licence, before the 31 October 2019, in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal. If there is a no-deal Brexit, then after this date, their UK driving licence will no longer be valid to drive in Ireland.

Exchanging a UK driving licence can be arranged at any of the 36 NDLS centres. An appointment can be made online at or a walk-in service is also available, but there can be significant wait times for those without appointments.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us on 090 6492640 or your insurer directly who will be happy to help.
