Getting number plates made up
You can only get a number plate made up from a registered number plate supplier.

The supplier will need to see original documents that:

prove your name and address
show you’re allowed to use the registration number

Im surprised this seller hasnt been busted.

Thanks OP. Need one for my caravan.

Whats the hassle in taking a v5 document. Its a legal requirement for a reason in that it stops criminals from easily obtaining car plates to be used in fraud & theft etc.

Maybe yours will be copied and used now they have your details

to be fair that be possible from any dodgy garage in the land. its just to get my car through the mot not really fussed.

As far as I am aware, the plates must have the supplier's details on them, (under the number), which the advert says they have, but the supplier must be registered with the DVLA for the plates to be legal. I cannot see how this supplier can be registered with the DVLA if the supplier is not carrying out the necessary checks on vehicle ownership. If the plates do not comply with the DVLA regulations, it might result in the vehicle failing the MOT, and could result in the vehicle owner being prosecuted.

Both of my cars have passed MOT test with ebay plates. KwikFit and a Vauxhall dealership did the tests.
Do you really think the MOT tester will have an exhaustive list of approved plate makers!!

That should be interesting.
There is a serious reason why these sort of companies should not be allowed to break the law though. If someone has a similar make and model car to yours, and orders plates with your reg number, then sticks them on their car, they can happily sail through speed cameras knowing that you will be getting the points, or fines, and it will be then up to you to try and prove that they are not yours.

Impossible! Those things are unpassable! (Much like "In & Out")

Ive had eBay plates since ive owned my plate - and never had a problem.

I dont even have the post code on mine - I have a thicker border too (but spaced perfectly) and never once had it even mentioned.

Now that nearly all MOT's are checked electronically with the DVLA, at the garage, at the time of the MOT, all it would need would be the entering of the number plate supplier's name, after the reg number, for a valid check to be made and a dodgy one to show up. I haven't a clue if this part of the MOT, or if MOT stations check, but it would be easy to achieve, (unless the dodgy supplier had used the name of a registered supplier).

Do these have a BS certification number on them? Without I don't think they are legal.

Nowhere does the MOT rules state that the number plate must be made by an approved maker, just that it must conform to the legal requirements

But, if it is a legal requirement that number plates must only be supplied by an authorised maker, which I am pretty sure it is, then one made by an unapproved maker would not meet the legal requirements, so therefore, would be an MOT failure.

I have used them three times, twice in past year. Absolutely no problems at all. However, I do make it clear when taking the car that I do all my own repairs so not to bother quoting me for any work should it fail. One of them failed on emissions. No hassle from them. I ran some injector cleaner through the system, gave it an 'Italian Tune-up', took it back and it passed, no charge for the re-test.

these full under the rules of show plates, can order anything you want 100% legal to buy

I have never known any local testing centre fail a car due to the number plate not being made by an approved maker....in general as long as it is readable, not damaged, has a legal font & spacing then they will be passed ....I have even seen cars pass with illegal football club crests etc where the GB, EU etc should go

I have just found this from the following Government link regarding MOT inspections, which seems to make a mockery of the legislation requiring that number plates must only be supplied for fitting on to vehicles if the vehicle owner provides details to prove that he or she is the registered owner/keeper. This appears to be a massive loophole in the legislation of number plates, the Government states that they must be supplied by a registered maker, but then has no procedures in place to check that number plates are being supplied by a registered maker. Is there any wonder why drivers are getting speeding fines for offences they have not committed, congestion charges when they have not been anywhere near London, and visits from the police asking why they have driven off from petrol stations without paying for fuel?

NOTE:-
The following requirements for registration plates fitted to vehicles first registered on or after 1 September 2001 are not part of the inspection
:-
a. The display of the name and postcode of the registration plate supplying outlet.
b. The display of the BSAU number.
c. The display of the Euro symbol on registration plates which is optional

Problem....the MOT would be useless for this as you would not go to a test centre with the wrong number plate on your car....you would simply swap the illegal plate on after you get the MOT

If you had the wrong number plate on your car, you would have to swap it before the MOT, as it would not match the VI number, but if you mean the plate was from an unauthorised source,, like eBay, most people would leave those plates on because they have bought them for cheapness, and convenience, not to deceive, so those vehicles would fail the MOT and would need to have authorised plates fitted before getting the MOT certificate, which would then cut down on the market for unauthorised plates. If they had authorised plates in the first place, they would simply leave them on, there would be no need to swap them over.

We all know that the market for show plates is very limited, and most of these plates are being produced, and sold, to be used as unauthorised plates on road cars, often resulting in misery for those that have had their plates cloned, and been the victim of criminal offences committed by the cloners. People buying these unauthorised plates, for whatever reason, are part of the problem, they are keeping the unauthorised sellers in business, and those sellers have no concern about the misery caused to other people who might be victims of cloning, all they are interested in is making a profit.

How likely is that, though? (Edit: Not talking about illegal spacing, just the lack of manufacturer details on the plate)

There's no way to prove that the plates weren't manufactured before the rules came in.

If my car failed the MOT due to not having a postcode on the plate I'm afraid I'd take my car somewhere else and complain to the DVLA!

I'm looking at getting a set of these plates made up for my car for going to France this year - firstly I've got one problem that I can't find the V5 for my car (I know I put it somewhere but it could take months to sift through all the paperwork to find it!), so I'm going to have to get it from one of these online sellers (either that or get a replacement V5 - which until I need to sell the car I've no intention of doing - and maybe by the time I go to sell the car the original V5 will turn up!)

In reality though there is no real way to ensure reg plates aren't counterfeit. You can try all you want but at the end of the day it's a piece of perspex with a few letters printed on it which anyone can reproduce. Even stating that the manufacturer must put their details on the plate doesn't mean anything, if they can print it on the plate so can anyone else - obviously what stops anyone from just finding the name and address of a plate manufacturer and printing that name and address onto the bottom of the plate, the other manufacturer might be a bit annoyed if they find out who they are but proving that plate didn't come from them is going to be a bit tricky, plus say if a plate manufacturer goes bankrupt or shuts up shop - the other person could then continue to produce plates with his name and address on - who's going to stop them and apart from obviously the year of the vehicle who's going to be able to even find out if the plates were printed after the company closed or not.

It seems the reg plate registration scheme by the government is just an easy way to target small high street businesses and put extra burdens and costs for them to produce legitimate plates, when anyone else can just produce similar plates and sell them online as "show plates" to the same legal standard with no licencing.

If someone really did want to clone your reg plate and stick it on your vehicle no amount of government red tape is going to stop them, especially if they're a massive crime organisation. As for finding a reg plate for a specific vehicle - easy - if someone wants that they just walk around a car park for an hour or two, unless it's a special car I'm quite sure they'll be able to get the reg plate of a number of cars which match the colour, model and type they're looking for.

The funny one is when some people try and alter their reg plates and get it wrong - I remember one on a police programme when he tried to add black tape to a 0 on an 05 plate car to make it an 85 plate car and then wondered why the police stopped him - maybe because 85 plate cars on the new reg plate scheme won't appear until 2035 (that's if we don't have a new form of registration by then - vehicle registration will probably be done by then by some kind of RFID chip)
