Do Number Plate Makers Have To Be Licensed Or Registered?

Yes, it’s essential for number plate makers to be registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) to adhere to all legal guidelines. It’s of the utmost importance to become a Registered Number Plate Supplier if your business is going to supply plates. Whether you’re a car dealership, repair shop, MOT test centre, a fleet management company or any business that provides vehicles to customers, it’s also important to have the right number plate printer, equipment and software to adhere to all standards. We also understand the importance of providing ongoing support and advice once your purchase has been made so we always make sure we are available to help with any technical hurdles or questions you may have. Some businesses are exempt from registering with the DVLA mainly brand new vehicle sellers and companies making plates for business fleet only.

How To Register as a Number Plate Supplier

If you’re interested in selling or making number plates then you must register with the DVLA. This enables your business to operate under the necessary guidelines and provides you with peace of mind. Once you’ve complied with all the legal obligations of attaining a licence you can begin supplying number plates for your vehicles or getting them made from a licensed manufacturer such as Uniplate.
