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

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.
Rat Rods Rule!

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.

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.

cheers sony but i may have found a place that understands what i mean

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.

Solution............get to know a guy in prison................Sorry, couldn't resist.
I think that you would be best off dealing with the outfit in England, even if the are expensive/unreliable. You will be further ahead.

Like Kevin said, you cannot just walk into a shop and have a plate made. While the styles of plates available differs somewhat from state to state, all states require registration prior to the issuance of license plates.
Many states, like here in Wisconsin, will issue what's called Temporary Plates which are good for a short period of time. These are most often used right after a person purchases the vehicle and is waiting for their permanent plates.
When a plate is lost or damaged, the owner must apply for a replacement plate and this can take a month or more.
Many of the states still make their plates in their State prisons.
Using a plastic "show" plate or an immitation plate while driving on the highway is VERY illegal.
Your best bet is to call California DOT offices (or the DOT office of the state where you're first unloading the vehicle) and discuss the situation with them.
Basically ANY operation of a motor vehicle on the highway without proper registration displayed is a violation. Your own country's registration is O.K. but normally to have a vehicle actually registered in a state requires the owner to be a resident of that state. But like I said earlier, you might be able to get a temporary intransit plate.
Hope some of this makes sense.

hahahahahahahahaha thats like guessing lottery numbers!
my number reads in this style (GGG 99 H ) this isnt the number DOH!
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?
|09-08-2004 10:16 AM|
|CrashFarmer2||Carpunk, tell us what number you need and if you get really lucky somebody might have a couple of old plates with the correct number on them. Then you could buy them from the plate owner.|
|09-08-2004 10:08 AM|
so if u lose or break yours u have to go to the d.o.t?
u dont have shops that have numper plate machines?
what about the people who make the show plates to say what ever u want for show purpouses they could do it dont they have stalls at shows or anything?????????????????????
i cant buy ANY plates and use them i HAVE to have my vehicles number on them
and all uk numbers are registered the fancy private plates u see over here were mostly off old cars then a bit of imagination applied to make them read different by moving bolts etc
u cant just think of a word and register it
