    EFP & UK drivers license validities

    I assume when the UK leave these items may be invalid in mainland Europe as they have the Euro stars on them and I suppose they will both need to be reapraised legally mandarins get your pencils sharpened.

    BB, I'd write to your MP and MEP about this as they need to sort it out. Just as they need to sort out the needs of those of us currently working in Europe. I've sengt you a PM.

    Well I drove in Europe with my UK driving licence before we joined the EEC no problem. After we were in the EEC I hired a car at Frankfurt airport and drove through Germany and Switzerland on my Saudi licence no problem. Don't look for problems which are unlikely to exist.

    All those tourists from all over the world manage fine. The bottom line is just that. If you bring in money and help the bottom line you will be accomodated.

    But the license shows the stars of Europe which will be history so the UK will need to reissue all of the millions of them with the monarchs head or whatever???
    Just my take on it.

    Can we not leave the minutia of leaving to the relevant authorities, there are no problems yet apart from those you are looking for. I'm sure a few stars on the driving license will not suddenly mean you cannot drive with it, the license indicates that you are allowed to drive certain types of vehicle having passed a test of competency in your own Country, not that you have passed a test in every Country in the EU. The license will still contain the same information plus a few stars, up until I moved at the end of last year I still had my old green driving license, no stars but it did not stop me driving.

    No stars on my driving license! Can we have our proper blue passports back? ( I do realise that there are an awful lot of people here who don't realise we used to have a blue passport)

    Not quite so. My non-EU wife resides with me, in France, on the basis of EU Directive 2004/38 "Free Movement Rights". Her French Residence Card is due for renewal in September 2016. Now that renewal should be for a minimum of five years and, optimally, ten years. So that will go beyond any "Brexit" date.

    As a British Citizen I work in France under those same rights requiring no work permit. And when I come back to the UK with my wife she does so under the same EU Directive. Sadly JAYB it is a lot more than minutia. As currently, under French law as it applies to non-EU citizens, I will post-"Brexit" require a work permit.
