Operations will take place at the road side, where vehicles are checked for the correct size of number plate, spacing of the letters and numbers, font and colours of the characters. If just one of the parameters is incorrect then the owner of the vehicle could be liable for a £1000 fine. There is also legislation that means that the number plate supplier can also be fined up to £5000 for being an unregistered number plate dealer. Carreg.co.uk has been in business for nearly twenty years and is a fully registered dealer recognised by the DVLA. http://www.carreg.co.uk/number_plates/get_news/31
Even if the number plate is legal, the fixing bolts need to be in the right place too, if they are placed in a manner that changes the appearance of a letter or number, this can be considered illegal, as is adding a spot of paint or tape, any alteration like this can be considered a deliberate attempt to alter the number plate appearance and can be treated the same as the other illegal number plates.
The DVLA keeps a register of all recognised number plate dealers, of which Carreg.co.uk is on. Some vehicle owners may be unaware of the legal status of the numbers on cars that have been bought, Carreg.co.uk advise anyone concerned about the status of the number plates, to contact either the DVLA or a recognised dealer like Carreg.co.uk. http://www.carreg.co.uk/number_plates/get_news/31
