Number Plate Size for Test?

So i have my test next week, borrowing a friends bike for it but his plate is very, very small. I can't find any place where it says a legal size for a bike only all 4+ wheelers. Should i just put a normal-ish size one on and work away?

I think with the current sized one they might tell me to jog on and even if they don't, first impressions and all that.

I have a standard sized one.
You can borrow it for the test - but I'd need it back afterwards mind..

Re: Number Plate Size for Test?

Mine are legal sized plates and, to my eyes, fuckin' tiny!

Got them from the company Gixxer linked to.

If it helps I can get the dimensions of mine for you to compare your mate's plate with.

that'd be for a cage - measure out 520mm!

nope, any vehicle mechanically powered, square ones meant for bikes, current regs. 340mm x 220mm. what youre quoting does not apply to mechanically propelled vehicles.

by the way , none of mine meet the regs either.

Do please Damien, ill probably try and get the 190*150mm(7.5*6") ones. The cage ones are too big, i reckon wind would take off the oblong or square one and the oblong would nearly be wider than the bike!

Re: Number Plate Size for Test?

Just go to any local bike shop,they’ll normally sell you a legal sized plate and the numbers/letters to put on yourself.
Put it on for the test,then let your mate keep it afterwards.
He might have a use for it down the line.

The plate on the SV is 230mm x 75mm (9" x 3"). Letters & digits are 40mm high.

The plate on the ZRX is 178mm x 127mm (7" x 5").

I don't have the bike with me, so I can't tell you what height the letters & digits are on that one. It was the middle size of the three "square" options available. It fitted the dimensions of the shortened mudguard perfectly, which is why I didn't bother going for the smallest.
