Our show plates are designed to be completely adaptable to your requirements and vehicle style, making them the perfect addition to your pride and joy. Remember, Show Plates are for exactly that, “Show”. It is not something that you would drive down the street with. A show plate will not be your VRM it will be a highly customised lets say “Ferrari” plate. With no VRM markings on so you can show it off at shows in the garden or when the Jones’s are looking over the fence or when its parked in its garage and you want to impress the visiting family!

What can my show plate look like?

You have more design flexiblity with a show plate than with a road legal plate. It’s possible to customise your show plates in a variety of ways, by choosing different registration layout, borders, fonts, badges, slogans and more. You can let your imagination run wild when it comes to show plates, and you can even use our online number plate maker to get an extra insight into the vast spectrum of styles available to you. All you need to remember is that show number plates are not intended for road use as they are not road legal.

As you would expect from Number 1 Plates, all of our show plates are made from the highest quality materials, using the same premium acrylic used in our road-legal plates. Visit our plate builder to see the range of styles available. Or, if you are looking to purchase a private registration plate, have a look at our Cherished Number Plates page.

Are show plates legal?

Show Plates generally means illegal Number Plates. If you’re looking for illegal number plates then Number1Plates is not the place for you. There are a great many less reputable purveyors out there. Many work from their bedrooms and sell illegal number plates. You’ll find their web sites show no telephone number. These guys will sell you all the illegal plates you want and they will not ask you for ID or a valid DVLA document which shows you have a right to number plates showing your registration number. Be careful because you may finish up throwing your money down the drain with no chance of getting your money back from an illegal trader.

We can make your show plates to fit a vast range of shapes and sizes, so whether you want a sign for your caravan or horse box, we can provide your custom plates and have them delivered as soon as tomorrow!
