Green number plates for EVs
The new green number plates, which became available on 8th December 2020, is identifiable by a green flash on the left-hand side, replacing the blue flash used on Euro and flagged plates. These plates are only available for zero emission vehicles. Petrol range extenders (i.e. BMW i3, LEVC TX taxi) and hybrids do not qualify and cannot display green plates.

How many sticky pads do I need?
The sticky pads are on a sheet of 4 pads. If applied properly, 2 pads will hold a number plate just fine, but I would recommend 3 pads if the surface is flat or 5 pads per plate if the surface is curved. It is best to put 2 pads side by side at each end of the plate and 1 pad in the middle.
These sticky pads may seem expensive for what they are, but they work. We buy them from our number plate supplier so can trust the quality. We no longer stock fixing screws and caps, as we now stick all our plates down, regardless of the surface. Drilling the number plate for screws can deteriorate the plate over time as water can get in.

How do I fit my new plates?
The video below shows you can to replaces your plates.
Since making this video, we no longer use screws, regardless of the surface. If used properly (i.e. warmed and fixed to dry and clean surfaces), sticky pads will properly fix number plates and will allow them to be fixed to a curved bumper. Drilling the number plates can deteriorate the plate over time as water can get in.
The DVLA was actually going to ban such fixings under the new plate regulations, but for now, they have back tracked on this one.
