Brexit and GB EU flags

Take a look at our news article, linked below, for the latest on showing GB flags on your number plates.


Are GB EU plates valid for international travel?

GB EU plates no longer act as a national identifier for foreign travel, and must be accompanied by a UK sticker for overseas travel from September 28th, 2021.

If your number plate includes the UK initials with the Union flag (also known as the Union Jack), you do not need a UK sticker. But 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 Euro symbol
  • GB letters
  • a national flag of England, Scotland or Wales
  • numbers and letters only (no flag or identifier)

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

If GB EU plates are already fitted to a vehicle and a customer wants replacement plates to match, can we still supply and fit a GB EU plate? Or is it that we cannot supply GB EU plates at all?

To match the end of the Brexit transition period, it became illegal to fit GB EU plates to any vehicle from 1st January 2021.
