Frames for Standard NZ Plates

To fit plate size 360 x 125mm. See also our fun frames at the bottom of this page and our winged frames for more options to fit standard NZ plates.

Message and Lifestyle Plates

There are no frames made to fit 360 x 155mm plates but we have cut three standard frames to make pieces for a pair that will fit.

NZ Slimline Plates

There are no frames made for the 360 x 100mm plates or the 440 x 112mm plates. However, because the 360 x 100mm plates are the same length as standard plates you can cut down standard frames to fit them.

# Hashtag plate Frames

The Hashtag plates are 440mm x 112mm which is like a shorter version of the European plates. The only solution we are aware of is to cut an 80mm section out of the center of European surrounds.

W80 Winged frames for Standard NZ Plates

To fit plate size 360 x 125mm.

These frames cover a 500mm long space similar to European plates. Our winged frames are a fully legal alternative to personalised European sized plates.  On used import vehicles from Europe, South Africa and Singapore, winged plates are a great way to cover where the original European plates were and the holes from the screws that held them to the vehicle. 

Not all cars have the space for this size frame however, and sometimes it will only fit on one end of the car, so we sell them individually rather than in pairs. There is also the shorter W60 winged frames which are 460mm long.

W60 Winged frames for Standard NZ Plates

To fit plate size 360 x 125mm. These frames have 60mm wings rather than the 80mm wings so the overall frame length is 460mm. They are a full legal decorative option for standard size licence plates.

NZ licence plate laws

All New Zealand licence plates must be issued by Waka Kotahi (NZTA) and have the silver fern in the white reflective background. Number plates must be attached securely to the vehicle without any rotation. 


All letters and numbers must be clearly visible all the time. This means, however that any licence plate frame that does not obscure the letters and numbers is completely legal, and at Autographics, we stock NZ number plate frames in a variety of sizes.

NZ licence number plate sizes

A standard size New Zealand number plate is 360mm x 125mm.  Standard personalised plates are the same size and trailer plates are this standard size too.  

The old black and silver number plates were in inches rather than millimeters and are a little smaller than the new metric standard plates but our frames will still fit.  We recommend putting a few layers of tape over the edge of the plate to make a tight fit for the frame.  This will avoid it rattling. 

The Message, Lifestyle, Japanese, Kiwi Colour, Chic, Camo, Team and Heritage plates are 360 x 155mm, slightly taller than standard.  You can make frames to fit from three standard frames. 

The Slim Plates are also the same length as standard plates but at 360 x 100mm, they are not as tall .  You can cut down a standard frame to fit.

Country Flag and Hashtag Plates are 440 x 112mm and no frames are made that size.

European size plates are 520 x 112mm and we have frames and holders for them.

NZ Motorcycle plates are 260 x 100mm and we have frames for this size.
