New UK sticker to be required for driving in Europe.

UK identifier to replace GB from
28 September 2021

If you intend to drive to Disneyland Paris after the 28 September 2021 you will require a new car sticker for driving in Europe.

There have been a lot of big changes in travel between Europe and the UK since the end of the Brexit transition period, but now the British Government has introduced another – a new sticker requirement for British drivers.

If you intend to drive your British vehicle in France – or anywhere else in the EU – you will now need a “UK” sticker on your car.

This replaces the GB sticker or magnet that was previously needed when driving abroad, and the UK government guidance states: “If you have a GB sticker, cover or remove it.”

The new rule will come into effect on 28th September 2021 for British registered vehicles driving in the EU.

The government specifies: “You will need to display a UK sticker clearly on the rear of your vehicle if your number plate has any of the following:
GB identifier with the Union flag (also known as the Union Jack)
Euro symbol
National flag of England, Scotland or Wales
Numbers and letters only – no flag or identifier

“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.

The British government has also registered UK – rather than GB – as its new international symbol for traffic.

The UN said it had received “a notification stating that the United Kingdom is changing the distinguishing sign that it had previously selected for display in international traffic on vehicles registered in the United Kingdom, from ‘GB’ to ‘UK’”.

The difference between Great Britain and the UK is the inclusion of Northern Ireland – GB refers only to England, Scotland and Wales while UK is England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The new UK stickers will be available online, and in post offices and garages for around £2.00.

Clearly displaying the country of origin of your vehicle is an international requirement and if you are stopped by French police without one you can be issued with an on-the-spot fine

Although it’s unclear how bothered French police will be about the intricacies of UK v GB.
