Number Plate Bulb

One of my number plate bulbs blew yesterday - all of the W5W bulbs seem to be LED ones, is this correct or is there a variation in bulbs please?

Also, is it illegal to drive with one out?

Cheers.

Re: Number Plate Bulb

it is illegal to drive with out your number plate lit as it forms part of the MOT test my partner had her complete housing nicked off her punto n they flagged it up.
