3D plates will not affect your MOT unless they are in a poor state of repair, not fixed on securely or do not adhere to the DVLA rules. Did you know you can fail an MOT if your plates are dirty enough to cover the details on it? Make sure you have cleared them of any dirt or grime before you take your car in!

    While our plates have 3D gel character and numbers, the plate is made from a reflective acrylic material which allows us to be DVLA compliant. People love their 3D plates as they add a bit of luxury to your vehicle and set them apart from the competition. Many people even get them as gifts for loved ones or as an accessory to help enhance a personalised number plate.

    How Long Will My Gel Plate Last?

    Our 3D gel plates are made from top quality supplied and will withstand the test of time. You can expect them to last the same amount of time as a non-gel version and they are a fantastic way of adding something special to your vehicle without having to pay lots for a personalised plate.


    The Low Down on 3D Gel Plates

    A 3D gel plate is made from a gel resin that is put over the characters on the plate resulting in a 3D effect. The result is a plate that stands out from the crowd, and the high gloss finish of our plates is both high quality and incredibly attractive. You may have heard of a domed plate that describes the look of the plate; this is the same as our 3D gel plates.

    How We Make Your 3D Plates

    When we get your order, we follow the following steps to make your plates:

    1. Print and cut the characters and numbers,
    2. Cover the characters and numbers with our special resin
    3. Bake them in our custom oven
    4. Cooling time to let them harden
    5. Check to ensure there are no chips or cracks.
    6. Remove the backing and adhere them to your plate
    7. Roll them to give a final smooth and check
