    So I am attaching a licence plate to the car so don’t need a massive screw. What would be the best dimension self tapping screw and type to attach the plate to the car? Thanks for your help.

    Use a security headed screw, will stop criminals pinching the plates from you car to clone it,

    I mention it as last month an aquantance got several parking fines from a town he has never been to.

    Just use the adhesive pads designed for the job. No need to put screws through body work then.
