An update on 400mm Rear markers

Have you been wondering “are my 400mm rear markers still road legal?”

We have been ourselves the same question, so we have done some research and found the below statement from the NHVR.

The NHVR has agreed to extend the three-year transitional period for the transition to modern rear marker plates.

The transition was to allow older larger rear marker plates to be replaced with plates made from Class 400, Class 1A or UNECE Regulation 70 reflective materials. The transitional period was due to end on 31 December 2020.

NHVR Manager Vehicle Safety and Performance Peter Austin said the NHVR would move to a ‘grandfathering approach’ that would allow the industry to upgrade plates when they are next due for replacement, rather than a fixed transition date.

“We appreciate the challenges facing the industry and the wider community at this time and this is one of a number of measures we have implemented to assist,” he said.

The NHVR has undertaken a number of recent changes to assist operators during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, including protocols for driver facilities to remain open, waiving amenity restrictions on all curfew permits, extending supplementary work diary time limits and temporary changes to the National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme medical, training and face-to-face audit requirements.

The NHVR will provide an update to VSB12 to outline the change shortly – NHVR
