Valid Green Cards will also be accepted by the legal authorities in the UK, including Northern Ireland, as proof of valid insurance cover. However, anyone with an Irish registered vehicle who has a valid Irish insurance disc will not require a Green Card.
For anyone who does intend to use their Green Card as proof of insurance cover, it is important to note that Green Cards are associated with specific motor insurance policies and are specific to individual vehicles. Therefore, they expire at the same time as the policy that was in place when the Green Card was issued.
If you renewed your motor insurance policy or changed your car since you received your Green Card from Allianz then it may no longer be in date. You should check the expiry date listed on your Green Card to be on the safe side.
