Q&A - Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: There are so many car fonts on the market, are all license plates legal?
A1: According to Hong Kong law, there is only one font that can be used on the license plate. Please refer to Hong Kong License Plate Regulations for details. However, the police program earlier suggested that the police can accept angular fonts. Our shop also asked the transportation department in writing, and the prescription also accepts multiple fonts, but we don’t know the criteria and specifications. It seems.

Q2: How long does it take to build a pair of license plates?
A2: It takes about 5 to 10 minutes to make a pair of common standard license plates, and 1 to 30 days for other special orders.

Q3: How long does it take to install a pair of license plates?
A3: It takes about 2 to 20 minutes to remove and install a pair of license plates, depending on the condition of the vehicle.

Q4: Is there a maintenance rack for the license plate?
A4: Our store does not provide license plate maintenance, because the license plate is used outside the car body, and like the windshield and the car body, it will be affected by stones, wind and other objects when driving, and the license plate is the first to bear the brunt.

Q5: Can I make a pair of license plates and put them in the house for decoration?
A5: Yes, there is no law in Hong Kong that restricts the need for any information registration or application to own a vehicle license plate.

Q6: The police prosecuted me for putting up a license plate. Can I pursue the license plate production company?
A6: This question is debatable. If the license plate production company misleads the customer by making false statements to the customer and the customer is deceived and prosecuted, and evidence is needed to confirm the matter, it should be a civil claim. The license plate production company has no direct legal responsibility. When its customers (car owners) use unqualified license plates, the car owners should pay attention to the specifications of their license plates and must choose a license plate production company carefully to protect their own interests. But there is another situation - law enforcement does not know the law - see for details

Q7: Does the embossed license plate fit the frame?

A7: Embossed characters are legally acceptable, but they must use qualified fonts and be welded or firmly nailed to the surface of qualified reflective materials. The fonts cannot have crystal interlayers and can be seen from any position 15.25 meters behind. every word.
In fact, the Transport Department did quote Chapter 374 2 (iv) of the Act to respond that "any English letter or numeral on the registration number must be irremovable; if the English letter or numeral is manufactured separately, as long as it is welded or firmly nailed to the The surface of the name plate does not violate this regulation. In addition, if the letters and numbers are displayed on a flat plate, the letters and numbers may be raised on the plate. 》However, from our store’s experience, crystal license plates (that is, with a transparent interlayer) have a chance of being prosecuted and disqualified from the perspective of the police and vehicle inspectors. However, there are also uniformed police officers from the Ministry of Communications explaining to the store that crystal license plates are legal. Proof that the "Transportation Department" and the law enforcement "police" are two agencies, so multiple interpretations already exist. We also asked another police chief who came to install the crystal sign. He said that there is no express prohibition or permission, and the law is very vague.

Q8: Explain that the license plate of your place o has the fine characters of LEEMANPLATE and BSAU 145a o?
A8: In fact, the law stipulates that the license plate manufacturer’s trademark and the British reflective material specifications must be permanently and clearly displayed on the license plate.

Q9: Why do I see Huang Qinqin, the license plate of the car with o outside the street?
A9: Because the material is not high-quality pure acrylic film, the sun's ultraviolet light can easily oxidize it.

Q10: Why don't we use automatic online store?
A10: The reason is that each customer's customized product is different from the ready-made products. We must understand the customer's needs and the feasibility of the customized product, so each order must be reviewed and communicated.

Q11: Did you write this Q&A yourself?
A11: Yes, but I don’t know that all the explanations are copied from my place, so the media should indicate the source when using it with other practitioner companies.

Q12: I just had a car inspection, and the inspector gave me too much room for 1cm between numbers on a traditional license plate. What about a license plate with 2 English characters and 3 numbers?

A12: It is definitely a mistake of the vehicle inspection center - law enforcement does not know the law, and I have dealt with quite a few cases of this kind. Hong Kong law 374E C1B, the law specifies that the custom license plate legislation is not the traditional license plate legislation, because the traditional license plate legislation was drafted in the 1970s and 1980s, and the traditional license plate does not expressly stipulate the distance between numbers. In addition, the ratio of traditional plate spacing indicated by the law is only the above picture. If it is a custom plate, use the law in section C. I hope that all the citizens of Hong Kong can protect their own rights and interests, and they can't hold a feather as an arrow like them. We have dealt with this kind of problem before, and we have also met and complained to the Transport Department, hoping that they can educate the off-duty "vehicle inspectors".
A12: After talking about the last ten years, I still want to continue talking: the traditional license plate laws in the 1970s are different from the custom license plate laws in 2008.
The difference is that Hong Kong law 374E states that traditional license plates have no legal provisions to specify the distance between characters, while custom license plates clearly specify that the distance between characters is strictly regulated from 10mm to 32 mm.
Many law enforcement officers and car inspectors do not know this, which leads to overcorrection in the performance of their duties, self-righteousness, and lack of a clear understanding of the legal requirements. In fact, the Transport Department's brochures clearly indicate that this character spacing requirement is for custom license plates. Except for license plates. This is clearly stated in black and white, but in fact there is nothing indisputable about it.
But today, a customer pointed out that the font distance of his traditional license plate number is not 10mm, and asked the store to make a correction. I pointed out that this is the traditional license plate number. The law does not clearly stipulate the font distance. When this happened, the guest not only did not accept my statement, but also said that what the car inspector said was a rock, I immediately responded: "These guys are Hong Kong pigs, and those in power think it is right when they say what they say. "In fact, the law clearly states that there is no dispute. This situation often occurs, and we will explain it clearly, and recommend customers to complain. The problem of improper vehicle inspection and law enforcement personnel is not a long-term trend. If you have any doubts, ask to speak out the legal provisions immediately. Check the article and the paragraph. You can’t let them talk. According to internal information, they will strive for performance. I pray that they will not be sacrificed. When encountering injustice, you must speak up. ! If you don't want to admit it, you have to stick to it.
