Builder Guide

This is a quick number plate builder guide for users. The builder has been designed to offer a simple to use system for choosing between legal number plate options. Using it couldn't be easier, simply enter your registration and then go through the options one by one selecting your preferred choices. Each option has images representing its choices so you know at a glance what you're selecting. The plate preview is updated each time you make a choice showing an updated image of your plate.

The front and rear option allows you to select paired plates that will use the same options on each number plate. If you want a front and rear plate but want to use separate designs just build one plate and add it to the basket before building the next. This process will also allow customers to add car and motorcycle number plates to the same order.

When you open the plate designer you see the screen below. It contains the 3 main points of interest a plate builder, a preview of the current plate design and details of the order.
