Where can I put my licence plate?

Ok so here's my new bumper and I have jap plates so i don't want to put it here (red) cause i dont to cover the mesh I also do do not want a uk long plate across here either.

I have seen some people with stickers here (green) but is this legal?

I have also seen some people with a smaller square one on one side but I'm fairly sure that's not legal based on the size. I don't want to put one in my window/not sure if that's actually fully legal either.

What are my options here? I did have a look at gov.uk for their legislation but I didn't find it very helpful. I think i remember vaguely reading somewhere that you can apply to have allowances if you think a front plate would ruin the aesthetics of your vehicle?

Off to one side is fine, sure that Ronzilla on here has done just that with no troubles.

I just put mine in windscreen and havn't had any probs yet - it's not a daily though - apart from getting into some car parks using APNR

Mine is square and off to the side - it's an import so follows slightly different plate size rules....

see a lot of jap cars with plates to one side,
have you thought about American size plates, there a little bit wider but not as deep as jap plates...
jap plates are 11x8
American plates are 12x6

I started writing a reply to this

because I'm bored I got carried away and made a thread

https://www.skylineowners.com/forum/2...ml#post2699906

All your questions answered.


Summary... a "square" plate is legal if it's the right size and follows all the laws i mention in that thread

it can be off to 1 side. thats fine, as long as its on the vertical plane etc like i mention in the thread

a sticker is illigal

should keep you on the right side of the old bill
