The Christmas eve TT bun-fight in reference to Brexit and the validity of UK supplied drivers licence!

4 posts in this topic

So.. TT has got boring lately... Brexit this,... Trump that... blah blah blah blah ... blah!

 

I know the absolute correct answer is "No one knows yet, not untill the Brexit manifesto is revealed"...  but what do you lot think will happen with the good old UK drivers license?

 

As The UK tears itself away from Europe and the EU... Will the DVLA have to replace all Drivers Licences to reflect that it is no longer a legal EU valid permit... Will it remain an EU valid permit?

 

Will drivers of vehicles towing a trailer need to do a test in the UK to allow legal passage of car and trailer in the EU?

 

Lets hearwhat you chaps think...

Will You will need your Carnet de Passage en Douane (CPD) to tow your UK trailer again with LB plates. No one seemed to take much notice anyway. Collin Chapman made good use of it. F1 teams are going to be a bit cheesed off with the deposits never mind the smaller teams who will not have the backing of a major company like DHL to handle all the paperwork.

What is the new UK duty free limit same as current international flights. Be fun when they realise they voted for one bottle of wine and 200 cigarettes, never mind the WTO 32% import duty instead of the current 10 cents on cheap wine. My old mate will be happy with his van that was a tobacco pouch shorter on the inside than the outside. Until the day they measured it he did OK. Lucky he still had enough after the fine to build a posh nursing home.    

Tim Martin will be happy mind you on his wines the duty might be less.

From online. 

" Just to let you know, we received our CDP this week for our overland trip starting in September in Cape Town, and needed to pay €200,– instead of €600,– as mentioned (plus €3,50,– for registered mail inside Europe)." Only €200.

Existing privileges won’t be revoked and those with a licence currently valid in the EU will remain valid. 

 

New licences will not be valid in the EU, unless an agreement is made with the EU.

 

What will happen with renewal or replacement licences? That I don’t know.
