3D & 4D Number Road Legal Plates?

What is the difference between 3D & 4D road legal number plates?

3D Domed Gel plates can be made with gloss gel that pushes the plate characters out from your number plate, where as 4D number plates add an additional layer under the 3D character to give it an extra kick in look and feel! We create either clear Krystal layers underneath to give your 4D number plate a floating character look, or black Krystal or block acrylic to give number plate characters a solid look!

6. What Happens If You Get Caught Without A Front Number Plate?

You could be fined up to £1,000 and your car will probably fail its MOT test
It is a legal requirement to display a front number plate on your vehicle. If you are caught driving without one, you could face a hefty fine and your car may fail its MOT test. Find out more about the penalties for not having a front number plate and how to avoid getting caught.Lets not get a penalty for no front number plate

If you get caught driving in the UK without a number plate, under the new proposal, you will get three penalty points on your licence, and you will also be asked to pay a one hundred pounds fine. Don’t be surprised; that’s what any driver with an obscured or missing number plate gets after violating the law. 

However, the three points penalty on the driver’s licence is a new bill just at the proposal level. Drivers may have to face that punishment in the next coming months. However, the existing penalty for any driver who moves a car without a number plate is paying a one hundred pounds fine.

That proposal was made to close the loophole in the UK law and, at the same time, motivate vehicle and motorcycle users to abide by the laws that corner using number plate. 

If you get yourself a brand-new car, you may have this ‘I can’t wait’ feeling to jump into it and cruise around the neighbourhood in the UK. Well, I’d say that’s a good feeling. Everybody feels like that when they newly acquire their new ride, especially if it’s their dream car.    

But, as thrilling as that may sound, driving around in the UK without number plate might land you into trouble. So, I would advise you to wait, do your number plate registration, and place it at the front and back of your car before you jump into it. 

7. Can I drive in the UK without a number plate?

If you are nursing the question ‘Can I drive without a number plate?’ in your mind, the answer is No.

Let’s face it.

Driving without plate numbers on your car is against the law in the UK. As a standard rule, all vehicles moving on the road must have number plates in the front and back. And, that’s not all about it.

There are other specific rules that you need to put into observation regarding the number plate color, character’s color, and the materials used. 

In the UK, white is the accepted colour for the front number plate while the one at the rear must be yellow, both with black characters on them.

Meanwhile, this law is not established just to stress the UK car owners. Instead, it is to make it possible for other drivers and even pedestrians to vividly tell the front of a car from its back after seeing the reflective number plate.

The white and yellow colour system will also make it easier for other drivers and pedestrians to determine whether the car is coming to them or moving away from them. That is why it is easier for car owners to navigate at night.
