Brexit – How will this affect AA Customers

We’re working with our Insurance partners on the provision of Green Cards for customers should a ‘no-deal’ Brexit take place.


Important Information


  • Green Cards will not be necessary until October 31st at the earliest.
  • At present, all AA Motor Insurance customers can drive their vehicles to the UK, including Northern Ireland, under the EU Motor Insurance Directive.
  • If a ‘no-deal’ Brexit takes place, then the Motor Insurance Directive will no longer apply to the UK. In that scenario anyone who drives their Irish registered motor vehicle in Northern Ireland, or other parts of the UK, will need to be able to demonstrate to law enforcement agencies that they have valid motor insurance. This can be done through an internationally recognised insurance document called a ‘Green Card’.
  • It is also our hope that a Brexit deal will be reached which will avoid the need for Green Cards to be provided. However, in case a ‘no-deal’ Brexit were to occur, we are making the necessary preparations for the delivery of Green Cards to our customers.
  • Based on the current timeline Brexit is scheduled for 31st October 2019.
  • Should the date of Brexit be delayed then the requirement for Green Cards will also be pushed back.
  • We will begin issuing Green Cards to customer based in Cavan, Donegal, Monaghan, Leitrim, Sligo, Louth and Meath, 5 working days before Brexit, if a no-deal is imminent. This is to ensure our customers have the required documents on time.
  • If you are an AA Motor Insurance Customers and are planning to travel to Northern Ireland or the UK and are not from one of the above counties, please click ‘request a green card’.
