GB sticker


Recommended Posts

Hi there, having just bought my Lexus CT200h, I am driving down to southern France next Thursday.  I need to place a GB sticker on the rear of the car and was hoping a magnetic one would work but it doesn’t as I assume the rear end boot area is aluminium.  I don’t like the idea of sticking something on the bodywork but will need to do it.  Can anyone, from experience, recommend the least damaging of stickers ?  Thank you

I do know that the GB signs are being replaced by UK signs in acknowledgment of Northern Ireland. Not sure when this is happening.

Hi, is the ct200h boot aluminium? 

It looks as though a preference for non magnetic material would be to use an electrostatic GB sticker for rear glass that would be removable. 

You would need to check if putting in window comply with EU law, it looks like it does

Ricky, I did not think that GB signs on their own were having to be replaced.

I thought that GB signs when included with EU signs (as many have been) meant the entire registration plate having to be replaced as GB was no longer wIthin the EU.

Where replacement was necessary then UK was being introduced.

Am I wrong ?

Thanks for the advice everyone.  I’m going for an electrostatic sign for the rear window.  On investigation it seems acceptable.

aha            BUT do you think anyone has told the gendarmes and border force police and that they will worry about such a challenging crime of non compliance with a " sticker " of such gargantuan significant proportions when faced with beligerent United Kingdom travellers ☠️

rather than concerning themselves with the non GB or UK stickered migrants in death defying travel crossing the English channel

Here's a summary of the rules: https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/tips-advice/106045/driving-europe-after-brexit-what-are-new-rules

Your number plate can't have the EU stars on it, if it does you need the black and white GB oval for the time being.

The sticker on the license plate either has to have only GB on it, or GB with the union jack, that is until Sep 28th where UK replaces GB.

Time your border crossing during lunchtime and there will be no one there

That gives you a three hour window. They like their lunchtimes.

thankfully I hadn't thought to travel thru' France or europe until at least next spring / summer ...  by then we'll all be extra penalised for Boris not coughing up the extra £5bn that Macron et al NEED to balance the books now that we have left them in the lurch having to pay for the " largesse " of the eu civil servants salaries and future-proofed pensions .....  and increases in coffee break cost 

let's wait and see ..............  unless the French fishing fleet block the eurotunnel somehow AND the Calais ferry station ........... :unsure:

Yes I believe both the bonnet and rear hatch are aluminium on the CT.

They certainly are on these.
