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'.

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!
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!
