Does Halfords make replacement number plates?

At Halfords, we can create a brand new set of road-legal number plates for just £36. If you require only the front or rear number plate, we can make these for just £18 each.

You can order your new number plates online, and they'll be ready to collect at your choice of Halfords store.

You'll need to bring current proof of identity and proof of entitlement (V5) to your local store when you pick them up to prove the vehicle is yours.

What identification do I need to have number plates made up?

We'll need to see the original documents that:

  • Prove your name and address
  • Show you're allowed to use the registration number

Identity documents

You can use the following to confirm your name and address:

  • Driving licence
  • Utility, Council Tax or rates bill from the last 6 months
  • Bank or building society statement from the last 6 months
  • National identity card

The following will confirm your name only:

  • Passport (doesn't have to be issued in the UK)
  • Bank or Building Society debit or credit card
  • Police warrant card
  • Armed Forces identity card

Proving you can use the registration number:

The DVLA stipulates that you must provide one of the following to show you're allowed to display the registration number:

  • Vehicle registration certificate (V5C or V5CNI)
  • New keeper supplement (V5C/2 or V5C/2NI)
  • Certificate of entitlement (V750 or V750NI) to the number
  • Retention document (V778) (not applicable in Northern Ireland)
  • A renewal reminder for a tax disc or SORN (V11 or V11NI)
  • Temporary registration certificate (V379 or V379NI)
  • A number plate authorisation certificate (V948) with an official stamp from the Driver and Vehicle
  • Licensing Agency (DVLA), Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) or Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA)
  • A letter of authorisation from a fleet operator (including a lease or hire company) quoting the document reference number from the registration certificate
