Road-legal and show plates

If you’re in need of road-legal plates for compliance, we are here for you. More and more motorists are choosing us over the competition all the time, and what’s more is that you don’t need to send us any documentation to complete your order, which makes the whole process so much more manageable. Our customers love our fast delivery, our easy-to-use website, affordable prices and incredible service, so there really is no need to go anywhere else when you need to purchase road-legal registration prices.

Can Show Plates Direct supply private numbers?

Although we cannot sell you a private registration number, we can add one to a plate once you have acquired one from the DVLA. Once you have ordered a personalised registration number from the DVLA, you will receive a Certificate of Entitlement and Registration Certificate (V5C) from the DVLA. These entitle you to add your registration number to a vehicle. You will need to assign your number to your vehicle before the expiry date, which you can find on the documentation sent to you by DVLA.

Why buy replacement registration plates?

People buy road-legal replacement registration plates from us for many reasons, often coming to us after their original plates have been damaged in accidents or subjected to vast wear and tear. It’s vital that the plates you use in during your day-to-day motoring life are visible and in good condition. If this is not the case, you could be fined up to £1,000, and your car could fail its MOT, so don’t take the risk. If your plates have seen better days, order your replacement plates from Show Plates Direct today. We frequently receive glowing feedback from our customers and always go the extra mile to deliver the exceptional customer service that you deserve. Number plates were first introduced over a century ago in the UK to ensure vehicles could easily be traced in the event of motoring offences and accidents.

No paperwork required

You don’t need to send us your V5C or any other documentation when you order plates from us. This saves you a great deal of time, money and worry. When you order your plates from us, you can do so from the comfort of your own home, saving as much as 50% on typical high street prices in the process. It’s no wonder so many people are ordering their bespoke registration plates from Show Plates Direct.

Made to British Standards

All the plates we manufacture are built to British Standards and manufactured from tough ABS. To ensure the plates you are designing are fit for the road, just select the ‘road legal’ on the online plate builder when you are designing them. This ensures your borders, fonts and imagery are compliant with the law. If you are are buying road-legal plates, you can tailor your order to your specific requirements by choosing from a range of approved flags and fonts. We strongly recommend that you order a fitting kit when ordering your plates. This simplifies the whole process, with the kit consisting of various screws and sticky pads.
