Hey I'm a new owner of a Honda CD125T Benly which is (141) number, So after the restoration is it legal to have the number plate mounted to side on the front mudguard? 

As its not *Shri* number will it be a case?

I'm planing to have white nickel letters on black background for both front and back (as the picture below)

Thank you!

Hello Pasindu111

 

If I am not mistaken you can only have a front plate with a black background if the vehicle is a post "Sri" era. I can remember we been charged with 150 rupees by swapping the front and rare number plates in our Delica P25 (Delica front plate fitted to the side of the front bumper)

When officers are desperate for money, they will walk around to find some case 😀 So my advice is to try to avoid all the possible points.

 

regards,

JC

Didn't you get this in reverse ?

If the vehicle is Sri or before the front nuber plate can be black with yellow background. a white on black  when the dash came all vehicles moved to a black lettering on yellow back setup. For a brief period the front also became the same and then went back to the white letters on black setup. Then when the letters came the rear kept the black on yellow scheme and the front went to a black on white scheme. I beleive the only exception were the pre-Sri cars.

As for your fine back in the day..it could have been the yellow being on the front and the black in the back....like i said..there was a time when the - was introduced the RMV made a mess out of the front plate (both being black on yellow) and then reverting back to white on black which messed up a lot of people.  

As for the OP's question....sadly it is highly unlikely that you will be allowed to have the number plate sideways (SLP's logic being that the nuber plae should be clearly visible from front). Know people who got pulled over for having their number painted on to the bonnet of the car (charge being that the number is not clearly visible as it is facing upwards)
