Why buy replacement plates?
Many customers choose us when they require replacement plates. Replacement plates are purchased for many reasons. It’s common for people to buy replacement number plates when their original plates have been damaged in accidents or have become unreadable due to wear and tear. If your plates do become unreadable, you will need to buy replacements to avoid substantial penalties. You may be fined up to £1000 if you don’t have legal plates with the number clearly visible, so don’t take the risk. What’s more is that you could fail your MOT if your plates are displayed illegally.
No need for documentation
One great reason for choosing GB Show Plates when you require registration plates is that you don’t need to send us any documentation so your plates can be produced. This means you don’t need to worry about your documents being lost in the post, and you can save a great deal of time, money and stress. This makes the whole ordering process so much smoother. What’s more is that our prices are up to 50% cheaper than what you can expect to be charged by leading high street registration suppliers.
The online plate maker
Our online registration plate maker is a simple resource that you can use to design your plates. All you have to do to ensure your plates are road legal is select the ‘road legal’ option when you are using the plate maker. By doing this, you can reduce your design options down to those that comply with DVLA requirements. All our plates are built to British Standard and made from tough ABS. It is possible to include approved flags as images on road-legal registration plates. There are four fonts to choose from when you are designing road-legal plates, and you can also add certain flags, text and borders.
A simpler fitting process
You can order a fitting kit with your number plates. As our plates don’t come with pre-drilled holes, you have the option of using screws or applying your plates with specially designed sticker pads. The fitting kit vastly reduces the time and effort involved in adding your plates to your vehicle. We can also help you if you have purchased a bespoke private licence plate and wish to have it added to a plate. We are also able to supply bike plates and are able to offer competitively-priced international shipping for customers outside of the UK.
The reasons for registration plates
Registration numbers and plates were first introduced in the UK in the early 20th century to ensure all the vehicles on the road could be identified. Registration plates make it easier for the police and other authorities to track down vehicles and their drawers after accidents and motoring offenses have taken place. To understand the purpose of registration numbers and plates, think of them as passports for your vehicle
