To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what his Department's regulations are for GB stickers and vehicle licence plates for travel abroad; and if he will publish the impact assessment that preceded the recent change of that designation from from GB to UK.
12 July 2021
We have made no changes to the regulations on number plates which continue to allow motorists of vehicles registered in Great Britain to display:
UNITED KINGDOM, United Kingdom or UK
GREAT BRITAIN, Great Britain or GB
ENGLAND, England, ENG or Eng
SCOTLAND, Scotland, SCO or Sco
CYMRU, Cymru, CYM or Cym
WALES or Wales
All options remain available to motorists. A UK sticker or identifier is only needed for those travelling abroad.
As there were no changes to regulations, an Impact Assessment has not been prepared.
