New provisions on the conversion of driving licences issued in the UK

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport responds to numerous questions issued by the Offices of the DMV regarding the possibility or not to recognize driving licenses for conversion issued by the United Kingdom following Brexit.

On December 31st, 2020, the transition period during which it was possible to continue to apply the existing EU legislation to British licences ended.

From January 1st , 2021, however, the provisions for non-EU licences will be applied to British licences. It will therefore no longer be possible to accept applications for conversion, except for applications submitted by 31/12/2020.

The Ministry also informs that negotiations are already underway with the British authorities in order to re-establish, for conversion purposes, the mutual recognition of driving licences between Italy and the United Kingdom.
