3D and 4D number plates in UK

3D and 4D number plates in UK are the talks of the town for quite some time now. You might be floating about which one to choose. Let us understand them better to help you choose:

3D Plates in UK

Sheet cut characters are covered with a polyurethane gel resin to make a 3D gel plate design. This gives them a raised upfront from the number plate making it prominent. 3D plate design can be made according to your requirement. You can choose between 3D Gel, 3D Carbon Brick Gel, 3D Carbon Brushed Gel, or 3D Glitter Gel. The resin mixed with this gel gives a high-quality output making the number plate design, a unique piece of art. 

4D Plates in UK

4D and 3D number plates resemble each other in many ways, but there is a key difference in how they are each made. This makes both the choices equally considerable with their own pros, whatever suits you. Instead of how gel resin is used on sheet plates to create that 3D effect, an industrial laser is used alongside cutting acrylic into perfect shapes to create the 4D effect. More precisely, each character in your 4D registration number plate will be equally perfect with zero room for errors. Due to the laser cut precision and method, 4D number plates do not just look better, they also allow a lot more in terms of quality and customisation, that gel resin 3D plates lack.

Are 3D and 4D number plates legal in the UK?

A lot of buyers, when talked about these two innovations, they question “If that is even legal to use?”
It is our pleasure to break it to you that the use of 3D and 4D plate design for your new car is completely legal under some regulations:

  • The nature of the 3D or 4D plates used must be reflective.
  • The registration number of both the front and the rear plate must be written in black font.
  •  It is mandatory to keep a white background for the front plate and yellow background for the rear plate.

Here at Reglocker, we make sure that all these rules are followed so as to provide a legal, DVLA approved number plate design. Now that you have a good idea of what both of these plates are like, and they are licensed and approved under the UK’s licensing authority, the matter of choosing between them is entirely your choice according to your interests and budget.
