New Numberplate Law in EU

New Numberplate Law in EU

DRIVING IN THE EU – UK stickers and number plates

Having received an update from the UK Government, from 28 September 2021, you need a UK sticker instead of a GB sticker.

If your number plate includes the UK identifier with the Union flag (also known as the Union Jack), you do not need a UK sticker.

However, you will need to display a UK sticker clearly on the rear of your vehicle if your number plate has any of the following:

·         a GB identifier with the Union flag

·         a Euro symbol

·         a national flag of England, Scotland or Wales

·         numbers and letters only – no flag or identifier

If you’re in Spain, Cyprus or Malta, you must display a UK sticker no matter what is on your number plate.

You do not need a UK sticker or number plate to drive in Ireland.
