Motorcycle Number Plates, All Shapes & Sizes
Before discussing how to find the best motorbike number plates, you have to keep a few things in mind. They are:
- Read the DVLA website to learn about the rules and regulations when customising the number of plates for your motorbike.
- Go legal. Choose a number plate font and size that is legal and DVLA approved.
- Don’t select the reflective number plates. DVLA does not approve the number of plates that reflect, so you should talk to your store owner about it and choose the right one
Here’s the thing: there is no specific regulation dictating the required size of a square motorcycle number plates. However, there are certain rules encircling the dimension of the plate letters. So, it is obvious that the plate must be within a specific size if the letters are to be of the necessary height and width for your motorbike.
The letters must be 44 mm wide and 64 mm high, with the depth of the stroke at 10 mm. Also, the space between the characters is set at 10 mm. There needs to be a clear background of 11 mm between the letters and the edge of the plate. Then it will be road legal!
You shouldn’t be able to shorten the plate beyond a particular point without having to further reduce the letters to a certain size, which would then be illegal. The last thing you want is to be stopped by a traffic officer.
