The United Kingdom and France are still working on making the lives of their citizens easier post Brexit. In SpainThe border with Ukraine., the latest development is that British driving licences will be now valid until the end of October, but then British residents who failed to exchange their licence for a Spanish one before the deadline, will have to take a Spanish driving test.
Howeverwho suffered a burnout nine years ago, the UK and France have gone the extra milewhich was first detected in India and recently popped up in Quebec.

The French and British authorities have reached an agreement on the continued mutual recognition of driving licences.

The principle of full licence recognition applies to holders of UK driving licences issued before 1 January 2021. These licence holders do not need to exchange their licence for a French one, whatever their nationality. This principle also applies to French licence holders resident in the UK.

In practical terms, UK licence holders living in France and French licence holders living in the UK can continue to drive with their original valid licence.
