Quality Control

We only use the highest quality, British manufactured, components in the production of our number plates. In addition to this, we employ a stringent quality control process to ensure that all components and number plates meet our standard for quality. If you follow our social media pages (Facebook & Instagram), you may have seen we regularly discard any components which fail our quality control inspection, as they wouldn’t produce the perfect product that we strive to make. Our company mission is not only to make your vehicle stand out, but we also aim for every customer to be completely satisfied with their experience and the quality of their product.

All of our number plates can be washed with a pressure washer without any fear of damaging the number plates, and they won’t fade in the sunlight either.

Fixing Kits

We stock and sell fixing kits which have been rigorously tested to ensure they provide the best mounting solutions for you to attach your new number plates to your vehicle. We have three options:

Sticky fixer kits include a pack of 10 industrial strength sticky pads, which will be enough to affix both a front and rear number plate to your car.

Screw fixing kits include 4 screws, 2 white screw caps and 2 yellow screw caps to blend in with your number plates.

When will I get my plates?

Orders will be manufactured from Monday to Friday.

Tracked 24: Your plates will be dispatched within 24 hours after you provide evidence of ownership of the registration. The Royal Mail aims to deliver these parcels the next day, so this is our quickest turnaround.

Tracked 48: Your plates will be dispatched within 48 hours after you provide evidence of ownership of the registration. The Royal Mail aims for a two day delivery timeframe on Tracked 48.

Tracked 24 and Tracked 48 both provide a tracking number, which we will email to you, so you will know where your order and your documents are at all times on their way back to you.

Please note we do not dispatch on a Sunday or during Bank Holidays so please adjust your expectations accordingly. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Are these number plates road legal?

Please note that by law we include our company name, postcode and BSAU number on the plate. The font style for all our plates is Charles Wright which is the legal UK road font, compliant with the law. The DVLA confirm that three-dimensional characters are legal and compliant with road laws, this includes ‘4D’ number plates, as 4D is only an industry standard name, and they are still classed as three-dimensional.

What legal documents do I need?

When buying number plates online, the only way to operate fully legally is for the Registered Number Plate Supplier to see the original physical documents in person. If you aren't local to us in County Durham, you will need to send us the documents in the post. The process is simple and the steps to take are explained in depth after you have placed your order. Once we have received your documents, we will produce your number plates and return the documents securely along with the number plates, using a tracked postal service.

What size plate can I have?

The standard UK size for number plates are 520mm by 111mm. Please note this will vary if you opt for a shortened plate option. Shortened plates are cut down to a unique size depending on the length of your registration. Unlike our competitors, we cut these to whichever size you require rather than using pre-made short plates. We produce them to have a 16mm margin on all edges of the number plate, which leaves a nice even clean finish to your plate. If you require a specific size, please state this in the special requests box after clicking purchase. Legally, your number plates cannot have a margin any less than 11mm.

What if I want show plates?

Utopia Plates does not sell show plates, as they could be used on the road, even though the manufacturer may sell them on the basis that they will not be. To avoid this, we will not sell show plates (this includes tinted plates, blank plates or those with non-standard spacing). We will only produce fully road legal plates, with standard spacing (as it appears on your V5C).

Kenny Macleod

If only I could give you six stars!

From start to finish, Utopia made my first experience of buying a private registration plate incredibly easy. Even when I forgot to order the actual plates, a quick call was all it took. I received my plates today with all paperwork handled by Utopia - I'm beyond delighted with the service. If only I could give you six stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Chris Lines

Utopia's 'do-it-for-you' service completely eased my mind

I was a bit apprehensive about buying a private plate online, but Utopia's 'do-it-for-you' service completely eased my mind. Everything was sorted in less than a week—new plates look great on the car. Highly recommend Utopia Plates!

Lee Hardy

Fantastic service at very reasonable prices

I bought a private plate for my daughter's birthday, and the transfer was done as soon as I uploaded my logbook—on her birthday! Fantastic service at very reasonable prices. I’ll be coming back soon for my own plate.

David Bedford

Excellent service all around

The 'Done-For-You' service made buying a private registration for my partner and setting it up on the car incredibly easy. Excellent service all around.

James Thompson

I’ve ordered from Utopia a few times now, and gosh where do I start?!

The quality of these plates are top notch, and there is never any fault. At first, I was a bit hesitant to send off my documents, but there is honestly nothing to worry about at all. The customer service at this place is also very good, which is very reassuring when your plates are being made & shipped.

As soon as Utopia received my documents, they made the plates and they were shipped back to me straight away.. what more could you ask for? They even went out of the way to upgrade my shipping so I received it quicker with it being the Christmas season.

I’ve had cheap 4D plates in the past and it’s never ended well, so spend the extra few quid for the peace of mind that it’s in good hands, and that you’re going to get a super high quality number plate.

Amaar Malik

Thanks Utopia Plates for sourcing our new plate!

We chose Utopia Plates to act as broker for a registration we found from a private seller. After reading about so many scams online for number plate sales we asked Utopia to step in and act as the middle man. The whole process was smooth and we had our new number a few hours later. The registration is perfect for our Car Care business - W444 SSH - Happy Customer!

I was dubious about sending my…

I was dubious about sending my documents through to get the plates made however the guys at Utopia Plates reassured me that it was safe and necessary. The plates are of a significantly hi quality and reasonably priced in comparison to other companies.

Plates and Documents dispatched the same day my documents arrived at Utopia Plates and were on my hand 2 days later. Could not recommend Utopia Plates HIGHLY ENOUGH

Absolutely fantastic. Initially I was a bit dubious once I realised I had to send my documents away but previous reviews and comments put my mind at ease. Highly recommend and definitely will be using again. My order arrived extremely quick and very well packaged, literally can not fault, Thanks once again


Fantastic service provided and a wide range of choices

Fantastic service provided and a wide range of choices, I live close enough as to where I could go down in person to their unit and purchase these in person. Honest and professional service and was all done in a matter of 15 minutes. I asked about other services and they answered the questions I fired at them and gave me quotes on the other services I enquired about. I would highly recommend this business to others and I myself will hopefully be using them in the future also.
