What is a Lamborghini style Hex plate?
A hex plate is short for a hexagonal plate. These plates are given this name due to their elongated hexagonal (six-sided) shape, as opposed to the traditional rectangular-styled number plates. The ‘Lamborghini style’ refers to the make of car that popularised this plate style, Lamborghini.
Do I need a Hex Plate?
Hex plates are purely an optional style to apply to your number plate, they only serve an aesthetic purpose, whilst still retaining the durability and intended function of a standard shape number plate.
Will hex plates pass an MOT?
A hex plate has as much of a possibility of failing an MOT as a standard number plate. A plate will fail an MOT if it is not securely attached, presents a hazard or if the characters on the plates do not meet the specification in terms of spacing, colour etc.
Are there laws to having Hex plates?

Gel Plates – The basics
You are able to choose a 3D or 4D option in conjunction with the hex plate. Below, we will share an in-depth explanation of our gel plate options.
A ‘gel plate’ refers to a registration plate with slightly exaggerated characters that differ from a standard registration plate. Gel plates can come in the form of 3D or 4D plates.
For those looking to add character, impact and a sleek appearance to their car, 3D & 4D plates have seen a surge in popularity. Their popularity is not only because of their unique and bespoke look but also their increased durability.
3D plates are made from acrylic with individual raised letters. The raised letters are manufactured from polyurethane and get ‘stuck’ to the acrylic plate by hand. An aligner bar is used to guarantee perfect spacing.
The rounded and shiny gel-like appearance of 3D plates makes them a great choice if you want to add understated personalisation to your vehicle.
4D plates are also made from acrylic, but instead of polyurethane characters, they use professionally laser-cut characters made from acrylic sheets. This allows the characters to be thicker and more rectangular for a more eye-catching look.
The 3D and 4D plates we offer are available in several styles. It’s important to note that with all these different styles, the only change is the texture and appearance of the characters.
