UK-enlisted vehicles would be required to display a GB sticker in the Republic of Ireland subsequently after the Brexit, the administration has said.
According to the new administration advice, it said the sticker is required to be presented in any EU country.
Motorists from the UK, who are driving in the Republic are presently recommended to present the sticker, but this regulation is not broadly authorized.
This advice is applicable to cars registered in all parts of the UK as well as in Northern Ireland.
The sticker, a white oval containing the letters ‘GB’, representing Great Britain, must be shown at the back of the vehicle.
Great Britain does not include Northern Ireland but comprises of England, Scotland and Wales – yet the GB sticker is used for cars from all parts of the UK.
This regulation is applicable to drivers even if their number plate embraces a GB logo.
Paul Maskey, Sinn Féin MP for West Belfast, alleged he would not be exhibiting any of the stickers on his car.
Numerous nationalists in Northern Ireland, recognize themselves as Irish rather than British, as a result, raised protests on social media on requirements to have a GB sticker.
Seamus Leheny of the Freight Transport Association reprimanded the guidance as “paltry”.
