    Hi, Look up the rules of registration marks on the DVLA website. Very clearly illegal so expect trouble from the police if you decide to use them on the road!

    Not worth the hassle IMO unless for show use. I've been fined for illegal plates in the past, never again.

    Only way to get away with them is Buy a classic Number Plate from the 60's! Because the plate is pre yellow plate you should be able to do it, i would have thought


    AND THE ONLY REASON THE OLD BILL DONT LIKE EM IS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT SPEED CAMERA FREINDLY!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED
