So, I turn up to the store today with my documents, expecting to wait for a little while, while they make the plate.
Turns out they only make standard car plates in store. Bike ones they have to send off for and it takes 4 days. Good job I wasn’t in a hurry, but would it have killed them to state that on the website?
Some will and some won’t check number plates as per the MOT Testing Manual. How do you think so many cherished number plates are displayed illegally, they don’t all change their plates at MOT time and of course the DVLA will take a back seat on that because ‘cherished plates’ are a nice little earner.
Our old Astra passed MOT after MOT with a number plate in two pieces after about 5 years of this the same tester at the same testing station decided it was ‘excessively damaged’ and a fail but didn’t fail it, they supplied and fitted a new number plate. It’s all down to where the tester draws the line at the time of the test between slightly and ‘excessively damaged’.
