We live in Cyprus and return every summer to UK to pick up our MH for our 4/5 week trip to France. Our insurers are aware of our circumstances and we are fully insured using a family members address with his permission. When we moved abroad 10 years ago I checked with DVLA about changing my address and quite legally they told me I did not have to advise them of my change of address because I was going abroad. I was told nothing about not being entitled to hold a UK licence. Because the property we moved from which our licences are registered to has been sold and the only address we have is my relative`s, we planned to change them to that address but according to the form for doing so you have to be resident in UK for at least 185 days. How do fulltimers circumvent this issue because I am sure you don't want to apply for a local licence for each country you visit which is what I understand we are supposed to do? If you saw a Cypriot licence you would know why we don't want to change. BTW there is no problem driving in Cyprus on a UK licence.
