+1 there HmmmUk

Done mine in exactly the same way.....

If you have your V5 - its immediate - best to get your plates ordered on internet before you hit DVLA site - like hmmmuk says, not good to be driving with false ish plates.
But dont forget to tell your insurance of the change - you would be surprised how many forget...

UPDATE:
Here's a better link for assigning a plate:
https://www.gov.uk/put-registration-number-vehicle

They have a note showing:
You must put your private number on your vehicle straight away if you apply online.

Thank you very much for the detailed response.

I'm still waiting for my logbook, so I guess I can't do much without that at the moment.

I was able to get the plates made from the ebay place recommended on here and they didn't check any ID or any authorisation letter from DVLA. Is this normal?

Their small print will probably say not for road use, I doubt the plates will have a BS number either. I bought my Stag number plates online without any I.D

Always buy mine from eBay...... no they dont come with the BS number on.
They do class them as show plates and as so no ID is required. A lot cheaper as well.
I have to have 2 sets......one for the MOT
But never had a set fail MOT without the BS number on....

They advertised them as road legal plates, hence why I went with them. 

I've just had a look at them and they display these markings. Does that mean they are legitimate and road legal? Got me slightly worried now as they were cheap.

I was told they've changed the MOT and no BS number or postcode are required now.

Phew!!! Thanks. 

I went with the smaller sized number plate as there are only 5 digits. To be honest I probably would have returned them if they weren't legitimate, as they were clearly advertised as 'road legal'. 

Purchased from here:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5-Digit-Short-pressed-number-plates-metal-car-registration-reg-GB-UK-Road-Legal/292377014104?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

These were the cheapest ones as most of the others were this price for one plate! I did however put in a cheeky offer of £14.80 (don't ask why I offered that price), but they accepted and it was free delivery. Can't go wrong really.

Side skirts fitted to my Evoque today - will share pics over the weekend. Really happy with the service received from the company. Met a guy there from Leeds who was having the electric side skirts fitted to his Vogue for an eye-watering price of £2000 (mine cost a tenth of that in comparison). 

In the meantime here are pics of my cousins SVR I was talking about earlier in the thread.

Enjoy Smile


Drove this baby the day he got it and it is bloody awesome. Makes my Evoque feel like a toy!

I think that's an exclusive colour for the SVR only. Don't think it's available on other models. Unless of course you wrap/paint.

There's a similar colour on the Landmark limited edition model which hopefully will become available on the whole range soon.

Yes very nice colour, more of a sky blue with a touch of pearl.

No LEDs though
