    Steve I can’t understand why you are looking for the correct font for “L” reg motors, if you are going to edit the first “L” to make it look more like a “V” then it will be illegal anyway. Why not just use a block font such as ariel or helvetica.

    its illegal alright so why do the DVLC make an absolute mint of of it all its as two faced as it gets!! 😥 (:) (:)
