It must have. But I can't get my head around it. In London, you could more or less tell when someone's bought an Irish car as the number plate / license plate looks custom but not like it's a vanity plate; but looks like a UK car on the outside with right hand drive; but I've never been inside one or thought about their dashboard before. These cars I see with Canadian plates in Canada... American made cars through out the eras... They all got kph too from the factory? I've never thought about this before, but, again, they must do, right? I know Japanese cars are rhd / kph because of watching YouTube; I've seen American registered cars in London too many times to count; including a convey once with NY plates in South Norwood that looked like somebody's personal security in some BMWs or Mercedes(es)... but never a Canadian one; I once saw a Far Eastern license plate on my road in Thornton Heath and it was just a regular looking hatchback and the people at the car were Asian, I forget where exactly that car was registered but I don't think it was Japan, could have been Hong Kong, however, me telling that is also like me saying In central London where all the embassies are, that's different, see a plate with Arabic on parked outside a compound sort of deal. But when you import a car into the UK, do you get given a number plate or do you have to pick one yourself?
