Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Driving in France after Brexit?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Dear all,

Read this on the BBC news page today. We’re driving down to Val d’Isere on the 22nd March returning on the 31st March. Just wondered if any others were in the same/similar position?

Here’s part of the article:

At the moment, UK driving licences may be used to drive anywhere in the EEA (this is the EU plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway).

If Theresa May's withdrawal agreement is passed, UK licences will still be valid for visiting EEA countries.

If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, then the situation gets complicated.

The government will try to do deals allowing UK licences to be recognised for visits to Europe. But if it doesn't manage to do so, then drivers will need an International Driving Permit (IDP) for all EEA countries except the Republic of Ireland. IDPs can be bought at Post Offices for £5.50. You may also need to carry your UK driving licence.

Thanks.

Although I am getting an IDP too, it’s now looking unlikely that we will have left before the ski season is over.

If you dont have a photo card licence you have in theory always needed a IDP as you need the photo to prove you are indeed you

I’ve got the old paper licence and no trouble hiring cars in France with this and a passport. Asked the local car hire company in France about hiring cars after Brexit and if I needed an IDL, he just shrugged and said the paper one would be fine, how this translates in reality after Brexit would possibly be a different matter altogether I imagine.

Wasnt really talking about hiring cars with them as they will have your ID with your credit card, I meant actually driving, the police can demand you have either a photo licence or a IDP, I have driven loads of times and this year was the first time Ive bothered to get one after checking the legal position, a lot would depend on how stroppy the cop that checks you wants to be as to whether you get fined

Depends on the country. In general, no, an EU format paper licence is fine anywhere in EU. In practice, Slovenia and a couple of other countries already obliged all drivers to have photo licence before they joined EU, and technically that law remains valid after joining.
