    How can this or any other printed piece of paper purporting to be an official weight plate have any validity.

    Surely a DVSA inspector would take no notice of anything but an officially authorised weight plate.

    My only experience of this is with HGV's which have an official ministry plate with weights and specified tyres as well as any manufacturers plate.

    It has to be supported with a design weight certificate and amended V5C as many of us have done in another thread. WITHOUT using SVtech. Thanks to @Minxy Girl

    As per Techo's post, this is just a sticker for the vehicle to show at a glance what the weight is, it's the paperwork that goes with it that's important which is what you'd have to show to prove the sticker is legit.

    Superior yes BUT only if you're trained to use it. I've done the hard work so it only needs editing to suit

    I presume the design weight certificate is issued by DVSA or that during the authorising process the full details are registered with them as the V5 only shows 'revenue weight' and not axle weight details.

    So you are stopped by DVSA for a weight check and apart from the original manufacturers plate, which I presume is still attached, all you have is a printed piece of paper issued by a consultant, how would the DVSA operative know any possible upgraded axle weights. I am aware that the the upgraded max weight would be known as this would be shown on their system through the upgraded V5.

    I am not criticising or implying anything is amiss, I am curious as to how this works in detail, bits of paper can be printed by anyone as this thread title implies.

    Works the same no matter who provides the service and I carry the design weight certificate with my documents.
    If you read the other thread, The purpose of printing my own is because the one supplied by the consultant isn't especially good quality.
    As for a DVSA operative. The Consultant contact details and VIN number are there for enquiries

    It is for laser printing on self adhesive gloss vinyl not paper, this was only used to test the template.

    You get the following from the consultant:
    • Weight change sticker/label to place on your vehicle
    • Letter confirming that he has checked the details etc (not just what WE provide) and stating the weight change is 'legit', this shows the individual axle weights etc too
    • A new design weight certificate again showing all the weight details
    You then submit all of this to the DVLA who check it has been done correctly and not just a 'fabrication' by someone unqualified, they then amend the V5C to show the new Taxation Class and Revenue Weight.

    If you were stopped they would check with the DVLA, or the consultant if they wished, to confirm it's all aboveboard, so you don't have to keep all your paperwork with you - how many people do you know that actually take their V5C with them anyway - no-one I know!

    ... I knew when I posted that I should have said "except Techno"! :D

    I actually meant ALL the time, UK and abroad - we always take them when going abroad but never in the UK as I don't want to leave it in the camper for some prat if they nick it especially since it isn't a legal requirement here.

    No such thing on the classes of vehicle we're talking about.

    There are 3 on mine - the Fiat one, the Rapido one and the vinyl sticker from SV Tech.

    There is nothing official or authorised about any of them. Apart from containing broadly the same information they don't even look similar.
