Don’t Panic But… it’s Brexit Day!

Speedyreg – Brexit Day 2020

Yes, it’s the day we thought would never arrive. Do you remember voting in the referendum back in 2016? Whether you voted leave or remain, many of us are now united in being pretty much fed up of the whole thing and just want it done and dusted!

When it comes to the repercussions of Brexit, no one can really say with any certainty how it will affect the country in the long term, and of course those of us who live here. Some say it will bring great benefits for Britain, while others foretell a massive economic downturn. But however things turn out, as has been the case over the last few years, when it comes to leaving the EU, nothing is ever done in a hurry! So there’s really no need to panic as everything is set to stay the same for quite some time yet while new agreements are drawn up. EU laws will still be in place despite the fact that we are no longer an EU member. The transition period is set at 11 months, however, it can be extended by up to 2 years, and if the previous Brexit timescale is anything to go by, this is a distinct possibility. So there’s no need to panic that your holiday flights will be cancelled or to rush out and stockpile food ahead of a shortage.

Brexit and Number Plates

The good news is that Brexit is not going to impact our number plate system and if your plate has the EU flag symbol on it, you can still legally have this on your vehicle, so changing your plates won’t be necessary. However, after the transition period, if you take your car outside of the EU you will need a GB sticker displayed on your vehicle. In addition, to travel outside of the EU for a holiday or short stay, a visa waver will be required, similar to the ESTA we purchase when travelling to the US, and this will be available for a small fee.

Celebrate Brexit with an EU OUT plate

Thrilled to be leaving the EU? Or simply pleased that the whole process has at least moved forward somewhat.
