What is going on here? are the guys trimming off letters from their license plates and making them smaller? or do you make your own license plates with your registered numbers and some people make them smaller than others. Sorry for my ignorance, it just caught me off guard as here we have two sizes, large and motorcycle.

Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to seeing more photos of your rides.
The deal with the police? In france, not deal, you pay the ticket!!!!

After for smaller plate, you can buy it on the web...

Thanks for answering my question. I was wondering what was going on. I wondered how can the police stop you if you have license plates on the motorcyles issued by the government. I guess if guys are buying ones off the internet then they are asking for a meet with the police.

Thanks for that ..Glad you are enjoying the thread. ....it will be a little quiet now 'till spring...so you have plenty of time to 'catch up'

As for the small number plates. Most bikes have the regulation size plates ..as otherwise you will get 'pulled' by the police and given a 30 fine every time you get stopped. If you don't do a lot of miles each year you might consider having a small plate and risking the odd fine ..but if you ride regularly it isn't worth the hassle / cost.
Anyone can get a small plate made up at a number plate makers (or on-line) these are sold as 'show plates' and are sold to you as 'not suitable for road use'.


The standard regulation legal plates must use a precise size and style of font and the spaces between the letters must be a certain size. I have seen police measuring this with rulers and 'templates' on bikes they have stopped on some occasions!

Info on the UK plate regulation sizes here :-

What I learned is that in the UK, ulike the states, the plates can be made by any authorized dealer. (And the dealer often has a small "advert" on the bottom of the plates.

Kam, here in the "Free States" the government issues the plates. Even if you want personalized plates, they make them. That's where the confusion creapt in for me. Didn't understand how folks could have a dealer's name ont he plate, but it still be legal (here those are temporary tags until you get your official state plate)
Perhaps that helps explain more?

Thank God we don't get extremes like 43C or -22C here !
