VOSA introduce new rules regarding number plate inspection at MOT time. These rules enforce standardisation on colour, lettering, logos etc.
Quote from VOSA
“We would urge anyone going for an MOT to ensure that their registration plates comply with legislation. The best way to do this is to consult our new leaflet which has been produced specifically to assist MOT customers. This action has been taken to help us to save lives, make roads safer, cut crime and protect the environment.”
