Driving with International driver licence non-exchangeable in UK

We're waiting for ganesan to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency,

Please help with my query regarding driving in UK with International driver licence non-exchangeable after 12 months. if a person leaves UK after 12 months and comes back to UK after 2-3 months (say in a different/new visa), is the person allowed to drive in UK for another 12 months before requiring to get the full UK Drivers license?

Yours faithfully,
Ganesan

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your enquiry received on 28/12/2017.
Your case reference number is 00410389.

I appreciate you contacting DVLA to seek clarification on the matter.

The rules for driving in GB as a visitor depend on the type of licence you
currently hold.

You can drive cars and motorcycles shown on your driving licence for up to
12 months from when you last entered GB (as long as the driving licence
remains valid). 

If you also hold valid lorry and bus entitlement you can only drive these
vehicles if they have been registered outside of GB and temporarily
imported. 

I hope this answers your enquiry.

Do not reply to this email. If you wish to contact us again about this
response then please use our [1]reply form link or copy and paste the

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your enquiry received on 28/12/2017.
Your case reference number is 00410389.

We appreciate that you have taken the time to contact us once more in
relation to this matter.

Please share the below information with your son.

I'm sorry, it may help to explain that we can only issue or renew driving
licences with a GB address.  

As you now live permanently outside of GB, we can’t issue you with a new
driving licence.

For clarification on what steps you need to take next, you should check
with the driving licence authority in the country your in to confirm
whether your licence is valid for use there.

If you return to live in GB as a resident in the future, you may apply at
that time.

The renewal should be done as soon as possible on your return, because
driving in GB with an expired photocard licence is an offence, which could
result in a fine of up to £1,000. Road traffic enforcement is a Police
matter.

If you need proof of your entitlement to drive, you should use our [1]View
Driving Licence service. 

This service is free, easy to use and available 24/7.

You can access this by using either your licence number or personal
details along with your National Insurance number and the post code which
appears on your licence.

Please make sure they can accept this method of confirming your driving
licence details. 

If you're unable to use this service, please call us for further
assistance.

You can call our Contact Centre on: 

(+44)300 790 6801
Monday to Friday 8am to 7pm and Saturday 8am to 2pm.

Please note that if we cannot provide this information online, a
certificate can be sent to you via fax or post. When you call you will
need to provide us with the non GB fax number or postal address. 

It may help to clarify that to avoid further reminders if you wish to
surrender your entitlement to drive you can return your existing driving
licence with a signed covering letter to: 

DVLA 
Swansea 
SA99 1AB.

If your licence has been lost, please explain this in your covering
letter.

I hope this helps you with your enquiry.

Do not reply to this email. If you wish to contact us again about this
