    i see the ´´usual suspects´´ are trying on the ´´you cant use you GB licence and you need to pay (us) to get it sorted for you.
    For the millllllonith time 
    1. IF YOU HAVE ANY  EU DRIVING LICENCE IT IS VALID TILL IT EXPIRES OR 1/1/33 
    2. THE FACT YOU DONT LIVE AT THE ADDRESS ON IT IS NOT IMPORTANT 
    3. YOU HAVE TO CONFORM WITH SPANISH MEDICAL TESTS

    I didn't know til this year that you are meant to carry ID with you at all times in Tenerife. I never carry ID. Don't know anyone who does.

    nope the UK is NOT  in schengen ,so it is treated the same as if you went to china or south america .also EU people can use their ID cards (the italian one can be got from the post office for €20 and is a single sheet of A4 paper to get into the UK ,but because there are no UK ID CARDS you require a FULL 32 PAGE PAPER PASSPORT to get back in your own country ...which in all europe you have to have even on the beach ,,,,

    china or us tourist require a single visa to visit ALL the countries in the EEA ,got from any of the EU embassies in their country ,but require a totally seperate one to vist the UK ..

    im afraid IRELAND is stuck with the CTA otherwise you would have to have major border posts between NORTH and SOUTH ,but where it can it has gone it alone .EURO/KM/NUMBER PLATES ..i look at IRELAND now as to where SCOTLAND will be in 2025 ..the UK is the only country that will not be in the euro in the future as even danmark is fixed to the euro in all but name ,,,
