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

Arfon

(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.

Look at most small cars and the rear plate is possibly 1ft of the ground,I would/will (eventually) put it low down but not too close to the edge of the panel.

Crikey Arf, bet U sorry U said anything! Looking at the range of height on cars on the road I don't think t would matter as long as it was a foot or so from the floor. If there is no dimension to work to, then there is no dimension to judge by.

Maybe I will think before I ask next time. How are things going your end Lee, is progress still going well, I've taken the haynes into work now and the Cobra has gone home. I'm trying to push on the haynes and put the Cobra on the back burner until I've finished. How is work are you still on the 350 what are orders like, I hear it has gone pretty quiet on the 380.
I'll give you a bell sometime and try to catch up with you and Ajay, saying that he did call into work yesterday for a quick catch up but I was just locking up for the weekend so maybe we need to get together soon maybe the top of the horseshoe pass for a coffee.
