Are ECMT permits not required now?

You only need your UK Licence for the Community if your journey is between the UK and an EU country, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland. You do not need an ECMT permit.

You can also use your UK Licence for the Community to carry out 2 cross-trade jobs (moving goods between 2 countries) in the EU, but you need an ECMT permit if you want to carry out a third cross-trade job.

The ECMT permit will let you carry out 3 cross-trade jobs between any ECMT country.

You can use ECMT international road haulage permits for journeys between 43 ECMT member countries.
