A Guide to Made Up Number Plates

Made up number plates are a service Uniplate offers for businesses and members of the public who wish to upgrade or replace their vehicle’s number plates. For businesses, it is a handy way of outsourcing work that they have no interest in taking on for themselves and can rest assured that the registration plates will be made to the highest standard and delivered to them, or directly to their customers, in a timely fashion and ready to be fitted.

Who Would Benefit From This Service?

We offer the made up number plate service to suit your business needs so, if you are a DVLA-registered garage that likes to have its own branded plates on all stock, we can make all the plates you require and send them directly to your business or, if you are a private plate seller, you can just send us the details of the requirement and your customers’ addresses and we can fulfil delivery on your behalf.

Why Would I Change My Plates?

There are many reasons you may wish to change your number plates. It could be that they look worn or are broken, you wish to travel abroad and want a flag, you own a garage and want your details on the plate or you just fancy something different.

We offer a wide range of shapes, sizes, printers and styles of plates to make sure we give you as many options as possible. We make sure to use the best materials and make sure that all plates are made to the exacting BSAU 145e standards – ensuring longevity and compliance. According to government regulations, your number plate could be the reason your car fails its MOT.

What’s Popular?

In recent years, by far the most popular plates are UK travel badge plates and also our fully compliant 4D plates, which a lot of customers love. Lipped plates are still a firm favourite of DVLA-registered business owners.

This is a popular option as companies are allowed to put a lot more information on the lip, as this part of the plate is not governed by any specific rules. Companies utilise this by adding website addresses, colourful logos and contact details.

Why Choose a Flagged Plate?

Flagged plates are very common on our roads and whether this is because you are patriotic or because you often travel abroad, this can also hold its benefits. If you, for instance, display a UK-flagged plate, this means that in some countries you will not also have to display a UK sticker on the rear of the car.

‘Less Is More’ or ‘All Bells and Whistles’?

This is totally up to your preference, you can have a simple, stylish plate without throwing the kitchen sink at it or you can go all out with flags, borders and 4D digits, and business owners can add a lip for good measure. Just contact one of our team and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.
