Number Plate Printing

Dent Magician can print, supply and professionally install all types of pre-printed number plates for your vehicle. Whether you are looking for 'Show Plates', 'Anti-theft Plates', 'Car Number Plates' or 'Number Plate Fixings', Dent Magician will provide you with everything that you are looking for.

The current legislation on number plates came into force on September 1st 2001. A new British Standard (BSAU 145d) was introduced which requires number plate components to meet higher standards of quality.

The DVLA also introduced new laws which necessitates all number plates supplied from September 1st 2001 to display the suppliers or manufacturers name and postcode in the bottom centre of the plate, as well as the new British Standard number (BSAU 145d) in the bottom right hand corner.

DVLA Number Plate Legislation

A number plate must be displayed at the front and rear of motor vehicles, must be easy to read and meet the British Standard. Lettering should be black on a white plate at the front and black on yellow at the rear. The background surface should be retro-reflecting but the characters must not and spacing must be of a set size.
Number plates fitted after the 1st September 2001 must display characters that meet the following dimensions:

Space between Characters
Space between Groups

Certain imported vehicles may be permitted to display number plates with smaller characters if:
The vehicle does not have European Community whole vehicle type approval AND the vehicles construction / design cannot accommodate standard size number plates.

All motorcycles and tricycles must display a number plate at the rear of the vehicle. If you have a two or three wheeled motorcycle or tricycle that has a body type of a four-wheeled vehicle, you MUST display a number plate at the front and rear. The characters may be smaller:

Space between Characters
Space between Groups

Motorcycles registered on or after 1st September 2001 must display a two-line number plate. Motorcycles registered prior to this may display a three-line number plate, but one-line number plates are illegal, irrespective of the date of registration.

From 1st September 2001 all new number plates must display the mandatory font:

Number plates fitted before this date need not be changed provided the font used is substantially the same as the one above. Number plates need to be replaced if they have been customised with: Stylised letters such as italics Number plate fixing bolts that alter the appearance of the letters / numbers.

The law states that you must not alter, rearrange or misrepresent the letters or numbers. Characters must not be moved from one group to the other (e.g A242 ABC must not be displayed as A242A BC).
