There are two easy methods for fitting your plates. View the video’s below and decide which one is best for you

METHOD 1 – FITTING USING STICKY PADS

TOOLS NEEDED

  • Three Sticky Pads from fitting kit
  • A Phillips Screwdriver

HOW TO FIT

  • Remove the caps on your existing plate.
  • Unscrew the screws affixing the old plates
  • Now your old plate has been removed, take the three sticky pads from your fitting kit and stick to your new number plate in three equally spaced positions – one at each end and one in the middle.
  • Carefully align where you want your new plates to go on your vehicle.
  • Then carefully remove the second lot of backing from the stickers so the adhesive pads are tacky and ready to be affixed. Then press the plate firmly to the vehicle to stick.

METHOD 2 – FITTING USING SCREWS

TOOLS NEEDED

  • A Drill
  • A Phillips Screwdriver

HOW TO FIT

  • Remove the caps on your existing plate.
  • Unscrew the screws affixing the old plates.
  • Place the old number plate on top of your new one and use it as a guide to measure where the holes need to be drilled (into the new plate). Then lay the new plates face down and the old ones on top – drill through the holes and into your new plates.
  • Fix the plate to your vehicle using the screws – tighten to secure the plate securely.
  • Place the caps over the screws and press firmly. Remember to colour code your caps – so if where you have drilled is yellow, use the yellow caps, if it’s black, then use the black caps. This will make your numberplate looks untouched and cover up any of the marks made by drilling the plate.




How number plates work in the UK?

The requirement for registration or number plates to identify individual vehicles has been enshrined in UK law since the Motor Car Act of 1903. Increasing numbers of cars over the decades has meant the system has had more than one revamp. The current format provides the area of registration, the date of registration indicated by two numbers and then finally, three random letters.

Which number plates are illegal?

A number plate is illegal if it doesn’t follow exactly the specific regulations laid out in the legislation. There are very precise requirements for font, character sizing and spacing. A number plate is also illegal if it is obscured by dirt and essentially illegible or cracked or chipped. Failure to clearly display a legal plate can result in a hefty fine of £1,000 and may constitute an MOT failure.

Why are number plates yellow and white?

The standard issue in the UK is white on the front of the vehicle with black characters and yellow to the rear, also with black characters. White and yellow backgrounds are the clearest distinguishable options for black lettering allowing them to be easily read and at distance. It is also illegal to show a white light to the rear of a vehicle at night which is why the yellow plate goes on the back of a vehicle, the definition of ‘light’ does include reflectors.

Are Private Number Plates a good investment?

Spot a rising trend or bag yourself a popular name and a private number plate can be something of a goldmine. As with many things, a private number plate is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it but get two keen parties in the same room and who knows where the bidding will end up. Plates with a universal appeal will have a broad marketplace but there are niche plates which can sell well too, after all, you only need one buyer.

How to fit your number plates

Number plates can be attached to the vehicle with screws but more popular now is the use of adhesive tabs which are double-sided and very sticky. These are easier to use and quicker. There is also the option of number plate surrounds which are great if you are alternating between a standard registration and a private plate.
