Designed to stop car cloning, we are required to see proper and original identification and valid DVLA paperwork to purchase number plates for road use. However, presenting the correct documentation is a simple process.
To comply with UK laws, please send us clear pictures of your ID and DVLA-approved documentation to [email protected]. Please consult our list of accepted documents to find out what you will need to send across.
To speed up the manufacturing process, we will make your new number plates as soon as we process your payment. We will send them out as soon as we receive the required paperwork and proof of ID.
We provide registration plates, but unless you come to our unit, you will need to fit them. There are a couple of ways to install new number plates: either by sticking them on, or screwing them in.
Our fixing kits contain sticky pads for the simple “stick on” method - you’ll need three pads for each plate. They also have screws and screw caps, for those who want to drill number plates into place. If you drill, clamp the number plates down so they can’t move, and drill from the back.
We’ve been creating customised registration plates for over fifteen years. We offer standard-sized plates, which may be CNC-routed to make them a perfect fit for almost any vehicle.
Our ordering system allows you to specific your make and model for certain luxury cars, ensuring your plates have a perfect fit. We make all our numbers plates onsite at our premises in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester.
Demon Plates is proud to have nurtured a reputation for excellence in the manufacture of car registration number plates.
We also appreciate just how important personalisation is, which is why our selection includes a broad range of styles to suit every taste and requirement.
Is 3D text on number plates legal?
Yes! Using a two-tone effect means the characters have a 3D appearance which meets the rules set by the Driving Licence and Vehicle Authority (DVLA).
Please note that approved plate makers like us must use a font, and arrange letters and numbers, in a way that complies with the law.
What is a gel number plate?
We make our 3D gel number plates (or 3D ‘domed’ gel plates) by applying a special resin over the top of the black characters to give them a super glossy and curved finish to enhance their appearance.
Like those with a 3D text, they are fully road legal and meet the latest British Standard number (BS AU 145d until September 2021) which mandates the required characteristics of every number plate.
What are 4D number plates?
A 4D number plate has a raised style of font. These are usually 3mm deep and made from laser-cut acrylic characters attached with a water-resistant adhesive.
The plate itself looks like any other. The black digits make it stand out, achieving an attractive and personalised appearances. At Demon Plates, our skilled team prides itself on delivering a precise, smooth finish that meets the highest industry standards.
Are 4D number plates legal?
That is, of course, if approved plate makers like Demon Plates use a font, and arrange the letters and numbers, in a way that complies with the law. According to rules set by the Driving Licence and Vehicle Authority (DVLA), characters on a number plate can be 3D.
That means ‘4D’ number plates are fully road legal and meet the latest British Standard number (BS AU 145d until September 2021) which mandates the required specification of every number plate.
How much do 4D number plates cost?
Because ‘4D Perspex’ is a text style, the price for your number plates can vary.
When you select different sizes, borders, and badges, it will affect the cost accordingly.
What is the difference between 3D and 4D number plates?
Both are a fully road legal alternatives to standard number plates and have one distinguishable difference from them: raised characters.
The crucial difference between 3D and 4D number plates is also in their appearance. We make our 3D gel number plates (or 3D ‘domed’ gel plates) by applying a special resin over the top of the black characters to give them a super glossy and curved finish.
Meanwhile, the black digits on our ‘4D Perspex’ number plates have a deeper cut, which makes them appear more pronounced. This process also gives them more of a matte look.
Demon Plates do not manufacture show plates.
We only create new and replacement road legal number plates.
No. If you wish to have a set of private number plates made for your motor, you must own that registration number, and email us the required ID and DVLA paperwork. The DVLA must assign personal number plates, which must not be modified or transferred to new vehicles.
We can’t send out finished plates until we have the right ID and documentation.
We aim to start on your plates as soon as we receive an order.
Providing we don’t meet any obstacles, we despatch them on the same – or next – working day.
We offer a variety of different sized plates for various vehicle types and shapes.
- Square 4x4 (280mm x 203mm)
- Large rear 21x6 (535mm x 152mm)
- Motorcycle plates (228mm x 178mm)
If you cannot see the size that you want, then please ask.
We’re happy to create a plate shape or size that will display your registration number according to the legal requirements.
Personalise your new reg plate more flair and protect it by purchasing our plate surrounds. We offer three different styles. You can also choose country flags, religious symbols, and other badge designs, as well as 3D, 4D Perspex, and domed text.
These services are all available for both front and rear registration plates.
