fancyplates.com

just been on this website, looking at number plate colours/designs. it fails to tell you what is/isn't road legal. can anyone give me a brief outline of what is legal. i.e are black background/white lettering 'old style' plates legal? do rear plates have to be yellow? has anyone used their services and whats the legality of 3/4 size plates?

tar.

cheers m8, it is the obvious choice, but have you ever tried trawling through the info on that site. it's almost as bad as when you have to fill in one of their mind boggling forms

but yes, i'll give it a go.
