The UK government has announced today that in the unlikely event of a “No Deal” Brexit your UK driving licence may not be valid by itself in the EU after March 2019. UK drivers may have to get an International Driving Permit (IDP), which has to be carried along with your driving licence. You may also need an IDP to hire a vehicle when you are abroad. There are two types of IDP required by EU countries. You would need both types if you were visiting EU countries covered by different conventions – for example France and Spain. So you would need your driving licence and both types of IDP.
