I hope to live aboard within the next 6-12 months, and intend to cruise the Med initially. I currently hold a UK driving licence, which I would like to retain. I will have addresses that I can use in the UK (parents) but I intend to officially become a non-resident of the UK for tax purposes. How have other people in this position dealt with the issue of retaining a driving licence? Would obtaining an International Driving Permit help? I have checked the RAC, AA, etc. websites, and they only offer 1 year IDP. Has anyone used the companies on the internet that offer 10 and 20 year IDPs? Would you recommend them? Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
