White number plate at the rear

Is it possible to put a white number plate (maybe a front plate) at the rear of a UK car? I mean I know its possible but how illegal is it and can you do it without too much trouble?

Re: White number plate at the rear

Just buy another white plate. It is illegal, i have seen a couple of people near me running them on the rear. Cant say if you will get pulled or not depends how strict coppers are around you. I would just leave standard yellow on the back if you are standard.

Re: White number plate at the rear

Yeah thats a shame as white plates at the back look really good on a black GP. Saw one abroad, I dunno why in UK we need yellow back plates, almost everywhere else in Europe they are white. I really wanna do it but dont want to get stopped every 5 mins.

Where I live I see alot of foreign cars so they have white rear plates but with the blue logo saying the country. So from a distance coppers wouldnt be able to tell if it said GB over something like P or I.

No but the driver being on the wrong side of the car is a big give away

Re: White number plate at the rear

to be honest i wouldnt bother risking it, you can tel when its a foreign plate. not worth the hassle you will get, it is stupid though i agree.

Yeah but them foreigners probably think our yellow rear plates look really cool. Familiarity breeds contempt. In Britain we need to know whether you are coming (white) or going (yellow)!
