We’ve also expanded our product range to include 5mm Laser Cut plates as well as 4D Neon Gel number plates, ensuring that we offer the most comprehensive catalogue of options in the market, and are in turn, one of the most popular manufacturers of custom reg plates in the UK.

Most of our shapes are available to select on our Plate Builder, but if you can’t see what you’re looking for, then you’re welcome to email us or contact us via our social media channels. We’re constantly updating our list of custom shaped plates, and we’re often happy to create bespoke plates for your vehicle if you can’t find what you need. 

Are custom number plates UK road legal?

Provided your custom license plate meets the British Standard and the legal requirements for the road, then there is no reason why your customised license plate shouldn’t be legal for use on the country’s roads. Typically, all number plates should meet BS AU 145e, with any new plates from the 1st September 2021 meeting the BS AU 145e standard. 

There are certain parameters which must be met in regards to legality, such as the spacing between each character, the font, and the margins between the characters and edge of the plate. For more information, see Section 12 of our Terms and Conditions

As long as you follow the instructions when using our car number plates maker, you have no reason to worry. If you do have any questions about legality however, one of our team will be happy to help.

How much for custom license plates?

Custom number plates needn’t be expensive. In fact, you can make a custom reg plate from as little as £23.98 for a set! All of our custom registration plates are made to the highest quality, and if they display a road legal registration, then they’ll be made to the latest BS AU 145e standard.

Custom Plate Numbers

It can be confusing when you comes to buy custom number plates. But don’t worry, we’re here to help! Custom number plates and personalised plates must not be confused with private registrations or custom registrations. You must own the entitlement to the registration if you’re looking into making a number plate. For instance, you must already have the registration on a vehicle, proved by the provision of a V5C, or on retention from the DVLA.

Our helpful search function makes it easy for you to find a custom plate number that suits your wants and needs. Custom licence plates can take a variety of forms. Current, dateless (cherished), suffix and prefix are the most prominent registration types that you will see on UK roads.
