BEST number plates and surrounds PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!

number plates and surrounds


A great way to improve the appearance of your vehicle is to change the number plates and surrounds, but you also need to be careful because there are strict rules over what is permissible. Here we explain more.

Buying new number plates and surrounds

When it comes to buying new number plates and surrounds, there's a wide range of opportunity to do something unusual but there are rules over what's allowed. It's important to appreciate that all vehicles require number plates in the UK by law. The number plate must be displayed at the back and front of the vehicle, except for motorbikes, and the rules for the manufacture and the display of the plate have been laid down in law. Failing to comply with the laws on number plates and surrounds could leave you to risking a fine plus the number plates will be removed from your vehicle. Essentially, all buyers of number plates need to appreciate what the legal requirements are before making a purchase.

A new number plate

It's also important to appreciate that your vehicle needs to be registered officially with the DVLA and the certificate of registration or entitlement will then be used for the registration process of a new number plate. Once the vehicle has been registered, then the vehicle owner is free to choose a standard number plate or a personalised number plate - these are also known as cherished number plates and come from a DVLA-registered supplier. The supplier will also need to meet various rules on selling new number plates.

Since 2001, all number plates in the UK must conform with the law which lays out the exact specifications of the display and manufacture of the official number plates. This law applies to all standard, new and cherished number plates, though if your vehicle was registered before 2001, then you may be able to continue using number plates from before this date even though they may not conform with the current rules. Essentially, all number plates need to comply with a set format. The first two letters refer to the area in the UK, where the plate was first registered. The year reveals the date the plate was issued and the remaining letters are issued randomly though it is possible to buy personalised plates with initials or names and the DVLA has regular auctions of unusual and memorable number plates.

Legislation covering number plate surrounds

There's also legislation covering number plate surrounds to restrict how a motorist showcases their sense of style or personality. There's a British Standard that all the surrounds need to comply with and the surround will include the border, frame, bottom text and badges. Some may opt to use the European or British flag on the side of their number plate and there's a line for text in the bottom. Frames are also a popular choice for plates surrounds and can be in a choice of colours, so you can get one to match the colour of your vehicle.

Searching for number plates and surrounds

If you are searching for number plates and surrounds, it's important that you source quality parts from a reputable supplier to comply with the legislation and the MorePartz site can help.
