Tippers is the only remaining manufacturer to use the original equipment and techniques to make truly authentic registration plates for your classic, vintage or veteran vehicle. Established in 1932 we have an unrivaled range to suit all makes and models from 1898-today.
It is this experience and passion for history that means we are the choice of the best restorers in the world.
The DVLA has confirmed in INF104 that all vehicles registered as Historic Vehicles for taxation purpose can now use our classic plates, this is now on a rolling 40 years coming into effect each April 1st. This means we are now allowed to supply black and silver/white plates for vehicles manufactured up to 1979 (T suffix).
We can manufacture plates to most sizes and welcome orders via Email. Please let us know the size you require and registration, then we will reply with a cost which can be paid online.
Our pressed registration plates are individually made by hand, using our cast iron fly presses,
then our enamel paint is baked in our 30 foot long WW11 Camelback Annealing Oven.
This site only shows limited examples of the types and sizes of licence plates that we can manufacture.
As a manufacturer we start with sheet metal, so we can make plates of any size and shape and are only limited by any restrictions dictated by our dies, presses, and that of the law.
However we can also make signs and plaques in the same style for your garage, shed or a housename or number, as long as they are not a possible registration.
If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us to discuss your requirements for any bespoke licence plates
