4D number plates are the latest addition to number plate designs. They are made from 3mm and 6mm black precision laser cut acrylic characters, attached to our premium acrylic plates using high strength 3M adhesive. As a 4D number plate maker we know for a fact that the DVLA clearly states that ‘number plates can be 3D and have raised characters’. Therefore 4D plates are fully road legal and made to British Standards (BS AU 145e). We’re here for all your 4d licence plate needs.
We often get asked various questions about the legality of 4D plates, for example “are 4d plates legal” and “are 4d reg plates legal”, and the simple answer is Yes. 4d number plates are road legal! The DVLA states that characters must be solid black, which makes 4D number plates legal! Our black acrylic characters have been designed and laser cut to match standard Charles Wright Font text. The number plate material that you add this text style to is made to the same British Standards (BS AU 145e) that all legal number plates must adhere to. Get in touch with Plate Boss today if you need any further information on how our 4D license plates are legal.
If you’re thinking “what is a 4d number plate?”, then the answer is simple! “4D plates” are the latest addition to number plate text styles and are completely road legal too. The new raised 4D plate style adds an even more personal and premium feel to your bespoke number plate design, adding an extra level of depth and shadow to your number plate.

In the past, you have been able to add a different colour to fit underneath the black acrylic. We call these 4D Neon number plates, which are referred to in other places as 4D Crystal plates.
These coloured number plates were incredibly popular for a time, particularly for shows and events. However these are no longer considered road legal and as a DVLA authorised number plate maker, we do not make 4d neon plates any more.
We’re often asked “are 4d coloured number plates legal?”, and the simple answer is No!, 4D Neon plates are not road legal. So if you’ve seen some at a show or on another site and wondering “are 4D neon red number plates legal?”, then no, unfortunately they are not!

When you add different plate materials, borders and badges this will increase and accordingly. If you’re looking for cheap 4D number plates, then we always aim to be competitively priced but rest assured we never ever compromise on quality!
