    Registration plate size

    Is it legal to cut the number plate down as long as the spacing 11mm from the edge, thankyou for any help on this , i've had a look on the DVLA site and cant see anything that states you can't but i may have missed it.

    The important thing is that the characters are the correct size & font, the spacing must be correct & the border size. This means that if you had a 2 character plate, it could legally be alot smaller than a regular 7 character plate.

    MX5 or Eunos ( JDM version ) which can legally run smaller plates and characters . Show me a picture of the rear end and I'll tell you what you've got.

    Plates must be laid down standard which includes visible reflective area between character and edge of plate . Less than 7 numbers means plate can LEGALLY be smaller than standard but with correct size font size . The character size reduced in the latest updates. ie those plates with EU flag can legally have the EU piece removed whilst still meeting regs . To pass MOT the plate must carry correct BS for when plate manufactured and also manufacturers mark.

    Some folks seem to flaunt it no worries.
    Bloke near me has always had a black number plate with just a long number on it like... 324576
    Currently on that huge Jaguar Panzerwaggon thing!?!?
