I couldn’t recommend them enough, literally deserve 5 star rating. User friendly website to create my number plates and the price is reasonable. Great customer service which they amended my order for me quickly as I ordered the wrong format. Free next day delivery as well! I was so glad and happy that quality were very good. Highly recommended.

Incredibly quick service & a really reasonable price. I got a short (18”) plate in 5mm 4D with a black border, free fittings & delivery for £40!! Everywhere else was about £70, so I couldn’t be happier. This was a birthday present so I’m immensely pleased, thankyou!

Top class service. Plates arrived quickly, packaged excellent to ensure no damage in transit, and kept fully updated with the order throughout the process. Would definitely recommend and I will 100% be using these guys again in the future. Look no where else to get your plates apart from APLATES! Having ordered from somebody else and they never turned up, the reviews left by other customers for this company re-assured me that they offer a top class service with no issues. They certainly live up to the customer experience that we all look at and rely on these days and they did not disappoint.

Thanks once again 👊

Top quality plates and were literally with me within 2 days! I couldn’t believe it, fast service usually means not so good quality but here we had a double whammy! My dad bought his plates elsewhere before I found A Plates and is jealous of mine, especially my 4D emblem! Will be purchasing more over the next few weeks!

WHAT SETS OUR 4D PLATES APART

At Aplates, we exclusively use the highest-quality materials available on the market. We combine deluxe acrylic with laser-cut gloss black characters to create our iconic 3mm & 5mm depths. This formula has been tested extensively to maximise plate durability and retention.

Our 4D number plates are completely legal for use on UK roads. Furthermore, they are also MOT compliant, so you can rest assured your 4D experience will be carefree.

As a DVLA-registered number plate supplier, we ensure our plates conform to the British Standard, BSAU 145e. If the registration has been spaced correctly by the customer, our 4D plates will be made with the mandatory supplier details and the British Standard printed on the lower-middle and lower-right side areas of the plates.

Our plates undergo vigorous testing procedures to ensure they adhere to each and every legal parameter set out by the DVLA. This includes a state-of-the-art ANPR camera test, so you can rest assured we comply with Police regulations. Our plates have even been tested by our local constabulary, and we’re pleased to say they passed with flying colours.

We use cutting-edge laser technology to bring you the best quality plates available on the market.

Our 4D plates have been tested extensively in order to maximise their durability and premium condition. As a result, the plates are weather-proof, and they can even withstand being jet-washed from distances over 1.5m.

We include a free pack of sticky pads in your delivery for every plate ordered. These 10 strips provide an extremely strong grip which allows for a quick and easy installation.
