    Hi I have just got my new black front grill and the plate fitting bit is completely flat and looks sweet as it is so can I legally just put front plate in passenger side of front window well displayed ?

    From what i can gather, if its not fixed properly at a location in front of the front wheels then your looking at a £60 fine. (mostly camera vans that send you these)


    Sling it on the front bumper, looks gash in the windscreen in my opinion.

    look here, m4s06000301

    Would seem, as long as its FIXED then it should pass an MOT.

    It's deemed that a number plate is not being clearly displayed when placed on the dash through the windscreen. It should be on the front bumper...

    Can't see it being vertical, either! And it's not 'at the front'....
