No-deal Brexit may stall unprepared British drivers, Government warns

Mobile phones

A document released by the Department for Transport (DfT) states that your driving licence could "no longer be valid by itself when driving in the EU" and that an International Driving Permit (IDP) might be required at all times.

At present, motorists do not require an IDP to drive in European Union states.

"To avoid your British passport not complying with the Schengen Border Code we suggest that you check the issue date and make sure your passport is no older than 9 years and 6 months on the day of travel", the government warns.

The National Audit Office previously estimated that as many as 7 million British drivers would apply for new worldwide driving permits in the first year after a potential no-deal Brexit. The IDPs will cost £5.50 and be available from February 1.

"It's a sensible measure as a lot of people drive lorries and vans outside of the United Kingdom on their United Kingdom driving licence".

Meanwhile, the UK's traditional blue passports - much beloved by some Brexiteers - will start being issued from late 2019, the government states.

Brexit Secretary, Dominic Raab, said that the Government was aiming to get a Brexit deal with Brussels by mid-November 2018 at the latest, but was stepping up contingency plans in the event of no deal when the United Kingdom leave the European Union in March 2019.

- The UK Government will guarantee funding for all projects receiving grants from the EU's Regional Development Fund. The government played down fears that holidaymakers would be hit with swingeing roaming charges for using mobile phone in the EU.

Less clear, however, is what will happen on the free flow of data.

Even existing EU type approvals would have to be converted to United Kingdom approvals, although the government has confirmed that it would issue "provisional" approvals to manufacturers that already have European type approvals.

- United Kingdom firms working on the EU's 10 billion euro Galileo satellite navigation system could be cut out of existing contracts as well as barred from seeking new ones.

AA president Edmund King said: "This will be an extra burden for United Kingdom drivers wanting to take a holiday overseas".

Britain risks its first recession in nearly a decade if it drops out of the European Union without a deal, according to Moody's. "That's why we're putting so much effort into getting a deal over the next six to eight weeks".
