No need for 'GB' stickers when driving in the Republic
THE Republic's transport minister has confirmed it will not be necessary for Northern Ireland drivers to display a 'GB' sticker when crossing the border after Brexit.
The minister said the purpose of the stickers was "largely to identify a vehicle as visiting rather than as based in the jurisdiction".
"However, there is no offence of not having a sticker of this kind in Irish road traffic legislation," he said.
Sinn Féin MEP Matt Carthy said "common sense" had prevailed.
"Beyond the political importance this is a practical concern for hauliers and many other drivers and workers," he said.
“There are still questions over insurance and driving licences that need to be resolved – I urge anybody living in the south with British licence to transfer it to an Irish licence as soon as possible to avoid any potential difficulties."
