Driving in the EU after Brexit: How will my Footman James policy be affected?

As the UK prepares to leave the EU, at Footman James we are doing our best to ensure minimal disruption to our customers.

While the UK formally left the EU on 31 January this year, the Government has agreed to a transition period which will last until 31st December 2020.
