General vehicle markings guidance:
All livery on vehicles should comply with the Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations & Road Traffic Act. These are quite complex and have been amended and excepted at various stages to accommodate applications in the emergency service market. The Vehicle Technology & Standards Division (VTS) deals with the amended Road Vehicle Lighting Regulations 1989.
- The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989 (Base Regulation): SI 1989 No.1796
- The Road Vehicles Lighting (Amendment) Regulations 1994: SI 1994 No. 2280
- The Road Vehicles Lighting (Amendment) Regulations 1996: SI 1996 No. 3016
- The Road Vehicles Lighting (Amendment) Regulations 2001: SI 2001 No. 560
Alternatively, you can consult The Encyclopedia of Road Traffic Law and Practice, published by Sweet and Maxwell. This publication is continually updated and Volume 4 contains the Lighting Regulations. This publication should be available at most city libraries.
