The National Driver Licence Service (NDLS) is issuing a final reminder to anyone resident in Ireland with a UK / NI driving licence to submit their applications to exchange it now as time is running out. As it can take up to 10 days to process a UK / NI licence exchange, and there may be further delays caused by a last minute increase in applications, the NDLS cannot guarantee that any person applying in the second half of October will receive their Irish licence before Brexit day.
