How do I make my own number plate?

Making your own number plate is an exciting way to personalise your vehicle and make it truly yours. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to make your own number plate.

Step 1: Selecting your Personalised Registration

First and foremost, you need to decide on the personalised registration number. You can either come up with it yourself, or use online tools provided by many reputable number plate sellers. Remember to check the DVLA Personalised Registrations service to ensure your chosen plate is available and legal.

Step 2: Purchase the Number

Once you've chosen your plate, the next step is to purchase it. Again, this can be done through the DVLA or a trusted number plate supplier. Be aware, the price varies depending on the desirability of the number/letter combination.

Step 3: Register Your New Number Plate

After purchasing, you need to register your new number plate with the DVLA. The seller usually provides this service, but if not, you can do it yourself. You'll need the V750 certificate of entitlement or V778 retention document, proof of ID, and proof of vehicle ownership.

Step 4: Get the Plate Made

Once the new number is officially yours, visit our plate builder to create your legal plate. Simply bring along your V750 or V778 document, along with proof of ID, to get started. Rest assured that our plates adhere to DVLA regulations for font, size, colour, and spacing.

Step 5: Attach Your New Plate

When you have the physical plates, simply attach them to your vehicle. This can be done using screws or adhesive pads. Make sure they are securely fastened and visible.

Step 6: Inform Your Insurance Company

Lastly, don't forget to inform your insurance company of the change to avoid any discrepancies in your cover.

By following these steps, you can create your own number plate, adding a personal touch to your vehicle. Always remember to stay within the legal requirements to avoid any penalties, and most importantly, enjoy the process!
