Oops, do they sell GB stickers at Folkestone? :Blush:
if you have modern number plates with the gb in the stars on blue on the plate you dont need one .
Hence why I need a sticker
almost any garage in uk carries them . petrol garage .
on the boat i,m sure they have them .
mind i have gone all over before now without one . bit like headlamp deflectors never use them . have some but try not to drive in the dark.
DO NOT !!!!! Like me..:Blush:
Buy a magnetic one, then wait till your on the Eurotunnel to put it on and it's only then that you find out your flash BMW has a "plastic" boot.....oh:
if you're on Eurotunnel, go to the customer services. they sometimes have free ones with their logo on. If not there is an AA shop at the terminal.
Sorted, AA shop had them and we bought the headlamp deflectors too although may not actually fit them yet :BigGrin:
only when travelling in EU countries Alan...
for example, Switzerland and Morocco, both require a GB sticker irrespective of number plate
but you knew that .. :Wink:
I didn't know that Jim.
Mind you, the only time I ever go to Switzerland is if I'm going to the bank and I try and do most of it on-line nowadays.....:thumb: :Rofl1:
i have one on my trailer . now have the newer number plates as well but for years never had either on the truck.
nobody ever said anything if i ran solo.
several of my mates have sc on their number plates . bet you cant guess where they are from .
SC = sunny cornwall. :BigGrin:
actually i,m wrong . they have sco.
we have kernow down here . use our own flag as well.
mebyon kernow is a growing party .
But is it recognised in Europe ?
thats not the question .
its recognized in brittany . and the basque area .
i was answering another question . hee hee .
its amazing how many you see over there without or with different badges and flag stickers . nobody really cares . till they have a lets grab some dosh day.
i get stopped every year for no seat belts , got twice in one day this year .
i dont require them so havent got them .
spain is getting hot for seat belts and children and dogs not being strapped in .
Magnetic ones get nicked,,,,,BUSBY:BigGrin:
I got a magnetic one for my Land Rover opp5 aluminium.
Got told somewhere that if you've got one of those red/white diagonal signs on your bikes/backbox you should have a GB sticker on that too. Not certain but I've stuck one on anyway.
When I was actually learning to drive, way back when cars were made of metal, we had a Vanden Plas Allegro (walnut dash, beige leather upholstery - gorgeous) anyway - magnetic number plates.
Driving up the hill out of Bewdley towards Far Forest (past the Running Horse for those who know it) wen the front one blew off ..... and I don't think I was going that fast LOL
There endeth the lesson !
