New requirments for driving abroad after a no deal Brexit

Recommended Posts

a lot of maybes, plenty of scaremongering, and a whole load of new additional fees just waiting in the wings.

lets just hope we impose those same new tarifs on traffic entering.

It's project fear, innit ? The DVLA is part of it. Everyone one knows that everything is going to be just the same as before, only better. That's what 'taking back control' is all about.

Lot of fuss about nothing.  Scaremongering, as suggested by terryb.  They are talking about the same green cards etc we used to require before the open borders policy. 

No problem then and no reason why there should be a problem now. Especially in these days of instant communication, you would simply email your insurance company when you intend to travel, they email back the green card, and off you go.  Where's the issue?

No-one has mentioned the OGEL yet, but it seems unlikely that the France exemption will continue to apply and prior to the acceptance of open borders, there was a considerable difference between vehicles being driven or ridden internationally and those being carried as cargo. Motor vehicles being exported will be subject to the full paper-chase both to make it acceptable to the country being visited who will then have to document departure and of course provide proof on re-entry to the UK to avoid having to go through a NOVA procedure.

In the event of 'no deal', things will not simply go back to how they were in the 1970s,  there were agreements in force at that time and there is no time left to re-instate them. It will be more akin to exporting to Albania in the 1960s.

If the UK really does crash out at the end of March, then I wouldn't bank on being able to take an MV to France just over two months later.

The ending of the EHIC will mean that it is essential to have medical insurance and to have told insurers about medical history and any pre-existing conditions.

But hey-ho, such is progress.

Yes the subject of OGEL is on the MVT Facebook page, following clarification from the Government,  advise is that if the current OGEL exemption agreements are Not continued after march 29th  then All ex- military vehicles regardless of age going abroad for Normandy etc. should accordingly have an OGEL , an Open General Export Licence, ...yet  another document that may not ever be asked for, but you never know in the future when returning to the UK without one, ...as previously discussed on here, to register for an OGEL can be applied for  online
