According to the latest Brexit papers, British driving licences will not be valid in the EU if no deal is reached. Britons may need to obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) instead.
Main takeaways from No Deal papers:
Multiple driving licenses for EU road trips
Access to EU space programmes lost
‘No guarantee’ of free-roaming
On the upside, blue passports coming from late 2019

The paper on driving adds: “Your driving licence may no longer be valid by itself when driving in the EU. If you move to another EU country to live, you may not be able to exchange your licence after the UK has left the EU.”
Visitors to Britain with EU driving licences will “enjoy the same arrangements as today”.
Meanwhile, people holding EU driving licences will be able to drive in the UK without requiring any extra paperwork. “The UK does not require visiting motorists … to hold a separate IDP to guarantee the recognition of their driving licence.”
