Registration Numbers and Personalised Plates

Getting the most out of registration numbers with

In order to enjoy a painless introduction to the world of personalised plates, there are a few simple requirements to be taken into account.

Firstly you'll need to be able to search available registration numbers to find the perfect number for you. We have taken care of that by providing a wide range of search options for your use - you'll find a list of searches by clicking the 'Find a number plate' link in the main menu.

Secondly, you'll need to make sure that the registration you have found can be transferred to your vehicle. The most important thing to be aware of is that you may not display a registration plate that would make your vehicle appear younger than it actually is. For example, if your car was originally registered with an 'M' prefix number plate you would not be able to buy and display 'P' prefix plates (or any other letter that came after 'M'); nor would you be able to buy and display any of the current style plates which have the year specified in a number such as '02' or '52'. Any of those would make your car appear younger than it really is. So, in short, you must select either from the range of 'dateless' personalised plates, which have no year identifier, or you must choose from registration numbers that were issued before your vehicle was first registered.

It's actually far simpler than it sounds, but if you're not sure about anything please give us a call on 01582 967777: we'll be happy to answer all your questions.

You also need to know a couple of things about the actual acrylic plastic number plates we supply. We are able to offer a range of approved national flag emblems and border styles, and we offer a choice of flat or 3D-style lettering. However, like all other suppliers, we must comply with the current regulations governing the display of registration numbers. This means we can not supply number plates with altered spacing, or plates bearing any other decoration except the approved national emblems. We also have to use the prescribed regulation font - although, as mentioned above, you may choose either flat or 3D-styles.

We advise all our customers to avoid any supplier offering to provide registration numbers on plates with non-standard fonts or spacing. It is illegal to display such number plates on your vehicle, with penalties including large fines and loss of entitlement to your cherished registration.

Registration numbers can be great fun and a sound investment - we hope the information above helps you to get the most out of yours.
