    On a slightly different note: in NZ you can make up your own the number. Some we saw were a person's name, some were business names, some were like I DID IT or LIFE OF (on an old Riley) or MAX 160, the choice was endless. The authorities put a stop to the more crude examples but they are still around.
    The only power you have is the word 'no'.

    It used to be a hose and bucket before the advent of locking fuel caps here.
    They have now turned to home heating oil tanks.

    Nor can I but there are l o ads of travellers with motor caravans now they don't pay for anything. And seem immune from receiving fines etc.

    I did have a set of French plates ,,,,an ornament before you get the wrong idea...stick them on my van, or better still Irish as the van is rhd. It does make you wonder if you would get caught stopped and checked

    I must stress I haven't done it wont do it but an insight into my criminal mind.

    NU NV typographical errors occur me lud

    yes makes you wonder ,i see loads of blue alahmbras about ,there as common as the common cold , it makes you think if i was to fit plates from one of those ok you would have to use show plates a bit of a give away as they have no B.S number or makers i.d ,ok not a local one would i realy get a tug off plod . after all its not a high value car is it ,not a merc or bmw that would be a common motor to clone .mind you i would more than likley fit plates from somebodys car that is dodgy and wanted by the cops with my luck or have a mahoosive accident landing me in chokey

    I recently replaced the registration plates on both our Hymer and Scooter. Both from eBay and none required proof of ownership. The Van plates do have a very small post code!
    They were not advertised as show plates!

    Agreed I also ordered a couple of rear number plates for trailers from ebay, they were cheap, good quality and needed no proof of id.

    I went for the metal variety as I am fed up of the plastic type getting water between the laminates!

    Two cases come to mind. When I was doing MOTs a customer used to ask me for a duplicate certificate for his tipper truck and his MR2. When I eventually asked him why he needed copies he told me he has bought both a tipper and MR2 that matches these in the UK and taken them out to Spain with the same reg's.

    Another was in our local area there was a MOT inspector who was particularly picky and imposing, a right bar-steward, who often went beyond his remit in disciplining testers and authorised garages. A garage that had their authorisation revoked by him cloned his car and drove around for weeks getting speeding and parking fines and he never knew who had done it!

    I'll take my chances, at least the letters are spaced properly, unlike many other private plates I see.
    However I did get a smaller plate for the scooter, which will be used abroad, and replaced if and when MOT time
    Does this face look bothered ! LOL
