What are 4D Number Plates?

These increasingly popular number plates are made with 4D characters that make the laser cut acrylic lettering stand out more from the background of the plate.

They are considered premium products of the highest quality and design. Customised 4D number plates allow car owners to personalise their vehicle while controlling the overall aesthetic of their car. 4D plates look especially fancy on the showroom floor if you’re a bit of a car exhibitionist.

Are 4D Number Plates Legal?

4D number plates are 100% legal when they meet the following standards set by the DVLA:

  • They must contain black characters on a yellow or white background.

Are 3D and 4D Number Plates the Same?

The only real difference between 3D and 4D number plates is their finish and the materials they are made with.

While 3D gel number plates are made with polyurethane gel resin, 4D plates are made from solid acrylic to elevate the characters of the plate.

3D Gel Plates = raised, smooth, rounded edges
4D Plates = raised, “boxy”, straight edges
