..And probably have to go to a MOT station to get them checked, which could cost you ££

If you fit the black ones it will probably be a £30 fixed penalty, worst case a prohibition (sp) notice and a new mot......
Its not worth the risk.

IIRC "L" reg was the changeover reg, 1st January 1973. They started making the new Yellow/white ones in 1972, "K" reg, but they became compulsory after 1/1/73.
That is correct :L

I remember my Dad having a G reg Cortina which had the yellow/white plates, so they were in circulation before K reg. However, 1973 is the correct year for them being compulsory and as has been correctly stated, cars younger than that are not allowed to have black/silver ones for road use.
