    Motorbike 3 Row Number plates

    Currently working on a 1998 Bandit.

    Previously successfully used as a Sprint and Drag bike ( not by me )

    I am putting this back on road, lights etc now all sorted.

    Long extended swing arm means only 4" gap between top of tyre and bodywork, ( without me on it ), too small for number plate.

    so will have to side mount it, not wanting too wider plate.

    So can I use a 3 row number plate, 1 digit top row then 3 digits each on rows 2 and 3.

    Ive looked at DVLA site and believe that I can, but would appreciate others interpretation of it

    cheers

    I got a failed MOT for that, as apparently it's illegal ? so for MOT purposes I just stuck the normal on

    I can't see why it'd be a fail, provided that the characters are the right size. A lot of my old motorbikes had a suffix letter on the third row as standard (look at any picture of old bikes from the '60s/70s). Equally, they could be grouped over two rows.

    I read it as if its pre Sept 2001 then 3 rows is okay,
    others interpretations welcome

    I had a 94 Harley, had my number plate spaced exactly as you've suggested, never had a problem!

    Isn't it more an issue of characters not being correct size, and on a correct reflective plate, and strictly speaking number plate should be on right for UK roads (however, not sure if latter point is a C & U point)? Nice looking machine, though!
