Green Cards

You may well have heard of Green Cards, which were re-introduced following Brexit. UK motorists needed to carry a physical Green Card as proof of third party motor insurance cover when driving in the European Economic Area.

Now, the European Union has confirmed it is waiving this obligation for drivers from the UK entering the EU.

The EU’s statement was issued in the context of finding solutions to implement the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland, and of course is of particular benefit to Northern Ireland motorists who travel frequently across the border.

However, the decision applies to all UK motorists travelling to the EU.

Therefore from Monday 2nd August 2021 it is no longer a requirement to carry a Green Card.
