    gov.uk have issued yet another revision of their advice on licences needed for driving abroad.

    Hopefully this is the final version.

    https://www.gov.uk/driving-abroad/international-driving-permit

    The possible effects of Brexit (if it actually goes ahead) feature heavily - but the info is useful for those who travel further afield too.

    Personally I haven't felt the need for an IDP for the last 30 years or so - and have found that the authorities everywhere are happy enough to accept a UK photocard licence - even if they are on the list of countries that require an IDP

    That may change of course as feelings are high.

    I'm pleased to see that the 1968 version lasts for 3 years.

    It's a low-tech cardboard covered booklet that looks exactly like it comes from the 60s.
