What are the red car registration plates for?

I mainly see this on motorways either on the dashboard or at the rear of a car. Why is it there even when the car has it’s own orginal registration plates?

    It to show that the car is out on a test drive by a prospective buyer.

    If you take a car from a show room for a testdrive you will have one of these put on a car.

    They mean that the car is unregistered. Normally garages and dealers use them when they are test driving or delivering vehicles to customers.

    These are called ‘trade plates’. They are for the motor industry workers who have to take vehicles out on the road as part of their work. So people who deliver new cars will have them as will some mechanics who have to take cars out in order to diagnose problems.

    Trade plates. The plate (And its number) belong to a garage or person…not the car. that’s what they are often just clipped on with a tie-wrap. Once delivered, the plates come off.
    You will often see a car delivery driver trying to get back home, thumbing a lift and holding out his trade plates.

    They are Trade Plates for the motor trade. red on white (stop on site) are limited local use only. White on red (go ahead) can be used anywhere, they are mainly used by motor vehicle delivery firms.

    I have really learned some new things via your blog site. One other thing I’d really like to say is the fact that newer personal computer operating systems usually allow additional memory to be utilized, but they likewise demand more memory space simply to function. If one’s computer can’t handle much more memory plus the newest computer software requires that memory increase, it can be the time to shop for a new Computer. Thanks
