Changes to number plate requirements - Post Brexit.

vGroup International is urging fleet decision-makers, whose company car drivers are due to take their vehicles abroad, to ensure they remain compliant post-Brexit.

We are advising customers that after 31st January 2020 all vehicles, regardless of identification on the number plate, must display a separate GB identifier.

Following Brexit, UK drivers will need to display a GB sticker on the rear of their vehicle when travelling in the EU, even if the vehicle has GB number plates. The GB sticker, which has always been an alternative to the GB identifier, will be required to fulfil all Vienna Convention obligations regarding the vehicle’s country of origin.

Martyn Nash, chairman of vGroup International, which currently supplies number plates to the fleet market through its vPlate division as well as all key vehicle accessories, said: “It is essential that fleet operators and company car drivers think ahead about what documentation is needed when taking a vehicle abroad".
