A Classified unnumbered road, or Class III road, is a category of road in the United Kingdom, recognised by the Department for Transport. Local Highway Authorities are permitted to create their own local designations for such roads, which remain officially unnumbered at a national level. As the most common approach is to use C number designations, these roads are often referred to as "C-roads".

Designating or de-designating a road as "classified unnumbered" requires the approval of the Secretary of State for Transport.
