    Thanks for using Jotform!

    We appreciate your detailed question. I checked your form and confirmed the image was indeed not showing up. Upon inspecting, it appears the image you used as a background for the Registration Number field is being loaded from a non https page like so:

    #input_14 {

       background-image: url('http://www.sellyour-car.co.uk/uploads/6/5/5/6/65567227/8307542_orig.png')



    To fix this, please use an image that is hosted from an https page. For your reference, the form loads the image properly when using a non-https version of your form. Here they are shown side by side:


    Hope that helped! Don't hesitate to get back to us if you have further questions.
