Jap Import Rear Numberplate Size..

Recommended Posts

Hi folks... needa new jap import sized rear nunmberplate..

am I right in asuming they are 330 x 170 mm? or is it 330 x 175???

I have looked at fancy plates and can't see my size... I want a totally plain plate, stadnard font, no logos, no sub text...

Any ideas???

I don't think the police would appretiate me driving around without one up untill then though!!!

My local motor factors can get them done, but I don't want the my postcode on the back of the car, (for security reasons as much as looks!)

Maybe they are car specific???

Cheers for measuring though!!!

I'll work something out :lol:

I just read this on a site...

The Japanese plates are 6.5 (765mm) inches high by 13" (330mm) long;

Seems slightly contradictory to me!!!! but 6.5 x 13 sounds ok.. ish...

Hi Charlie,

Those measurements conform to the minimum UK legal requirement and are not exact Japanese plate dimensions.

Found this on the DfT site about legal sizes in the UK for Japanese/Import style plates:

Smaller size plates (for certain imported vehicles)

Character Height - 64mm

Character Width - 44mm

Character Stroke - 10mm

Space between characters - 10mm

Some more info here

All depends if you're looking for 'showplates' or UK legal roadplates ;)

Cheers Charis.. I know jap imports are allowed slightly smaller lettering (otherwise it would not fit!) the numberplate I will get is a standard Jap import plate (identical in size as to what will go o Lee's new car)

What? of course my car is a jap import!! ;)

I am not a fan of "other then stock" numberplates, its just this is all that will fit my car with JDM lights!!! :D
