The on-line suppliers technically only produce show plates,and although they do sell plates that are perfectly road legal,they can't sell them as being so because you need to keep records of the car/reg number/owner/address etc.
Theres nothing wrong with the on-line plates,but I'd always recommend that you get them from a local source that keep their records up to date.All you need is the V5 and a proof of address(driving licence or utility bill in your name),and thats it.
The suppliers name and postcode should be on the plate,and the plate must be marked with correct BSAU number.....which escapes me now.
Although the MOT number plate laws are in limbo at the moment,I'm sure they will return at some point in the future and mean that all cars from 2001 onwards (51-plate) must have the correct information on them,otherwise the car will fail.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
