It is illegal to drive a vehicle with a broken / damaged number plate. Lava’s Garage have got you covered – we can fix or replace your number plates * for your car or bike. We can also make you an extra set of number plates for towing.
What do we need to see?
Proof of Identity:
National ID card issued by the Government of a state of territory other than the UK
Police warrant card
Armed forces identity card
Proof of Entitlement:
A Vehicle Registration Certificate (V5C) (Please be aware only the new red V5C Certificates are accepted, and not the old blue Certificates)
