DVLA is the body responsible for enforcing UK private number plates and car registrations regulations. Their head office is based in Swansea and due to all DVLA offices being shut as of December 2013 this is their only office. All UK private registrations plates need to conform to DVLA regulations. We adhere to all regulations regarding the display of car registration numbers of DVLA registrations. Platehunter highly recommend that you only deal with car registration companies who follow these car number plate standards and regulations. Contravening the DVLA registration plate guidlines can result in a substantial fine and the risk of having entitlement of your cherished number plate permanently withdrawn without compensation. Platehunter vehicle registration number plates are fully legal and in-line with the below DVLA car registration plate regulations.
Private registration plates can only be assigned to a vehicle which is registered, or about to be registered in mainland Britain (excluding Northern Ireland) and which is an appropriate age to receive the registration number. At the time of the assignment the vehicle must be licensed, of a testable type and have a test certificate in force, if applicable. Once you have assigned your number it may be transferred to another vehicle subject to the DVLA's transfer rules. It is an offence to mis-represent the registration in any way. You can make your car seem older than it actually is but you are not allowed to make it look newer. For example you cannot put a '11' number plate ona '07' plate car. Fancy or decorative fonts are also not allowed on a car registration plate. You are allowed to put a UK or EU flag on the side of the car registration plate, but other symbols such as logo or football teams emblems are not permitted. Standard font and a 3D variation are the only fonts allowed to be displayed on a legal car registration plate. The correct size and spacing of characters on car registration plates is also very important, guidline on this can be found on registration plates section of this website. This can also ensure that you are not pulled over by the police for incorrect/illegal displaying of your car registration number plate.
