Frequently Asked Questions
Are the plates road legal in the UK?
Yes! All of the plates that we supply are 100% road legal.
What are showplates?
Show Plates refer to customised number plates that are not road legal. They are primarily used for display purposes on vehicles at events, exhibitions, or showrooms, rather than for regular road use. Show plates often feature unique designs, fonts, and logos that are not compliant with the legal requirements for standard number plates.
Unlike standard number plates, show plates do not conform to the regulations outlined by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) in the UK. These regulations specify the size, format, font, and spacing requirements for number plates that are legally allowed on the road. Show plates may deviate from these standards by incorporating decorative elements, unusual characters, or altered spacing that would not be permitted on a road-legal number plate.
It's important to note that using show plates on public roads in the UK is illegal. Displaying non-compliant number plates can result in penalties, fines, or even the confiscation of the plates and the vehicle's registration documents. Therefore, show plates should only be used for display purposes and not while driving on public roads.

Standard UK sized plates measures 520 mm x 111 mm (20" x 4.3") are are provided by default unless selected otherwise.
