    Number plate with GB is legal in EU countries ..

    If going to Switzerland or any other non EU country you need the GB plate

    Clipped from AA Web Site

    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.


    For other items you might need, visit the AA web page below, but remember the list is not exhaustive some countries (Spain for example) have specific requirements. Many experienced MH'ers will be along shortly to add to the list.
