So what can you do to design the perfect set of registration plates for your vehicle? There are actually many rules and regulations of there that make it extremely difficult to make certain personalizations without running the risk of being pulled over by the police and being on the end of a fairly hefty fine. This fine could actually go up to about £1000. Firstly, to ensure that your plates are fully road legal, you would have to make sure that you are purchasing for a legal number plates supplier. They have been given the relevant authority to be able to print, manufacture and deliver custom number plates to their customers.
When you order from a company like this, they will require to see documentation that proves that you own the right registration on the plates that you are trying to purchase, they would also need an ID. The reason that this is in place? This is actually to keep your number plate safe and ensure that no-one else is able to purchase your plates, and display them on their vehicle in order to commit crimes, posing and you! People often think that they are able to purchase show plates, this is fine if you are wanting to display something like ‘JENNY’ or ‘MY CAR’, but if you are purchasing plates that display a legal registration, this is no longer considered a show plate.
When it comes to personalizing your number plates, there is a huge range of specifications and options that you can choose from to ensure your number plates are completely bespoke to you, all while being road legal and MOT friendly. If you own a vehicle that has a large recess for the rear bumper, you would be able to purchase a ‘shaped plate’ that is larger than a regular number plate and is laser cut to fit the contours of the recess at the rear of your vehicle. You can also choose from a range of text styles, and as long as the characters can be considered black at face-value, you can have some funny in the finishing or surroundings, again ensuring your plates are like no others!
