Could You Spot An Illegal Number Plate or Are You in Danger of being Fined?
Could you spot an Illegal Number Plate if you saw one? On this page is an explanation of what to look out for and what not being aware could cost.
How do you know it’s road legal?
When purchasing a new vehicle most of us spend time checking that it’s mechanically sound and has a valid MOT and service history. However, it may not cross your mind to find out whether the registration plate meets the legal requirements. Those thinking of adding a private number plate should also be aware that it must comply with rules set out by the DVLA. Anyone found to be displaying an illegal number plate could well see it withdrawn with no reimbursement and/or receive a fine of up to £1,000.
Below are just a few important considerations to bear in mind when buying a new car or number plate.
