Plates Rules and Legal Requirements

A New Font Style

A new mandatory number plate font style has been introduced. This will make it illegal for any vehicle being used on the public highway to have a number plate which does not conform to the new font style.

Motorists whose vehicles bear number plates, which have been customised by means of stylised letters and figures such as italics or the placement of number plate fixing bolts must replace them or risk prosecution.

Standard | Hi-line | 3D | Carbon

New Font Size and Display

All new number plates must be made using the new mandatory font size and display requirements.
