Numberplates?

Does anyone know the exact requirements to get a numberplate made up?

Having not had a car capable of towing the boat since Christmas, I fitted a towbar to the D3 yesterday and then realized I need a numberplate for the lightboard.

I know you need a logbook for the car to get a number plate made up these days, but I was going to send the logbook off to the DVLA this morning to get me put on as the new owner.

Does anyone know if itís possible to get the numberplate made from the logbook prior to it being updated? Halfords said No yesterday.
Or have I got to wait until the DVLA post it back to me in a few weeks time?

As an aside I was really impressed with how easy it was to fit the towbar to the D3, and itís the adjustable height heavy duty one, not the easily removable one. All of 10 mins to route and plug in the electrics, and another 10 mins to bolt the arms to the chassis.

Thanks

Nasher.

You should be able to get them made up with the new keepers supplement part of the log book you may need photo id as well. Other option is make one with black marker for the short term or even better make on on the computer put in poly pocket tape on and looks almost like the real thing.

I use a sticky plastic letter one. Made up from letters bought from a car shop, on a numberplate template.

Just about legal.

I get 'em via Ebay. Cheap, quick, no docs required.

It makes a mockery of the latest legislation.

I've always got the place I've got cars from to do it for me in the price of buying the car.

Worth a call back to the garage to explain your problem of 'already having sent the v5 off' ???

No use if the plates are for trailer boards though.

Have to disagree there Mollers

When I bought my last ( new ) vehicle they happily supplied me with extra plates for both caravan and trailer board .
