An agreement has been reached with the German authorities with regards to acceptable documentation and ID plates for UK trailers that are consistantly pulled by foreign subcontracted traction.


From mid August changes will be made to the “Certificate of Keeper” documentation that will eliminate the problems perviously encountered in Germany and elsewhere.  


Many of you will be aware of the problems that have arisen, particularly in Germany when a UK trailer is being towed by a foreign tractor unit, because UK & Northern Irish trailers are not registered and foreign tractor registration plates cannot be displayed on the back of the UK trailer.    


Lengthy discussions with the German authorities and the UK DfT have resulted with the following accepted procedure.


A new revised Certificate of Keeper will become available from the DVSA mid August. This new certificate, along with a ‘Show Plate’ displaying the trailer’s UK ministry number is accepted by the German government.


The Department for Transport recommends the following approach:

(Please note that this plate will be a ‘showplate’ and not a legal UK number plate. It in no way affects the legal obligation to display a standard format number plate required by UK authorities)

•  The ‘showplate’ should be a square plate with 4 characters on the top and 4 characters on the bottom.

•  The ‘showplate’ should be white with black characters

•  The ‘showplate’ should be displayed on the uppermost part of the trailer on the left or right hand side.

•  The ‘showplate’ should not be displayed near the existing legal number plate required by the UK authorities .

•  There should also be displayed the international registration country code (“GB” is the official code for UK vehicles).  (RHA note:- And we suggest using the oval GB stickers over the EU member state ones, as post Brexit, these may not be acceptable.

An example of the recommended plate format is shown below.

We will advise when the applications for the new certificate can be made.
