Cloned Car Registrations Are More

Common Than You Think

Whilst you may be under the impression that cloned number plates are a rarity, you couldn’t be

more wrong. In fact, 1 in 12 cars in the UK has cloned car registrations. Learn more about this

illegal practice:

Who is Using Falsified Car Registrations?

According to research there are 37 million vehicles on roads in the UK, and 1 in 12 of these has

cloned registration plates. Well-organised vehicle crime gangs are using false number plates to

avoid detection by the police.

Director of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators, Dr Ken German, has

recently said that the police pick up on thousands of cloned plates every day with their

automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) and CCTV cameras.

The police believe that criminals are using cloned number plates to avoid being caught out

when stealing petrol or to dodge speeding fines and parking tickets, as well as more serious

offences such as burglary.

As a result, the legitimate owners of these number plates are receiving fines they’ve never

incurred or find the police on their doorstep for serious criminal activity they haven’t actually

committed.

How Are These Criminals Getting Away With it?

Whilst it is essential to have the vehicle’s log book (V5), as well as a valid driving licence and

proof of address when purchasing a registration plate, some show plates can be bought on the

internet or over the phone without these documents.

This makes it extremely easy for criminals to generate clone plates therefore it comes as no real

surprise that approximately 1.75 million of the 37 million vehicles of all types in the UK (about

32 million of these are cars) are estimated to be donning cloned registration plates.

How Can You Avoid Buying a Vehicle with a Cloned Number Plate?

According to Dr German, you should do plenty of research before buying a vehicle, particularly

if the seller is private. Carry out identity checks with firms such as HPI to discover if the vehicle

is stolen, has been written off or been clocked.

Dr German advises those in the process of making a purchase to thoroughly study number

plates. He says that if there is no writing on the bottom of the number plate, such as the dealer

or manufacturer’s name, the plate is likely to have come from a suspicious source.
