It doesn't work like that. British licence can be exchanged for a local one without a test in a lot more places than the list of countries whose licence can be swapped for a British one. It just means that the standards of British driving test are seen as matching or exceeding local test standards, while the British authorities regard only a handful of countries outside EU have driving test that is as rigorous as in UK.
