Default Registration plate position

Is there any preference which side a number plate can be mounted on a bike if not in the centre?
obviously the plate would have to be luminated.
i'm inclined to put it on the left (cos of leaning into roundabouts) but i am sure i read somewhere it should be on the right if not central.
Any MOT experts or legal gurus help??
thanks guys.

Has to be the rear of the rear axel and can be postitioned anywhere left right middle as long as it is plainly visible from within a 18sqm square laid out on the ground with two of its corners laid on the vehicles centre axis.

Sounds like you know what you are talking about mate but do you agree it must be visible like a 45degree angle from a line straight through the centre rear of the bike, and for a certain distance away.

So that the fucking speed....sorry safety cameras can still see us?

If wrong you are liable to a fixed penalty notice from the police of 30

For the purpose of checking the diamond shape is laid out at ground level not cash cow/safety camera. My personal preferance is a right hand mounted plate mounted as tightly to the centreline as possible. Ive not come across the 45 degree thing so that is a new one but as long as its visible from rear is all I have come accross, and I havent had any problems with it either.




For some reason a right hand plate fitted closely to the rim isnt to clear at cashcow level cant imagine why its perfectly legal as long as its visible from the rear at ground level.
