Monaco’s Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office is harmonising the format of licence plates for two-wheelers. For any new registration since March 1, the square format for motorcycles, tricycles, mopeds and quadricycles has been replaced by a rectangular plate.
The new format will also apply to two-wheelers that are already on the road. All owners of vehicles affected by this change, registered before March 1, 2018, have received a letter inviting them to replace their licence plate before August 31, 2018. More information: firstname.lastname@example.org or see the government's website for details about vehicle registration.

The Monaco Yacht Show is constantly evolving, and this year the Quai des Etats-Unis will represent a major change, with more segregation of exhibitors. The extension of the T central dock will be removed to make space for an entirely new quay on the northern part of the show.
“The organisers of the MYS will take advantage of the restructuring of Quai des Etats-Unis in Port Hercules by the Principality of Monaco to improve the visit experience of the show’s private clientele by giving priority to the presence of yacht designers, builders and brokerage houses in front of their superyachts on display for sale or charter,” the event committee said.
There will be more emphasis on clients, rather than the B2B element. Luxury manufacturers and service suppliers will be housed in the Parvis Piscine tent, while nautical suppliers will be in the Darse Sud tent and Quai Albert 1er.
The Monaco Yacht Show takes place from September 26 to 29.
