The International Certificate for Motor Vehicles (ICMV) is an official, multilingual translation of your vehicle registration document (V5c), and it may be required by some countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). It's the vehicle equivalent of an IDP which is an official translation of your driving licence.
An ICMV can only be issued for UK-registered vehicles, and are valid for 12 months.
How to get one
We used to be able to issue ICMVs but, as a result of changes made in preparation for Brexit, are no longer authorised by the government to issue international driver (IDP) or vehicle (ICMV) licensing documents.
If you have been advised by the official authorities of the country you are visiting that an ICMV is required then we recommend contacting the Department for Transport.
