UK Number Plate spacing rules to be relaxed

Currently plates like these are illegaly spaced where in this example it should be “RAJ 4R”.

However we have heard that these space requirements between each character are being relaxed and after further studies the automatic number plate recognition cameras have no problems in processing misplaced number plates, as long as they are not altered to misrepresent another word or character.

If the rules are relaxed then number plates will become more popular. Customers who have private plates for sale can now display them without any concerns of police enforcement.
