How much is the fine for having a dirty licence plate?


Police are cracking down on drivers who have dirty or obstructed number plates on their cars.

Number plates are important, as they let the owner and the police know when and where the vehicle is registered.


Drivers with dirty licence plates or ones that are hard to read may face a fine of up to £1,000.

The fine is to act as a deterrent and a reminder to drivers in the UK to check their licence plates on a regular basis.
