You can only have square plates if its imported

You won't pass a MOT. Or you will if you know someone who's willing to let it go but most won't

We failed a integra type r and the lad complained about it so we told him why and had to prove it was a import...

Order from that craigsplates I linked you to last night if they do the font you want. There is a form online somewhere that shows you're allowed smaller characters on the plate IIRC. Print one off and carry it with you in the car incase you get stopped. I've never been stopped for a small plate on my motorbikes but each police force has a different attitude towards them.

just measured the plates 13x7 and being an import you can have the smaller text and numbers. I read into this a lot as I am planning to put a private plate on with the smaller text and numbers. It also has all the details you need like the corner number etc...

Cheers mate

On Craigsplates website it says standard import size 13x6.5 but probs go for them off platesforcars coz wanting black 3d gel with type r logos on, only do 13x7 or 13x6 on there so will go for 13x6 double the price on here but be worth it as will look better
