We need "TWO" documents from you, one form of identification and one proof of entitlement. Please email us your a clear photo of your legal documents to GREATPLATEUK@GMAIL.COM or Whattsapp us 07392580684.

To get your number plates made you'll need to email the right legal documents required. We know this can be a real pain but we need to comply with the law, therefore we need to see one form of Identification for the person placing the order, and one form of entitlement for the registration number in relation to your order.

We will need to see original documents that:

  • prove your name and address
