What Is The Difference Between Show Plates and Road Legal Number Plates

It is important to understand the difference between show plates and road legal number plates. Road legal plates have to display specific information related to what the company has manufactured the number plates and the materials used have to be British Standard approved.

Number Plates From 2001

Show Plate Example

Note: We do not supply show plates intended for road usage. Our show plates are manufactured for track days and shows only.

A show plate has no supplier information and due to this it does not conform to DVLA guidelines and should not be used on the road.

To Be A Road Legal Plate The Number Plate Must Follow DVLA Guidlines

Road Legal Number Plate Example

The number plate for road-legal use must have the suppliers details recorded and the British Standard supplier equipment provider details stamped.

Legal Car Number Plate

The centre information is related to the number supplying company and must contain the name and the postcode information.

The right-hand corner information shows the British Standards materials supplier details.

Please note: Concours plates will require the physical original documentary evidence to confirm identity and entitlement to the number plates before we can process a number plate order.

We DO NOT sell vehicle registrations. You have to already own the vehicle license registration number with paperwork.

To order we ask that provide a copy of a V5 Vehicle Registration Document and Driving Licence and you can process and order. We will then manufacture in advance the plates ready for collection where you must show the original documents.

We will not supply any number plate that does not conform to the legal format i.e. mis-spaced to look like a name of an individual, using non-standard fonts or colours. We do not allow a slogan or message to be printed anywhere on the number plate.
