Avoid on-the-spot fines with mandatory headlamp converters & GB Sticker.

Product description

By European law UK drivers must fit both headlamp converters & GB sticker to their car. Buy them today from the RAC shop and avoid those on-the-spot fines. Plus, learn all you need to know about driving in Europe with our ‘European Motoring Legal Requirements and Emergency Information’ leaflet, which comes completely free.

Driving In Europe

If you are planning to drive to Europe you will need to fit headlamp converters and the GB sticker to your vehicle when you arrive. As UK car headlamps are designed for driving on left-hand side of the road and Europeans mostly drive on the right-hand side you will need to adjust your headlamps to avoid blinding oncoming traffic. Part of the Driving in Europe range, our RAC headlamp converters are suited for all UK vehicles to help you do this. Purposefully designed to meet EU standards, with simple to follow instructions and easy to fit to your vehicle, they will direct your headlight beam safely away from oncoming traffic and ensure a safe journey for both you and other road users.

Likewise, if your vehicle has neither the GB symbol nor Euro-symbol on your number plate you must by European law display the GB sticker on the rear of your car when driving in Europe. Failure to do so can result in an on-the-spot fine. Even if you have a Euro-symbol on your car it is still mandatory for some countries outside of Europe for you to display the GB symbol. If in the unfortunate event you are involved in an incident the GB sticker allows the local emergency services to quickly identify your country of origin and will help them give you the appropriate assistance.

Alongside the headlamp converters, as part of the Driving in Europe range, our RAC GB sticker will make sure you have the correct symbol for driving in Europe. Designed specifically to meet the legal requirements of the1949 Road Traffic Convention, all symbols are one to three letters, in capital latin characters, painted in black on a white background in an elliptical form with a minimum height of 80mm and a stroke width of 10mm.

How to position the GB sticker

We include a Euro symbol GB sticker in this pack for application to your registration plate when travelling within Europe. (Please note that when travelling outside Europe, it is a legal requirement to display an appropriate oval-shaped GB sticker.) Vehicles travelling within Europe not displaying the Euro symbol are required by law to display an oval GB sticker.

They do the job required.

Sticker is fine and went on to plate easy. Headlight converters were easy to position and even though one had problem with adhesive, stayed on for 2 week trip.

I followed the instructions but one converter fell off within 24 hours, in dry weather. <br/>Far too expensive to RAC member!

The instructions were incomprehensible. I know that now I'm over 70 I look back to better advice and assistance but I have been an RAC member for over 50 years and this is my worse experience to date. <br/>I think that the sticky substance should have stayed with the converter; it stayed on the card. <br/>I could not locate where the silver dot should be located and the converter would not stick to the headlamp. The whole product was not fit for sale.

I don't appreciate receiving 8 emails asking me to complete this survey!

The small silver dots had no adhesive and so were useless, and one beam converter fell off after just a few miles, despite the lamp being well cleaned before attachment. Totally useless product, and left us illegal in Europe

You need clearer instructions on how to apply; we stick the first one on upside down!

ALL GOODS NOT DELIVERED. HAD TO CHASE UP TWICE VERY POOR SERVICE WOULD NOT USE AGAIN.

Backing on headlight converters was difficult to remove, causing damage to converter. This meant it was difficult to apply and fell off after two weeks.

The headlamp converters were far too sticky and I can't remove the sticky marks.

Much better than the competitor articles currently on the market.

The converters work well once applied but are difficult to separate from the backing with the adhesive intact. They are also easy to remove from the headlights after use.

Did the job

As expected

Did not think these were as easy to fit as others I have used. May be me, and an inability to change.
4 out of 5
Converters worked, but it should be made clear that this is a one-trip disposable item and can't be peeled off and re-used again.
4 out of 5
Once you get the hang of how to apply the beam deflectors they are quite easy to apply. Take care to read the instructions thoroughly, as it's a one time only application! Must have worked, as I didn't get any annoying 'flashes' from the French or Belgian motorists!
