Q909: What are the legal requirements in relation to number plates?

It is an offence to alter, re-arrange or misrepresent the characters on a number plate in a way that makes it difficult to distinguish the registration number of a vehicle. Offenders are liable to a maximum fine of £1000, they also risk having the registration number withdrawn permanently from use and the vehicle may fail an MOT.
