Hi all,

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
