UK’s Proposed Green Number Plates

Green number plates for ultra-low emission vehicles

The UK Government has announced that plates with a green flash, for electric zero CO2 emission vehicles, will be implemented soon, maybe as quickly as Autumn 2020.

Green plates are expected to have a green flash to the left hand side of the plate (as illustrated above).

Its aim is to provide a UK-wide mechanism which will enable people to spot and differentiate vehicles based on their environmental impact, help inform road-users and normalise the idea of clean vehicles on our roads. This plays an important part in encouraging road users to shift to cleaner vehicles. 

  • help local authorities visually identify ZEVs for the purposes of locally led policies and incentives, and local communication and awareness campaigns.

  • green number plates will only be available to vehicles with zero tailpipe emissions.

  • These will be non-mandatory; opt-out; available to new and existing qualifying vehicles. This includes eligible cars, vans, taxis, motorbikes, as well as buses, coaches, HGVs.
