There are no specific laws that determine the size of your motorcycle license plate. However, it should be noted that all motorcycle license plates must be rectangular. But how big is a standard British motorcycle license plate? We don`t tend to go smaller than 5-digit record sizes as it can attract unwanted police attention, and frankly, it`s rare to find a license plate that has less than 5 characters. However, if you require a smaller license plate than the one mentioned or available on our « License Plates and Accessories » page, you can contact us using one of the many contact forms on the site. License plates are used by police and government to identify your vehicle – from motorcycles to scooters to mopeds. Police can use a vehicle`s license plate if the bike has been stolen or is involved in a crime, and the government can use it for tax and registration purposes. Since 2001, the law requires that each letter and number on your license plate be 64 mm high and 44 mm wide. This excludes the letter « I » and the number « 1 ». The character stroke (the thickness of the line) must be 10 mm and the distance between each character must also be 10 mm. The age identifier and random letters must be 30 mm apart, while the vertical distance between the age identifier and the random numbers must be 13 mm.
The distance between the top, bottom and side edges of the plate shall be at least 11 mm wide. If the motorcycle is slightly older and before September 1, 2001, but after September 1, 2001. It is mandatory to have all the correct legal markings on a licence plate which must be affixed to every public road in Great Britain. These markings include: the name of the company and postal code of the company that printed the licence plate; the standard British code BS AU 145d and the appropriate vehicle registration number. It is also mandatory to have the correct character spacing, character margins and font sizes printed on the license plate.

I`m not a fan of the very small one-line plates that people have, or maybe controversial, but I also hate 4D discs, they look so bad I bought a 7×5, but it looked remarkably small.
