    Old dopey here ordered a GB sticker to put on the van.. Went out to pop it on and noticed the number plates have the blue band with the Euro GB emblem on them..
    I have put the sticker on but do I need both ?

    Don't think so but can't hurt.

    Im sure the GB emblem on the number plate would be accepted as well.

    not so John


    If you're driving in Switzerland your checklist requirements are:
    • A valid UK driving licence
    • A GB sticker on the back of your car - even if your car has 'Euro-plates' (number-plates that show a circle of 12 stars on a blue background)

    GB sticker
    You must display a GB sign - failure to comply could result in an on-the-spot fine.

    If your car has number plates that include the GB euro-symbol (Europlates) you don't have to display a conventional GB 'sticker' within the EU.

    In some countries outside the EU a GB 'sticker' is required even if you have euro-plates, so it is always safer to display one.
