Bestplate urge all suppliers to check their registration details with the DVLA. You can check your SID details in seconds via the SID check site: https://www.gov.uk/number-plate-supplier or through a quick call to the DVLA on 0300 123 0797. The DVLA and the Police are performing much more rigorous checks upon number plate suppliers to make sure they comply with the current legislation. If you’re not registered or your details are incorrect you can resolve the situation on the telephone. If you are a Bestplate customer, we do need to keep an up to date copy of your Registration Confirmation – V942 Form.
