I've just told them its for the trailer - most garages will do it for nothing. They just instruct thier 'apprentice/tea boy' etc to get with it. Clearly not if you are buying a smart car however ........

Probably believable with a Disco you might want to tow something.......

Yeah, but what if you don't want a new vehicle with your free plates?

Amazingly, some people just want a number plate. I know it's a hard concept to grasp.

Thanks all, and especially to Carl for the offer.

Stopped in our small local motor factors on the way home and he was quite happy to supply a plate.

Sounds about right. I always use Partco in Southsea for numberplates, never had a problem using the new keepers supplement in the past

It really is a joke, it's a piece of p**s to get an illegal one but a pain in the ass to get a proper one. The idea is to be fully legal it has to have the name of the supplier on the bottom. If you look at a halfords one it is embossed under the letters in the middle. Most of the ones from ebay etc are not. That said I don't think the old bill give a toss as long is is of legal spec with respect to letter size etc....
