Vintage & Classic Plates

Proudly handmade in Sheffield, we offer the largest range of vintage and classic number plates in the country.

From April 1st 2019, vehicles manufactured before April 1979 can display a classic black and silver number plate - registrations ending with 'T' or anything before. The 40 year tax exemption date rolls forward automatically each year on April 1st. 

Please note, vintage number plates have a 3-5 working day lead time, excluding cast aluminium and hand painted which can take a little longer.
