DVLA quietly issued revised trade plate display advice applicable from January 2017.

As UK law applicable to 'Trade licences' and 'Trade Plates' and their display has not changed we must conclude that DVLA's revised trade plate display guidance is a reinterpretation of existing UK law.

Our current understanding is that the new  display advice is yet to be tested in Court whereafter the new advice may be judged absolute. The new advice may be found within.....
