Had my first long drive in the SC today, to swindon and saw an rrs in the fast lane with the number plate 'RRS 5NOB' made me chuckle If it doesnt scare you it isnt heavy enough

DVLA are not doing that. The Police may relax a bit on it due to paperwork/time but it's not an official 'relaxing'. As long as number plate recognition video cameras can read the correct Reg No then most will be fine.

Prefer RR Vouge S/C but they don't do Orange !

Brighton will pull anyone driving a car. Definitely a hate/hate relationship between Brighton council and cars, and I bet RRS is top of their list. Robin

I think it is more a case that with the reduced number of traffic police around you are unlikely to be caught but maybe APNR cameras can be utilised in their place - it amazes me some of the flagrant abuses of the number plate regulations that occur. I have a plate that reads something, but it does it without changing the spacing or shape of the characters 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for June delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 22 years and 11 LR products.....

As an ex boy in blue, once the plate is on the car it is the decision of the police officer at the time whether any action is taken or a bit of advice is given....the DVLA have no role or say in the matter.

ANPR will not flag up if the plate has illegal spacing, it will just read it and then search the records on PNC and DVLA for taxation.

It should also be flagged up at MOT's but if you have a new car every three years then this is not an issue Whistle Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
