    I've seen a few people who own different cars, but have the same number plate on each one. How is this possible? Do they have the cars registered as fleet vehicles or something???

    Its not possible, a single number plate can only be on one vehicle at any one time, it could just be that they have doctored the plate to make it look the same, eg a D made to look like an O...etc etc....

    Ehhhh weird. The guy who lives in our area has an Arnage, Range rover and a Lamborghini Countach all with same number plate! He's one of our customers, but I don't want to ask him how he does it lol.

    If that's true its definitely illegal. You can only have 1 car on 1 registration.

    Im sorry guys but I'm with Wai-Fan here. I have 100% seen it on 2 cars and I seem to come across it everyday as the guy always parks same place. Isle of man plates so there must be a different rule for them unless its classed as trade plates or something? I seen the bentley and gtr constantly switched.

    Here is a photo with two cars with the same registration - H5DJR. One is my 2007 Sportback which I was trading in and the other was my new 2009 Sportback which I was collecting the following day. The dealer organises the transfer of the plate. Not strictly legal as the 2007 Sportback had, by this time, been given a replacement registration number but I leave it the dealer to prepare and fix the new plates.
