Dateless number plates

One of the most popular reasons for buying a private number plate is to hide the age of a car. While the rules don’t allow you to change the date code on a plate to make a car look younger, it is fine to swap the old plate for one that doesn’t have a date identifier at all!

Buying number plates as an investment

Private number plates can be a great investment. Take a look at our celebrity customer interviews and testimonials. Many of the people who buy personal registrations from us are top business people and entrepreneurs. These are the kind of people who don't make a habit of wasting their money: they are the owners of companies and football teams; faces you'll know from TV's Dragons' Den.

During the period of uncertainty that began with the 2007/2008 financial crisis, private number plates have defied expectation and held or increased their value. For an unnecessary, luxury item that can be very expensive indeed, that is an extraordinary achievement.

Future releases

New registration releases happen twice a year. New release time is a great opportunity to buy a registration that is being issued for the first time. Some new releases are great for making words and names on number plates. When the '11' plates were released in 2011, the number resembled two letter Ls, enabling people to make words and names containing double L, such as POll ARD (Pollard) and COll EGE.

If you are interested in a registration that is due to be issued in the future, you can register your interest with Regtransfers. We will contact you near the release date with details of how you can order your number plate. We can greatly improve your chances of securing the number you want.
