Importing your own car
If you are bringing your car to the UK you’ll need to take certain steps immediately. You must also insure your vehicle before you drive it. Parking in London is often restricted so you should check that there will be somewhere to park your car when you are looking for accommodation.
To drive in the UK you may have to exchange your licence for a UK driver’s licence, or take a test to obtain a Great Britain issued licence. The rules depend on where you passed your driving test. You can normally drive on a foreign driver’s licence for 12 months, but you must check this.
