Chapter 8 chevron kits are a must for any works vehicle that will be travelling on highways and entering works sites around the country. These ready to apply kits help to keep whole fleets safe and help to maximise the safety of other road users too.
Manufactured from high quality reflective and fluorescent materials, Chapter 8 rear chevron kits from Fleet ID limited comply with Chapter 8 of the DFT Traffic Signs Manual – your fleet is safe in our hands.
• Conspicuity markings can reduce accidents, can save lives and improve the visibility of the vehicle.
• Fewer accidents mean less downtime, less contracts missed and savings on repair costs.
• Reassure and motivate your workforce by taking their safety seriously and meet the highly recommended best practice guidance of TSM Chapter 8.
• Protect your company against potential legal action related to third party safety.
Whether you have 2 or 200 vehicles in your fleet, choosing the right type of Chapter 8 kit for your needs is really important. It’s easy to get this right, we just need to answer a few questions first…
What type of roads will your vehicles be used on – roads with speed limits of under or over 40MPH?
Knowing this helps you to decide which material is best for you.
What type of coverage do I need?
We supply full rear, half rear or full glazed Chapter 8 kits – just see which you think best suits your requirements.
What type of application is best for me?
All of our rear chevron kits are easy to apply, but we have planked, flooded separate and flooded applied to choose from. There is also a magnetic option for those who need the kit to be popped on and off the vehicle as and when required.
Choose from 3M, Nikkalite, Avery and Oralite refelctive materials
You can order full rear, half rear or full glazed kits from Fleet ID Limited – the choice is yours!
Whether you’re looking for a quick and easy installation, or a kit that can be used as and when needed, we have the kit application for you.
Half Rear coverage only covers the vehicle below the rear window. This is standard coverage for cars, but may also be required on vans too. This allows the rear windows to be free from livery, whilst still providing excellent reflective visibility to other road users.Find half rear kits for you fleet here

Our Chapter 8 kits are supplied edge sealed which stops all dirt and water penetration to the cells in the panel ensuring there is no block to the light source. This keeps the reflective to the proper standard for its intended purpose.
Our Chapter 8 kits are really easy to apply. The reflective and fluorescent vinyl is self-adhesive and can be applied using a squeegee. Preparation is key to a successful chevron kit application, so please make sure you follow the guidance on the application guide that will be delivered with your kit. There are also instructions in the leaflet regarding cleaning and suitable environment for fitting too.
If you would prefer that we do the fitting for you, please contact us on 0344 2098775 for more information about our professional fitting service.
Standard delivery is up to 5 working days, but faster deliveries are available. Please visit out Deliveries and Returns page for further details.
If your rear chevron kit needs to be Chapter 8 compliant (i.e. suitable for Highways use) please choose 3M Diamond Grade or Nikkalite Crystal Grade. Both of these materials are fully compliant with Chapter 8 of the DFT Traffic Signs Manual. Oralite 6900 will also be available as a buy online option soon, as another Chapter 8 compliant material.
A Nikkalite FEG rear chevron kit would be suitable for this usage, as it provides extra visibility, but does not comply with Chapter 8 guidance. All of the chevron kits that we supply can be manufactured from Nikkalite FEG and there is another non-compliant reflective material – Oralite 5200 RapidAir – that will be available as a buy online option soon.
Yes – our magnetic Chapter 8 kits are perfect for this. The Chapter 8 kit is produced and applied to magnetic rubber for a really easily removable Chapter 8 kit. Before you order a magnetic rear chevron kit please check that this would be suitable for your vehicle (some vehicle rears are made up of many plastic parts, so are unsuitable for magnetic options).
We can also manufacture a fully removeable version of any of our Chapter 8 kits by placing the fluorescent and reflective markings onto a removable vinyl. This would last up to 12 months and is perfect for lease/short term hire vehicles. For further details, please call our team on 0344 2098775.
Yes – Highways compliant door lozenges are supplied as standard and at no extra cost with every Chapter 8 kit you order. Door lozenges are a very important part of your reflective vehicle markings – no kit is complete without them!
To order replacement panels, call or email into the office with the order number for that particular kit. We will aim to deliver all replacement parts within 3-4 working days. We are developing the opportunity to order replacement parts on the Chapter 8 section of our website (for panelled kits only).
