Most go with Jap import size, 12 x 6 inch. But anything other than the standard number size plate is deemed illegal in the eyes of the police. 

Just depends how fussy your local plod are.

DVLA regulations somewhere online. From memory I think the letters have to be the standard size and font and there is a minimum distance between the letters and the edge of the plate. Standard plates have a lot of white space. Search for shortened plate on ebay and you should find a road legal one. I got 6 digit shortened ones for my personal reg although I usually use an illegal show one on the front which has been mis-spaced and cut shorter :lol: no problems from the boys in blue yet and had it on around 20 months apart from the MOTs
