Aviva Customers with a UK / NI driving licence

Important information from the Road Safety Authority

If you or a driver named on your policy holds a UK or Northern Irish drivers licence, the Road Safety Authority has requested that we share some important information regarding the status of UK/NI driving licences within the Republic of Ireland, now that the UK has left the EU.

The Road Safety Authority wishes to advise policyholders and drivers, resident in Ireland, with a UK/NI driving licence of the importance of exchanging their licence for an Irish one.

  • Anyone resident in the Republic of Ireland who holds a UK/NI driving licence must exchange it for an Irish one before the 31st December 2020.
  • After this date, in the event of the EU and UK failing to agree a trade deal, an existing UK/NI licence will no longer be valid to drive here.
  • It is important that you exchange your licence now to be certain that you are legally entitled to drive on Irish roads after December 31st 2020.
  • By exchanging now you could avoid possible lengthy delays and the likelihood that you will not have a valid licence after December 31st 2020.
  • More details on how to exchange your licence and how to book an appointment at your nearest NDLS centre can be found at www.ndls.ie.
