You can trust Tennants to bring clarity to the current media confusion on identifiers with our easy to understand number plate side badge range.

Several recent newspaper articles have highlighted concerns raised by the AA about the Government applying to the United Nations with a view to changing our country identifier from GB to UK. If confirmed, the change will be implemented from the 28th September 2021 and has already prompted debate and a flourishing misinterpretation of the rules for number plates.

Not to worry; Tennants have got you covered. As recently introduced to our customers, our triple category side badge range will accommodate all requirements:

  1. National Flags: Country Identifier & Flag on Blue Background
  2. ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicles): Country Identifier & Flag on Green Background
  3. Foreign Travel: UK Identifier with Union Flag

To be clear, our National Flags and ZEV range is fully legal for UK roads. But you would need a separate GB (or UK) Oval for driving abroad. Whereas the Foreign Travel range allows you to take your vehicle into Europe without a sticker. And don’t forget white Oval UK Stickers are now available from Tennants too.

Got it? Phew. As ever, we’ll keep you updated.
