Dealer selling illegal number plates fined £40,000!

A dealer in number plates who had failed to register with DVLA as required by law, and who had used trade marks on the plates without authority of the owners, was fined £40,000 and had to pay more than £25,000 costs in Aylesbury Crown Court in December. 

In addition £600,000 was confiscated under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Reports say that Steven John Clark had sold more than 175,000 illegal plates over a 3-year period through internet site No 1 Showplates.  Members of the public found with such plates would have been required to purchase ‘legal’ plates to avoid prosecution.
