Check if you need a test

You must test negative for coronavirus before you travel from the UK to:

• Denmark
• France
• Germany
• Netherlands

Check FCDO travel advice for any country you’re planning to enter.

You must take the test before you leave the UK. You’ll need to show your certificate of proof of a negative test at the UK and EU border, as well as to the carrier.

You must do this if you’re:

a heavy goods vehicle (HGV) driver or HGV crew
a van or other light goods vehicle (LGV) driver
It applies to both UK and non-UK drivers.

If you test negative, you’ll get a certificate of proof. You’ll need to show this before you can leave the UK.

You can get a free coronavirus test if you’re a professional coach driver who is driving abroad for work.
