Number plate styles
You might have a personalised registration or one that is standard issue, but regardless of this, UK law forbids altering the spacing between characters shown on a number plate. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has strict measurements concerning not just spacing between characters but also the margins surrounding them. While you can’t alter the height of a number plate, you can decrease the width of a plate if you possess a short registration with fewer characters. Failure to adhere to the rules could result in a hefty fine or MOT failure. These rigid laws are developed to make sure registrations are clear to read in all light conditions by both the authorities and other drivers.
With our plate builder you can see how your private number plate will look on your car of choice, but you’ll also be able to test a range of customisation options before buying. All our options for styling up your plate at New Reg stick to the UK laws for number plates, so you won’t have to worry about unnecessary fines or failed tests.
Through our Number Plate Builder, your private registration can be previewed in a selection of different styles that include carbon, standard and hiline, along with the very latest in 3D effects. You can also view what your plates will look like if they are framed by a smart black border.
While number plates carried by UK cars must always be yellow with black alphanumeric characters at the rear, and white with black alphanumeric characters at the front, you’ll still be able to add extra colour if you opt to include a national flag. Try out plates with a red, white and blue Union Jack, a red and white St George Cross, a blue and white St Andrews cross, or the red dragon of Wales.
