Buying & Fitting Number Plates to your Vehicle
Now you've bought your personalised number plate and once you've received your V750 certificate, the next step is for you to get the number plates made up.
Getting your number plates made online is quick and hassle free and most of the online companies allow you to design the number plates the way you want them.
Just make sure you have your V750 entitlement certificate to hand when making enquiries. They need to be sure that you are the owner of the registration mark. We have included a list of links to online number plate makers below.
And Remember; The front number plate must be white and the rear number plate must be yellow!

Fitting Your Number PlatesYour last job is to fit the number plates to your vehicle.
You can attach the number plates with sticky pads but we feel that bolts are best.
Fixing number plates with bolts is a job that some people would have you believe needs a master's degree in mechanical engineering to complete when in fact it couldn't be simpler.
You will need:
1. A cordless or electric drill
2. A 4mm to 6mm drill bit
3. A Philip's screw driver
Doing the Job:
1. Remove the original number plate from the vehicle (Pop open the plastic caps and undo the screws)
2. Place the original number plate exactly on top of the new one and drill holes in the new number plate using the original number plate holes as a template.
3. Screw new number plate to the vehicle using the original number plate holes in the bumper (Don't forget to put the plastic caps on the screws first).
Below is a list of links to suppliers of various types of number plate fixing kits in case your chosen number plate maker didn't throw one in.
If this fixing procedure seems a little tricky (!! then you probably shouldn't try to feed yourself, unaided!!), or the bumpers on your Enzo are more valuable than a street in a Birmingham suburb then it's probably for the best that you pop down to your local mechanic or car body shop and offer one of the lads £20 to fit the number plates for you.
It should only take him ten minutes and you'll probably find that he'll supply any new plastic caps or bolts that may be required. And then you're done.....!
Congratulations on your new personalised number plate! Enjoy.
