Driving on Secondment to the UK
Many companies have a workforce which includes overseas employees seconded to the UK on short-term contracts. We present the current rules for non-UK licence holders driving in the UK, along with the vehicle solutions available.
Driving in the uk on an international driving licence
To drive in the UK, holders of a foreign driving licence must be aged 17+ for cars and motorcycles, and 21+ for lorries and buses.
The duration of your employee’s stay in the UK, their country of origin and their insurance all impact their permission to drive in the UK on their current licence. Read on to learn more.

How can windsor vehicle leasing help?
If the secondment is for a fixed term of two years or more, we can arrange lease periods to match the time in the UK, with no need for a big initial outlay or worrying about disposal at the end. All you will need to do is arrange the insurance.
If the secondment has been arranged last minute or is for a shorter period… no problem! We often have vehicles in group stock ready to go either for the entire secondment period or just until your new vehicle arrives. Should our stock be fully utilised our short-term hire team can pull a vehicle in from the many partners that support us.
If you are unsure how long the secondment will last, that’s no problem either! We have a flexible leasing solution which offers short-term lease vehicles with contracts from as little as 1 month, with a rolling monthly rental – effectively a pay-as-you-go lease deal!!
No ownership option, Contract Hire; eligibility conditions apply. Terms and conditions apply, too – please ask for full details.
