If in the unlikely event that the plates arrive at the purchaser damaged or faulty please send back for inspection by the companies technicians. Plates checked and seen to be damaged during mailing to the purchaser or found to be faulty will be manufactured again from scratch and dispatched. Damaged plates will be replaced at our discretion. Materials used in the companies plate building process ensure that the plates supplied always fulfill necessary quality standards laid down by law.

Plates supplied by the company ( Car Plates Direct ) are Show Registration Plates which are made and supplied for “off road” use only, car shows exhibitions, private land etc, where the law does not apply. Due to the strict restrictions of trade given by the UKs ‘DVLA’ all plates, including legal style layout or full design control are sold to the Purchaser on the basis of being for show use only and the Purchaser may risk prosecution if the registration plates are used on UK highways.

It is the purchasers responsibility to make sure all selection of spacing on the plate is compliant with relevant regulations..

Showplates are by their nature personalised products therefore refunds or returns are not valid if you change your mind or don’t like the received items. The online plate builder gives an example of the plate design and look you have chosen. The plates supplied by the company will resemble closely the image shown. They may though have slight differences due to website software limitations.
