Brexit / expats driving in Greece

UK licence holders who live in the EU or EEA

If you are currently using a UK driving licence and live in an EU or EEA country, from 29 March 2019 you cannot use an IDP to guarantee that your UK licence will be recognised in that country.

If you wish to continue to drive, you should exchange your UK licence with a local licence, where this option exists.

While the UK is a member of the EU, UK driving licences are directly exchangeable for EU and EEA country licences. From 29 March 2019, in the event that there is no EU Exit deal, this licence exchange arrangement will stop. Instead you will need to re-take your driving test in the EU country where you live to be able to carry on driving there.

Hm, well, that's the official government advice. So, if there *is* an EU Exit deal all that might not apply, but time's tight and some folk might want to avoid any requirement to take and pass the driving test in Greece.

If you want/need to take your test in Greece these sites have mock theory tests that may be useful:

The Greek Driving Theory Test.
There are a whole series of tests so you can do it over & over again with different tests to practice / improve.
You need 29 out of 30 to pass.
On the below website, click the top left box to change it to English (if you want to), then the top right for automobiles.
It will give you the ones you got wrong at the end and the correct answers. The translation is quite iffy in places!
