Why should I replace my number plates?

There is a wide range of reasons why you may want to replace your number plates.

If your front or rear number plates are missing or damaged, you must replace them. Driving without clear number plates is an offence and could see you pick up penalty points on your licence and a fine.

Sometimes, a previous owner of your car may have fitted number plates that were illegal or unclear.

If you are changing the registration number of your car, by transferring a personalised number plate, for example, then you'll need to swap the plates.

Finally, using the Halfords number plate service, you can personalise your number plates with our choice of badge, surround and trim, confident that you're not breaking any laws.
