GB Car Sticker No Longer Recognised in Europe

Posted in General News on Tuesday, October 5th, 2021

The original GB sticker, which once displayed, allowed motorists to drive in Europe is no longer recognised by the European Union (EU). Motorists driving their UK registered cars in Europe will now either need to display a new UK sticker or get their number plate changed to have a UK symbol displayed on the left-hand side. Any penalties for non-compliance will be under the control of specific countries. However, Halfords has warned that anybody not displaying the correct UK sticker or number plate could be refused entry. RAC Spokesperson, Rod Dennis commented: “It might only be a matter of replacing two letters, but this is a significant change for drivers who in normal times take their cars outside the UK. Any driver with a GB sticker on their car now needs to replace it with a new UK one if they are taking their vehicle abroad. Drivers also need to remember that number plates featuring the blue band and letters 'GB' next to the European golden stars are also no longer valid.”
