Getting a private number plate made up as you want it to look

I am buying my mum a private reg no for her 60ieth this year.
I think garages have to have their name along the bottom of the plates - but is there anywhere I can get one made that would say Mum is 60 or something in tiny letters?
Also if I want to do different spacing of the letters - I know not legal but everyone else seems to do it!

Funny that- I know you can get what you want along the bottom cos i have read them on plates but would not know where to start.

Today I saw 'OUIJA' like that no spaces and yeterday 'RJ 4 KF' like that - both not normal spacing and both on the road!

Just remember your mum will be 61 next year and stil have the plate!!! Good luck!

Ah - but next year she will want to pretend that she is still 60! plus the beginning or the number is M60 - so I wanted it to mean something iykwim.

My dp has "monkey business" on his reg plate for his monkey bike - I'll ask him where he got it done if you like, when he eventually drags his lazy self out of bed...... ?

Cut and paste into your address bar and it will take you to a page where you can create your own "show plate".

Minutes of endless fun!!!!

You will have to order it as a show plate, as the bottom line text is not legal.

You can always ring them and ask, as they are very helpful!
