Government reveals automotive guidance for no-deal Brexit

  • UK will still have to pay Brussels in a no-deal Brexit says Philip Hammond

The UK also faces being shut out of the Galileo satellite programme, its ships being forced to provide security information before docking, and requiring new auto safety certificates under a "no deal" scenario.

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.

Mr Raab said that two mobile operators had agreed to keep free data roaming.

However, British citizens would be saved from hefty mobile roaming charges, the United Kingdom government promised.

British drivers might need new driving licences in order to hit the road on the other side of the Channel in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the Government has warned.

You would either need the 1949 convention IDP - allows you to drive in Ireland, Spain, Malta and Cyprus (and it would last for 12 months) - or you would need the 1968 convention IDP allows you to drive in other European Union countries, plus Norway and Switzerland - (and it would last for 3 years, or until your driving licence expires). Their licences are considered equivalent to their European Union counterparts.

The retailer's statement did not directly cite Brexit as a factor in its falling profits but said that "cost price inflation from a weaker exchange rate" - which has been attributed to a Brexit-induced slump in the value of the pound - had been a predominant reason for pressure on its margins.


Raab was speaking ahead of a meeting of Prime Minister Theresa May's cabinet on the British government's planning for a no-deal scenario.

Irish citizens (document here) - British and Irish citizens can continue to travel freely between Britain and Ireland without seeking immigration permission.

It added that leaving without a deal would not prevent United Kingdom mobile operators making and honouring commercial arrangements with mobile operators in the EU.

The Confederation of British Industry said the notices showed the extent of disruption consumers can expect if "ideology wins over evidence".

There are also concerns about delays at the United Kingdom border.

The government says the current process for getting one type of permit over the counter at the 90 post offices it is available at "takes around five minutes on a turn-up-and-go basis". "So I think it needs to be ruled out".
