Buying A Number Plate

What To Look For When Buying A Number Plate Online

When you start to contact number plate companies, you will probably see a vast difference in the costs that people claim to be able to do this for you. What you need to be aware of is that cheapest isn’t always best. You need to be aware of what you are getting for your money and make sure that whatever you buy is the best number plate for you.

Of course the first thing you need to make sure of is that you own the number plate. Getting a number plate made up is not enough – because anyone can do that! You have to be the registered owner of the number plate/vehicle in question. If the number plate company you are dealing with doesn’t take steps to check this, then you should probably steer well clear of them and their services.

Another thing that you need to check is that the number plate you are buying is suitable for use on a roadworthy vehicle. It is easy to get a number plate printed but you need to have one that meets all of the legal obligations that are set in place. What you will find in the small print of many number plate companies terms is that they only deal with ‘show plates’. This means that they are really only made for novelty, and not to be used on a car/vehicle. You can land yourself in trouble if you go ahead and use this on your vehicle – including failing your MOT and even getting a hefty fine!

Of course most companies operate legitimately so you don’t have to worry too much, but just keep your wits about you and make sure that whatever you are investing your money in is something that is going to work for you. – 0208 144 1715
