The Queens Platinum Jubilee, 70 years as Monarch – Number Plates

The Queens Platinum Jubilee 70 years as Monarch – Number Plates

This year will mark The Queens Platinum Jubilee, 70 years that our Monarch will have reigned as Queen.

In the UK we will get an extra bank holiday which will be from Thursday 2nd June to Sunday 5th June. The normal spring bank holiday will be moved from the end of May to the start of June, to create a 4 day Jubilee bank holiday weekend. This will be the first time any British Monarch has celebrated a Platinum Jubilee so there are lots of celebrations planned and lots of towns and villages will be holding street parties and having lots of events to mark this special occasion.

The Queen succeeded to the Throne on 6th February 1952 on the death of her father King George VI. At the time of her fathers death she was in Kenya and became the first Sovereign in over 200 years to accede while abroad.

Elizabeth II (full name Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor ) was born on 21st April 1926 in Mayfair London the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth). Her father acceded to the throne in 1936 when his brother King Edward VIII abdicated.

Elizabeth was only 25 years old when she became Queen Elizabeth II. Her Coronation was on 2nd June 1953 which was held at Westminster Abbey London.

2022 will mark 70 years on the throne and the Queen becomes the third longest reigning monarch in history. This will be the Queens Platinum Jubilee having celebrated her Silver (25 years), Golden (50 years) and Diamond (60 years) Jubilees in previous years.

We have compiled a small list of cherished number plates that are suitable for this magical event.

Number Plates – Perfect Gift for Mothers Day

Number Plates – The Perfect gift for Mothers Day, as unique as she is.

Why do we celebrate Mothers Day?

Mothers Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family or individual, as well as maternal bonds or motherhood and the influence of mothers in society.

During the Middle Ages, the custom developed of allowing people who had moved away from where they grew up to come back and visit their home or ‘mother’ churches, and their mothers, on the fourth Sunday of the Christian Festival of Lent. At the time it wasn’t uncommon for children to leave home to work when they were as young as 10 years old, so this was an opportunity for families to meet up again.

This became Mothering Sunday in Britain. As the dates of Lent vary each year so does the date of Mothering Sunday.

Although it is often called Mothers Day in the UK it has no connection with the American Mothers Day.

Mothers day is celebrated in many parts of the world and is most commonly in March or May. We also have other similar celebrations such as Fathers day.

Instead of giving your mother the usual gifts of flowers, perfume or chocolate why not give her the gift of a cherished number plate something as unique to her as she is to you.

We have cheap bargain number plates that range from as little as £116 all inclusive up to £1000’s.

If you would like to speak to one of our sales staff please call us now on 0116 235 0116 or if you would just like to browse through our extensive database please click here

At Motor Marks we offer various types of personalised number plates and are sure that we have something that will be suitable for you.

Number Plates – Upcoming changes to legislation from 1st January 2021

Introduction of the new standard for number plates : BS AU 145e

The British Standards Institute publishes the technical standards that all number plates are required to satisfy and this requirement is mandated in law. In March 2018, the BSI published an updated standard for number plates, BS AU 145e. This new standard will improve the durability of new number plates and enhance compatibility with on road enforcement cameras.

The new standard also requires that plates only display single shade black lettering removing the ability to use different shades to produce 3D effects or highlighting.

The agency has not seen any evidence to show that number plates displaying raised plastic, acrylic or perspex lettering (3D/4D plates) are able to meet the requirements of either the current or new the British Standard.

To take effect this new British Standard needs to be incorporated into the regulations and will become mandatory from 1st September 2021 but can be used from 1st January 2021.

This means that as a supplier you: must ensure that the number plates you supply can meet all the requirements of the standard and legislative requirements and should contact your component supplier or manufacturer if you are unsure whether the components they supply for you can meet the standard. It is an offence to supply number plates that cannot meet the standard

Changes to the eligibility for black and silver number plates

It will be specified in law from 1st January 2021 that only vehicles manufactured before 1st January 1980 are eligible to display “black and silver” number plates

As a supplier this means you: can only produce black and silver number plates for those vehicles registered prior to 1st January 1980 that have also been licensed in the historic tax class

Removal of the “EU” symbol

As part of the UK’s exit from the EU, government will remove the ability to fix a new number plate displaying the Euro symbol after the end of the EU exit transition period. Those registration plates fixed to a vehicle before 1st January 2021 will be unaffected.

As a supplier this means you: cannot produce a number plate with an “EU” symbol from 1st January 2021

Green Number Plates

Green Number Plates (GNP) will signify that the vehicle emits zero emissions and will consist of a green flash on the left hand side of a registration number plate. They will be non-mandatory and available to new and existing qualifying vehicles.

Regional emblems and identifiers that are currently permitted can still be displayed on the green flash.

Eligibility

Only vehicles with zero tailpipe emissions (e.g. fully battery electric, or hydrogen fuel cell) can display a green number plate. Hybrids and plug-in hybrids (including range extenders) are not eligible.

This applies to all vehicle types – cars, vans, taxis, motorbikes; and buses, coaches and HGV’s

Design

The regulations state that the green flash must be no less than 40mm in width, and no more than 50mm in width it must be retro-reflective and be matching or of an equivalent green to the Pantone 7481c colour reference
