No Green Card needed to Drive in the UK

Drive to Northern Ireland with your Insurance disc

In the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit, any Irish registered vehicle driven in the UK, including Northern Ireland, will no longer require a Green Card if it has a valid Irish insurance disc.  The insurance disc will serve as proof of insurance to the legal authorities in the UK, including Northern Ireland. Motor insurance discs for fleet vehicles will also be acceptable as proof of insurance within the UK and Northern Ireland.

What if I don’t have an Insurance disc?

Also, for vehicles exempt from carrying discs such as motor-cycles and certain agricultural tractors, the UK will accept Irish Motor Certificates.  Alternatively, a Green Card also remains acceptable as proof of insurance in the UK. However, it should be noted that UK registered vehicles will still require it if travelling to EU member states, including Ireland after a ‘no deal’ Brexit.
