    Heres a bit of info from the dvla.....i've never heard of anyone getting points and it appears that after a warning and on the spot fine if you dont get the plates changed and get caught again then it could be points aswell...guess a lot depends on how you act when getting pulled..

    Tuesday, 30 June 2009
    Today it was announced that on-the-spot fines for illegal number plates are to double from £30 to £60.

    The DVLA are very specific as to how a legal number plate should be displayed - including font, letter size, and spacing.


    This includes failure to conform with rules on font, size and colour of number plates. The use of illegal number plates can have a significant impact on criminal investigations and crime detection.


    say the DVLA.

    The fine could be in addition to a 3-point penalty on your license. Repeated offence could even lead to the registration number being confiscated.

    So it looks like I could/would get 3 points for the plates???

    You'd have to be really abusive to the old bill to get points I would think, on a good day you'll prob just get a warning espically if you have the originals in the boot that you could swop, on not such a good day 60. Would have to be very extreme to get points.

    For a first time, one off 'plate ticket, you'll either get a VDRS which means you need to rectify the issue and take your car to a MOT test centre and have them certify this is the case

    OR

    You'll get a 60 fine.

    This talk of points for plates in the real world is nonsense.

    Everyone knows when they are taking the mick so if you're tear-arsing down the high street or something you will be more likely to get the fine as you've already demonstrated you're an arse so will just a warning do?

    And to those who talk of discretion - it's one of a coppers biggest strengths, but can also be a weakness in some ccircumstances - the debate could go on forever about how, why and when to use it.

    Mmmmmm. Do policemen only travel behind other cars? Might as well take my front plate off if they can't see it anyway!
