Can I join on a Non-UK driving license?

Joining with a Non-UK Driving License? To do so you just take the same steps as a normal application by heading to and clicking 'Join' to apply online. 

Once your application has been processed, you'll be asked to submit some documents to get you on the road. 

  • You'll be asked to submit photographic evidence of yourself holding your driving license. Make sure that both the Issue Date & Expiry Date are clear and visible in your photos. 
  • Additional documents may be requested just to verify your details. These will be explained further by e-mail.
  • Make sure to send those over in an attached e-mail to in order for the team to check through your documents and get your account approved. This can take between 24-48 hours so its always worth applying in plenty time ahead of your planned trip. 

Please note that if your driving license doesn't contain either the Issue or Expiry Date, we may request you to obtain a Driving Record from the issuing country to approve your license. 

If you have any questions or issues with joining on a Non-UK (International) license, throw over an e-mail to who can help you out.
