Which are the cheapest personal plates?

At Regtransfers we have always believed that we have something for everyone, even those working with a tight budget. We have a great range of inexpensive numbers and a range of finance options to help make your perfect personal plates affordable.

Cheap dateless plates

The lowest priced numbers are registrations from Northern Ireland. These Irish plates may also be fitted to cars in England, Scotland and Wales and are very popular with people who wish to hide the age of their cars, as they don't have an obvious year letter. We have a useful breakdown of how dateless number plates are composed.

Why are Irish numbers so cheap?

Registrations from Northern Ireland are mostly popular amongst people who want to conceal their vehicle's age. As these numbers are always being issued they are plentiful. Also, as most purchasers aren't particularly fussy about which letters and numbers are included, there is not so much competition for specific registrations. These factors help to keep prices down.
