Are small motorcycle number plates legal?

Yes. We use laser cutting and CNC routing techniques to develop our designs into tangible products. This allows us to create the wildest designs, as long as they conform to DVLA law, there is a lot that you can do to tailor your bike number plate perfectly to the bikes needs.

These regulations make sure that UK bike plates are above a certain set of dimensions and adhere to the correct character sizing and spacing and ensure that you are displaying a product in line with motorcycle number plate law.

What size are motorcycle number plates?

The standard size for a UK motorbike number plates is 9 x 7 inches (228mm x 178mm). We stock this size in many different materials, though we know that a standard motorcycle number plates isn’t exactly what you are looking for.

This is why we have started to develop new shapes for the bike plates that we offer, meaning that there are more options, split into motorcycle types that will give you a number plates purpose built for your bike.

We have produced multiple designs to cater for the likes of touring bikes, motocross bikes and sports bikes and we are looking to create more. Though we have to adhere to certain laws that mean your plates remain legal within DVLA law and British Standards, a few of the specifics are listed below (for motorbike manufacture after 1st September 2001):

  • Characters must be 79mm tall
  • Characters (except the number 1 or letter I) must be 50mm wide
  • The character stroke (the thickness of the black print) must be 14mm
  • The space between characters must be 11mm
  • The space between the age identifier and the random letters must be 33mm
  • The margins at the top, bottom and side of the plate must be 11mm
  • Vertical space between the age identifier and the random numbers must be 19mm

If your motorbike is a little older than that and was made before 1st September 2001, but after 1st January 1973 then this applies to your reg plates:

  • Characters must be 89mm tall
  • Characters (except the number 1 or letter I) must be 64mm wide
  • The character stroke (the thickness of the black print) must be 16mm
  • The space between characters must be 13mm
  • The space between the age identifier and the random letters must be 38mm
  • The margins at the top, bottom and side of the plate must be 13mm
  • Vertical space between the age identifier and the random numbers must be 19mm

And for those classic rides that were manufactured before 1st January 1973, the requirements are slightly different again:

  • Characters must be 64mm tall
  • Characters (except the number 1 or letter I) must be 44mm wide
  • The character stroke (the thickness of the black print) must be 10mm
  • The space between characters must be 10mm
  • The space between the age identifier and the random letters must be 30mm
  • The margins at the top, bottom and side of the plate must be 11mm

Motorcycle Number Plates

Can I have black and silver bike plates?

Black and silver motorcycle number plates are reserved for vehicles that are deemed as ‘vintage’ by the DVLA. This means that vehicles manufactured in the year 1979 or before are eligible for vintage number plates. For our standard and custom motorcycle plates, we use British Standard grade yellow acrylic.

These vehicle are also exempt from tax, therefore you must apply via the DVLA when registering for vintage motorcycle number plates as you can kill two birds with one stone.

Are motorcycle number plates legal on cars?

No! Due to the legalities regarding the required character sizing and spacing that differs between standard UK car and motorbike number plates, you can not display this on a car, truck, or anything else that is not a motorcycle.
