Green Cards won't be needed to drive in the UK 23.08.19

GREEN Cards will no longer be needed for those driving Irish registered vehicles in the UK, including Northern Ireland, if there is a ‘no deal’ Brexit. Valid Irish insurance discs will be accepted as proof of insurance for Irish registered vehicles, following detailed discussions between the Motor Insurers’ Bureau of Ireland (MIBI) and the UK Department of Transport.
A Green Card is an internationally recognised insurance document which demonstrates to law enforcement agencies that valid motor insurance is in place.
The UK Department of Transport has now confirmed that law enforcement authorities in the UK, including Northern Ireland, will accept valid Irish insurance discs as proof of insurance for Irish registered vehicles.

However, in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit, Green Cards will still be needed for UK registered vehicles visiting European Union countries, including Ireland.
Speaking about this development, MIBI Chief Executive, David Fitzgerald said, “This is really positive news which should come as a relief to anyone who needs to travel to the UK, including Northern Ireland. Valid Irish insurance discs will now serve the same purpose as Green Cards. Effectively that negates the need for additional documentation for any Irish registered vehicles travelling to the UK, including Northern Ireland, in the event of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.”
