    Last time I bought a numberplate I just got it off eBay but now I find some legislation has stopped this!!

    I need a new plate made for my motorbike, how can I get one now?!

    you need the V5c for the vehicle and possibly some ID for yourself, any decent motor factor or dealer will either be able to do one for you or point you in the direction of who does theirs

    So, say, the motorbike dealer I got my bike from should do it?

    That means I won't be able to ride my bikeys for a few days

    why do you need another one, won't it cross over? or do you need to drill new holes in it?

    Do you have a drill? as a temporary measure

    i just got mine from a car shop/parts shop, and they did it while i waited.
    i needed the V5 doc, and ID, to prove i owned the car.

    I couldn't be bothered to take my documents so I just went to a autoparts shop and they made me sign a disclaimer that I was using them as showplates and let me have whatever I want.

    you should only need the V5, some places will ask for id in the form of a driving licence or insurance certificate. they're still gettable online that said, but to be 'legal', as well as the font they must have the manufacturer's post code etc.

    be wary of the halfrauds ones, the one I got bubbles and was poorly finished (more to do with the guy being in a rush to laminate it)

    Halfords managed to get a letter wrong on a numberplate they made up for me, and thats simply copying it across from the V5.. :rolleyes:
    Do have to wonder about if all the jokes about halfords staff are actually founded in truth.. :p:

    They did that to me too! I went to get a plate made up for my trailer and at the time I was living somewhere very remote so was forced to use halfrauds.

    He handed me the plate, I looked at it and handed the plate and the V5 back to him and said "Try again". His face was a picture! lol.

    I didnt bloody check it until I went to put it on the car.. i just assumed they could get the plate right!
    They didnt seem that surprised or shocked when I went back and was a little miffed with them lol.

    Good old halfrauds..

    I just risked it and whizzed down to my local bike dealer wearing no plate on the off chance they print them, which they did. I only had my V5 thing with me. You will be suprised how many places do them but dont advertise it!
