Driving licence

I live in Luxembourg with a valid driving licence issued by the United Kingdom. Will I still be able to use my UK driving licence after Brexit?

Yes.

However, if the Withdrawal Agreement is not ratified, the European regulation currently in force will cease to apply after the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU. Accordingly, your UK driving licence will be considered as having been issued by a third country to the European Economic Area.

As such, your valid UK driving licence must be converted into a Luxembourg one within 12 months oh the withdrawal date. Driving licences corresponding to categories A and B will be converted without further formalities. Holders of category C and D licences must pass a practical driving test in order to convert their driving licences. The precise terms of conversion are detailed here.  

Please note that it is also possible to exchange your UK driving licence for a Luxembourg one before the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU. In this case, holders of category C and D licences will not need to take a practical driving test in order to exchange their driving licences. The precise terms of exchange are detailed here.

I hold a valid UK driving licence and I plan to travel to Luxembourg as part of my vacation or business trip. Will I still be able to use my UK driving licence after Brexit?

Yes.

If the Withdrawal Agreement is not ratified, the European regulation currently in force will cease to apply after the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU.

Since the United Kingdom is, like Luxembourg, a contracting party to the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic of 8 November 1968, you will be able to continue using your valid UK driving licence during your travels in Luxembourg after tue United Kingdom's withdrawal from the EU.
