GOV.UK website has guidance for drivers from the UK driving in most European countries
From 2nd August 2021 you do not need to carry a green card when you drive in the EU (including Ireland), Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia, and Switzerland. You still need valid vehicle insurance to drive in the EU and it's wise to check with your insurer that your policy has extra cover for things like theft or damage to your car abroad. You may need to carry a green card to drive in other countries.
