View Full Version : Number plate & MOT
02-16-2004, 11:32 AM
my rs is having its first mot on friday:mad:
ive gone round the bike checking tyres brakes etc and the only thing i think it might fail on is the number plate
it might be too small!!
how strict are these mot's on plates?
it doesn't look stupid just slightly smaller numbers and letters with a slightly diffent font
is it likely to fail?
i shall take a photo tomorrow to show you guys and see what you think

Could do, some places are very fussy at times about what passes and what doesn't. Best bet is get a standard one made up, they can cost as little as £5 from some places and it only needs to be temporary and always handy to have incase you get pulled and need to put a legal one on. I always do that with my bikes and plus it's a good reminder of the bike when you sell it, currently got 3 # plates on the wall in my garage of my own and a few of my dads somewhere!

Yep, good advice, put a legal one on for the MOT & change back afterwards.:cool:

it PASSED!!!! lol
not even an advise, to be honest didnt think it would fail on anything (apart from no plate) as its the first mot and previous owner put new tyres on it and looked after it etc
thanks to kamikaze_uk who saved me the price of a new plate (extra beer money) nice one bud
strange how bike mot's dont check the plate for spacing letters etc but when its car mot if its the wrong shade of yellow or white they fail it...lol
anyway i aint complaining saved me ££ lol
so to anyone who has a mot coming up on there bike and there not sure about there number plate being legal dont worry from the mot point of view it will pass.
its just the plod that take an intrest
