The Road Haulage Association (RHA) has come to the understanding that after Brexit, UK drivers and hauliers will no longer need an insurance ‘green card’ should they be travelling in an EU member state. The RHA seems to be pleased with this.
In a statement the RHA said: “The Department for Transport confirmed this in a letter to the Association of British Insurers (ABI) on 17 May. Although still to be confirmed by the European Commission, if passed it will avoid a huge bureaucratic headache for hauliers, drivers and insurance companies by avoiding the use of green cards and checks at borders.”
RHA policy director Duncan Buchanan commented: “We welcome the clarity the Government is giving on this issue. This is one of hundreds of technical and bureaucratic issues we hope will be resolved in coming months. Clear and simple rules will benefit UK and EU drivers and operators, and we hope negotiations will result in practical solutions the work for all people and businesses.”
