Section 2 of the Motor Vehicle (international Circulations)1975

 

' 2.—(1) Subject to the provisions of this Article, it shall be lawful for a person resident outside the United Kingdom who is temporarily in Great Britain and holds—

(a)a Convention driving permit, or

(b)a domestic driving permit issued in a country outside the United Kingdom, or

(c)a British Forces (BFG) driving licence,

during a period of twelve months from the date of his last entry into the United Kingdom to drive, and, except in the case of a holder of a British Forces (BFG) driving licence, be employed in driving, in Great Britain a motor vehicle of any class which he is authorised by that permit or that licence to drive, notwithstanding that he is not the holder of a driving licence under Part III of the Road Traffic Act 1972. '

 

When you renew your UK driving licence a declaration of being  resident in UK is made

At the risk of getting yet another copy/paste of Section 2 of the Motor Vehicle (international Circulations)1975 , does the declaration specifically and/or automatically invalidate the non-UK DL?

Is that 'no' or an 'I don't know'?

 

Just trying to get a handle on how this can possibly be enforced.
