A valid International Driving Permit is required should a foreign licence be in any language other than English. Non UK licence holders who have resided in the UK for more than 12 months need to have passed the UK driving test and possess a full UK licence. Please contact us if you need further information.

If your UK driving licence is illegible, has been de-faced, has been mislaid you may present an alternative photographic identification, such as your passport, and your driving licence number.
