Why Bother?

Getting specialist electric car number plates isn’t compulsory. It’s not law. Nothing will happen if your EV doesn’t have them. But, you might decide it’s worth having them fitted after considering the potential benefits a green number plate might bring. If you already own an electric car and it doesn’t have a green number plate, you can get one fitted. This isn’t just restricted to electric cars, but buses, vans, taxis, HGVs and motorcycles. However, the vehicle must be a pure electric model, with zero CO2 tailpipe emissions, to be eligible for a green number plate. You can’t get a green number plate if you have a hybrid or plug-in hybrid vehicle.

Green number plates will help local authorities design and eventually implement new policies to the benefit of electric car driver.

Local authorities are considering a number of schemes that would benefit drivers with green number plates, including:• Free entry to Clean Air Zones• Cheaper parking• Use of bus lanes
So if you have an electric vehicle it makes sense to have a green number plate and matching screws to attach it with.
