Did you know plates must be 'permanently and legibly marked' with the name and postcode of the supplying outlet?
At the bottom centre of a plate, the supplier's details must be shown in a clear and legible way. The print should be non-retroreflective and should contrast enough with the colour of the plate to be visible.
The supplier details must show the following, matching the RNPS:
- the supplier's name
- the supplier's postcode
The RNPS is regulated by the DVLA and UK-wide enforcement officers visit customer's premises to check plates are meeting their requirements.
Must not do's:
A plate must not show:
- website address (unless this is is the sole trading name of the company)
- telephone numbers
Alternative advertising options
Lipped plates are an ideal alternative to advertising on number plates while remaining within the British Standard and RNPS regulations.
