After March 29, 2019 - when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union - drivers may be required to use an worldwide driving permit (IDP) in Europe, as is now required when driving in some countries outside of the continent. The revelation comes at a time when manufacturers are preparing to launch a series of EV models on the market, while a "super credits" system will offset conventional vehicles, the aim being to encourage a rise in the sale of electric cars.

Both sides need a broad overall agreement to keep trade flowing between the world's biggest trading bloc and the United Kingdom, home to one of the world's top two financial capitals. The guidance said: "The UK does not require visiting motorists, for example those coming to the UK on holiday or who wish to drive on business, to hold a separate IDP to guarantee the recognition of their driving licence".

They follow a similar batch published last month, which are meant to inform businesses and citizens on steps they would need to take in the event of a no deal.

Moody's said today: "The immediate impact of a no-deal Brexit would likely be seen first in a sharp fall in the value of the British pound, as was also evident after the 2016 UK-wide referendum on whether to remain in or leave the EU".

RAC Europe spokesperson Rod Dennis said: "Research we conducted showed that drivers are concerned that the ease, and relative affordability, of driving across the Channel will be eroded from next March". They also warn that if negotiations with Brussels fail ex-pats might be forced to retake driving tests after March next year, as their United Kingdom ones will no longer be valid. In a no-deal scenario, telecoms operators would still be able to operate cross-border services as well as operate within the European Union, under the WTO's General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS).

New blue passports will not be available to travellers until at least six months after Brexit, it was revealed yesterday. An IDP may also be required for United Kingdom drivers hiring vehicles when in the EU.

For the public, Thursday's notices covered more mundane issues; the government said British drivers might need to obtain an global driving permit to drive in the EU.
