Transport in Minibuses

Good practice Transport

Did you know that if you drive abroad, your vehicle must now have a UK identifier?

If your number plate has any of the following:

  • a GB identifier with the Union flag
  • a Euro symbol
  • a national flag of England, Scotland or Wales
  • numbers and letters only – no flag or identifier

you must display a UK sticker clearly on the rear of the vehicle.  If you are driving in Spain, Cyprus or Malta, you must display a UK sticker no matter what is on your number plate. If you have a GB sticker, you must cover or remove it before driving outside the UK.

We have amended OEAP National Guidance document 4.5b Transport in Minibuses accordingly.
