How do I fit a new UK number plate?

It is possible to get an auto shop to take care of the replacement for you, but you could also do it yourself. In order to remove your old plate and add the replacement, you’ll need to follow the steps below:

  1. Remove the UK number plate from the vehicle. You can do this by opening the plastic screw covers and unscrewing the screws that are fastened beneath the plate.

  2. Drill holes into the UK number plate. If you are using screws to fit the plate, you will have to drill holes into it yourself. There are a few ways to do so, but the recommended method is to drill the holes in from the back. In order to ensure you’re getting the position right, you can use the old plate as a reference.
  3. Fasten the number plate. Screw on the plate using new screws or keep your old ones and use them instead. Be sure that each corner is tightly secured in place. You can also put the plate in place by using double-sided adhesive tape. If you go this route, clean off both the mounting surface and the number plate to ensure proper adhesion before applying it. Then, attach the sticky pads to the plate. Finally, press it into place on the vehicle.
