Bicycles: Registration

Question for Department for Transport

UIN HL5880, tabled on 2 February 2022

To ask Her Majesty's Government what consideration they are giving to mandatory number plates for cyclists.

Answered on

The Government currently has no plans to introduce number plates for cyclists. The absence of a number plate does not prevent a cyclist from being liable for their actions. For those who do not adopt a responsible attitude, or if their use of the highway creates an unsafe environment, there are laws in place that can make them liable for prosecution. Enforcement of cycling offences is a matter for the police.
