Re: Number plates

You didn't provide a link but i'm guessing they are the pressed plates? They look very nice if they are

Re: Number plates

They are only legal if your car was made before 1973.

Re: Number plates

There is a whole list of rules on the MOT for number plates. All are Pass/Fail none can be advised (how is that safety related?). I had my bike failed on otherwise legal plates because there was no makers name and address. FFS. For the full monty go and ask your local MOT man.

Isn't it if you have a numberplate registered before 1973?

Not if the cars made before then

Re: Number plates

if you've got a cop behind you you're definately gonna get pulled for them, i had the "I" for italian plates, the correct font, spacing, size, colour etc. got pulled 13 times in a year for having an "I" instead of GB so if they notice minor stuff like that they're definately gonna notice the wrong colour plates
so now i have my legal pressed ones from dubmeister :-)

Re: Number plates

Fiat Punto...
Must be a young driver...
Who must be up to trouble / not insured / etc (oh yes )
Odd looking plates?
Perfect excuse to stop him

I used to have the same hassle with an old Mini 1000. It was safe and legal but scruffy so I was constantly stopped.
