    - a friend is moving to study in Ireland. He's uk based and has a uk car/licence and insurance
    He will come back 3-4 times a year for family I'd expect

    Anybody know if there would be any issues with his licence or vehicle reg?
    Normal uk insurance would require a green card for 90 days but hopefully he can contact his insurance co and arrange "dual country" as he'll be back and forth.

    I wonder what his "permanent address" will be.

    Contradicts what some on another thread say,

    Just not sure about pinging between uk and Ireland - might be easier to claim uk residence.
    A Canadian friend has a uk car here and drives on a Canadian licence because she happens to go home often enough.

    Poor stalker mottie is determined to construct a fantasy.

    He does not know the difference between a permanent address and a temporary posting.
