Truck Drivers Love to Personalise their Ride!

Show plates for heavy goods vehicles

HGV drivers often face long shifts when at work and most of this is spending their time in their HGV (heavy goods vehicle) whether it’s driving to another side of the country of sleeping over at a designated stop. It can become ‘home’ like when you spend long hours at the same place, so it’s no wonder why HGV drivers like to place their name on show plates to fix onto their trucks. Let’s take the popular name Chris as an example. On a show plate, Chris would write his name as the main text, and add necessary extras to suit his requirements.

Getting custom is what show plates on HGV’s is all about. Due to these not being number plates, there is no restriction to what a truck driver can add onto his show plates. Number plates are what the truck already has on, which is for legal reasons in terms of identification purposes, however, show plates are what truckers attach onto a suitable place, such as inside the cabin, or inside the windscreen.  They are not placed near the vehicles legal number plate area as this is required by many countries to be displayed clearly and not obstructed in any way. 

A show plates are a bespoke number plates which can have text written on it. For example, if the Hulk (an animated angry character) is driving an HGV, he could have something like ‘DON’T GET ME ANGRY!’ on his customised show plates. However, it is very unlikely you would see a green animated character driving a HGV on public roads, but that’s one of the examples. 

Show plate don’t just have to be created for HGV’s, you can design your very own customised show plates for your home or agricultural vehicles (off road tractors, quads etc). Or whatever suitable off road reason you may need them for.  For information regarding show plates, please like and follow Angel Plates on Facebook & Twitter.
