Show Plates generally means illegal Number Plates. If you’re looking for illegal number plates then UK ShowPlates is not the place for you. There are a great many less reputable purveyors out there. Many work from their bedrooms and sell illegal number plates on Ebay. Other shady sellers claim to work from outside the UK in order to avoid DVLA laws. You’ll find their web sites show no telephone number or a legitimate UK address. These guys will sell you all the illegal plates you want and they will not ask you for ID or a valid DVLA document which shows you have a right to number plates showing your registration number. Be careful because you may finish up throwing your money down the drain with no chance of getting your money back from an illegal trader.
