Got our driving permits today at our local post office, all we needed was driving licence passport size photo and £5.50 each the lady at the counter then did it all for us no forms to fill, had both of them with in 15 mins and they are valid for 3 years. if you check On the post office web site it will tell you your nearest branch that issues them

You might be jumping the gun on this. Yes it may be needed if there is a NO DEAL Brexit, but if a deal is agreed it will probably not be required.
Of course if you live here you should now change your licence to a Greek licence.

Anybody visiting Greece from the UK arriving before 29 March but will be there after that date driving, I would advise spend the £5.50 and get an IDP just in case there is a 'No Deal' scenario.

If there's no deal we'll also need full travel/health insurance as EHIC cards will no longer be valid and a visa: ... is-no-deal

Let's just hope for No Brexit!
