Replacement Number Plates From eBay?

Can I Buy A Replacement Number Plate From eBay?

These days we’re much more used to shopping for our goods online – which means that we’re much more comfortable when it comes to shopping around and hunting out bargains.

For many people, turning to multi selling sites as Amazon and eBay is the first choice, because you can get everything you need from one central place – shopping made easy!

Whilst there is technically no legal reason why you can’t buy a number plate on eBay, it isn’t as easy as saying a resounding ‘yes you can’.

What many people do not realise is that there are two types of number plate – display plates and road worthy plates. When you are shopping for number plates on eBay you can’t really be 100% that it is going to be road worthy and legal. You’re taking a big risk by displaying the wrong type of number plate on your car, because it is you that will get into trouble with the law and not the person you bought from.

Staying Safe

The best thing you can do is shop around and make sure that you buy from a company that is registered with the DVLA and gives you reassurance that the number plate you are buying is road worthy and legal. There are lots of retailers online that offer this – so you can still sit at home and shop online! – 0208 144 1715
