To clarify some things, for those of you that don't know, in the U.K. and many other countries abroad the license plate is issued to the car, for the life of the car (as stated before). There permanent.

So in the event that the car is sold to someone else the plates go with the car.

My suggestion would be to search California State licensing bureau's website "procedure's for obtaining personalized license plate's". It would be preferable to call so you could fully explain your situation.

This would be the only possible way of being able to select what you want on an American license plate.

P.S. You could search other State websites as well the procedures will vary from state to state and you may find it to be easier in one over the other. Then they could mail them to you.

Good Luck

big bird what the hell are u talking about?
carpunk,

When I read the first posts, I was under the impression (as were some others) that you were bringing your vehicle with you on holiday and you wanted U.S. plates with your British number on them, what we call a personalized plate.

I've been with the Wisconsin State Patrol for over 26 years having moved up in rank from trooper, to sergeant, to lieutenant and now Director of Programs at our training Academy so you might say I'm more than a bit familiar with motor vehicle laws.

I was merely trying to give you some helpful information, but I'm sorry if my response was not what you were looking for...that's what the hell I was talking about.

imitation plates made up with whatever i want on them
I have a hard time believing your gonna be able to get plates. It was a pain in the *** for me to even get plates...and I LIVE HERE!!!! I had one original black and yellow, I told them I wanted 1 plate made with my numbers I own on it. They wouldnt do it, you know what they did took my lisence plate from 1965 and kept it!!!! Teeeed me off so I raised my voice, and the lady put out a sign if you yell you will be jailed. I wound up sayin WEll ill just have someone make me a plate with my numbers on it, She says NOO thats illegal I'm like WTF! I own the damn numbers! I mean like how much of a crime is it they are my registerd numbers...This state is a paain in the buttt when it comes to things you want/need from the government. What wound up happening they "stole" my black and yellow plate, I even offerd her 50 dollars for me to keep it and her wipe the number from the computer I woulda liked to have my original plate on the wall GRRR ..and they gave me 2 new white PRESTAMPED PLATES....they got a huge pile of prestamped plates. If your car isnt registered here insured here and u dont have a drivers lisence here its highly unlikely your gonna get that plate...imitation plate=illegal. Sorry to give ya bad news but I really think this is gonna be a hard one to do.

i just want a set of blank plates and have my numbers pressed in how hard can it be?
as i said surley the show plate makers can do it?
like the novelty ones u see ,,hot350,,454vet,, 426 mcl,, tuf 460,,
that sort of thing where do they get them made?

Those so called novelty plate that you call novelty plates are personalized plates registered thru the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. A person in the U.S. can apply for a personalized plate and if it is available can get it made and returned in about a 30 day time period. Yes the laws in England and the US vary and for what you are asking would get a US citizen about 10 years behind bars. They are very strict about registration and licensing of vehicles over on this side of the drink. Vehicles are stolen every few seconds over here so they do everything in their power to try and deter theft. Registration, titleing of vehicles, and notarization of all paperwork pertaining thereto. Hope you find what you are looking for but most on here probably can't help you.

fiberglass plates?

I didn't know you could buy such and item.. The only why I knew you could get a plate was through the B.M.V. I guess if your plate dosn't need to be legal for the USA you can use them punk.

Yea, I checked out that site when I seen you posted it. I just wish I had known about that site when I just needed my front black and yellow plate.....No one would have ever known the difference. ***sigh*** But that might work depending on the laws over there where you are at....Sounds like a plan good luck with it Carpunk.

yeah no worries 1fast to be truthfull they seem rather expensive
im sure there must be others around doing it
over here theres allsorts of laws about plates but if your vehicle was made b4 1972 i think? u can run silver on black plates non reflective but after that its black on yellow and black on white (front)
the people over here doing them take ages but they wil stamp whatever u want on them i had a set years ago white on blue with my number and on top it said minor alterations (it was on a rodded morris minor pick up) they also even supply the sticker things u have on them in the corners? + any state design u want they have been doing them for years theyre called statesplates
i just figured in the land of the free i could just get a set on the spot and real cheap

just found a few more doing them maybe i shouldhave just done a search lol
try this 1 customlicenceplates
maybe someone should go down there and bust there *****
even a pic of the govenor of FL flaunting his lack of respect for the law!!
that low life should get 10 years in rykers
