    Hi all
    Just to clear up a query? is it illegal to drive about with number plates stating other than what is on the m/home bumpers legaly. i/e you put a no, plate on the luton or high up on the m/home maybe saying ----I love Lucy :Smile: or something else ?

    Cheers sammy.

    The law says you must display the registration number for the vehicle in the approved format and for it to be appropriately illuminated.

    It's your vehicle.... whatever else you choose to display on your vehicle is up to you... some folk call it customising!

    At a rally a couple of years ago, Knutsford, there was a meet of VW vans and many of those had 'false' number plates relating to how their vans were decorated... eg... one was done like a witches' coven and they had a number plate to match .. something like SP3lL , The three looking like E to make SPELL..... but they had them over the top of the real plate so obviously did not travel with them on.

    hMMPH Tried to put some photos on but can't find them.:Sad:

    cherished plates

    Hi all
    It was just another angle to cherished no, plates ---you could have the "Real" no, plates on the bumper or where they usually are and your made up ones higher up on the m/home, it was just a thought to be more legal :thumb:

    cheers sammy :Smile:

    ps, I love Lucy was on telly years ago (many)

    if it was illegal, virtually all skip lorries and plenty of other HGVs would be pulled by the police due to the number plate with a nickname inside the bottom of their windscreen

    as long as the correct number plate is displayed then any other plate can also be displayed so long as it doesnt resemble a proper legal one.

    Many RV's have American state related number plates which obviously dont look anything like ours.

    I used to have a green suzuki jeep with a fun plate (KERMIT) on the front
