Hi all,

whats the law regarding the front registraion plate.

Are you leagally required to display 1 because in theory at night u dont have 1 coz its not illuminated, so in the day can you be without too.

Just interested!!

Does that mean i can remove my headlamps in the day to drive around, lol......

You have to have a legal number plate displayed at anytime whilst driving on a public highway or you are liable to be prosecuted.....

A number plate is reflective, therefore it is illuminated of a night if and when a light reclects of it......

You could also think of a check list for an MOT ?

Like scooby was kidding about the front lights,
just because you dont use them you still need them?

With out a front / rear number plate you wont pass an MOT,

So you could use that as a guide
then look up the law if your still unsure.

But paz may have a bit more info on sticky plates?

And dont forget that number plates can only be of a certain FONT ?

I think i can safely say that over the last few years
lots of new regulations have come out regarding registration plates.

Summary :
You do need one front and back wink

You need a front plate, you need headlights. If it would fail the MOT, then it is illegal.

The law states that you must have a number plate meeting the correct regulations (Size, reflective etc) but does NOT go any further than that, as far as i am aware a second number plate is 100% legal..... Possibly ask TonyMK2 to pop down the local police station to do his research bit happy

as it stands from bromborough traffic police you have to by law place you reg plate on a flat surface NOT in your car behind your windscreen as it is an obstuction there for you will be given a 30 on the spot fine an 3 point it has to be on the bumper flat!!!!!!!!!!!
