Plating and Speed Discs

Plating and speed marking requirements for agricultural vehicles.


From a road safety perspective, and also to protect Ireland’s road and bridge infrastructure, vehicles  including agricultural vehicles must adhere to specified weights and speed limits.



To aid compliance and effective enforcement of these limits, agricultural vehicles are required to be appropriately plated and to display a speed disc indicating the maximum design speed for which they have been rated to travel at.
