Default Rear number plate

Good morning guys, a quick question for those that have been through the SVA, is there a set hight for the rear number plate. I have down loaded the manual and I think I'm suffering from legal jargon blindness, I have also down loaded the illustration from Westfield that gives all of the dimensions for the lights, minimum and maximum distances/heights etc.

Any help on this would be appreciated

(2) Subject to paragraph (3), a registration plate shall be fixed vertically or, where that is not reasonably practicable, in a position as close to the vertical as is reasonably practical at the front and rear of every motor vehicle in such manner that the characters of the registration mark shall, at all
times, be visible from the front or the rear of the motor vehicle..

I think there was an exemption for the front one as there is not much to attach it too, and there does not seem to be a height stated apart from it must not be above a certain height.

I found that, I just wanted to check up on the max/min height if there was one.
Knowing my luck if I just located one it would be in the wrong place.

I now use the general rule of thumb that is if 3/4 of the answer has already been posted in the question then by the time you have looked up the answer and posted a reply then the penny would have already dropped. Conclusion: I also wonder why I bother so lately I don't.

Hi,

There isn't really a minimum or maximum Height quoted for IVA as it looks to be based on the Road Vehicles (Display of Registration Marks) Regulations 2001. How vertical the plate is the main thing.

The Key thing is to make sure is you have a 520mm X 120mm minimum Space for a registration plate with clear visibility. Its worth noting the GB plates are smaller in length than this. (Although its not really a problem for our shape of cars).

Irrelevant to us as we go through IVA but there is a height Limit for European type approved vehicles. The plate for these need to be within 300mm - 1200mm from the ground.

Hope this helps,

Cheers.
