Ferrari stopped by Nottinghamshire Police for not displaying front reg plate

The Ferrari 488 was stopped in Nottinghamshire by roads police.

A spokesperson said:

‘This is a cool looking car, it will still look cool with the front number plate attached!

‘Don’t get caught out like this driver, displaying your plates also assists us if your car gets stolen and complies with the law.’

The number plates on your vehicle must:

  • be made from a reflective material
  • display black characters on a white background (front plate)
  • display black characters on a yellow background (rear plate)
  • not have a background pattern
  • be marked to show who supplied the number plate
  • be marked with a British Standard number – this is ‘BS AU 145e’ for plates fitted after 1 September 2021

The characters must not be removable or reflective. If your number plates were fitted after 1 September 2021, they must also be a single shade of black.

Motorcycles and motor tricycles registered on or after 1 September 2001 must only display a number plate at the rear of the vehicle.

If you ride a motorbike or motor tricycle registered before 1 September 2001 you can also display a number plate at the front, but you do not have to.

Motorcycle and motor tricycle number plate numbers should be on 2 lines
