How many types of vehicle registration are there?
Registration numbers, personalised plates, DVLA number plates and private number plates are a few terms used for our products... But do you know the difference?
Current Style Number Plates
Current style number plates and car registrations consist of two letters, a two-figure age identifier and finally three letters. Good examples of quality current-style personalise registrations are DE51 RES, PR05 PER and HU55 LED plus many more of course! The current registration mark format was first introduced by the DVLA in 2001.
Prefix Number Plates
Prefix personalised number plates and car registrations contain the year identifier at the beginning of the personalised registration. A quality selection of cherished prefix registrations includes R4 NDY, S73 VEN and R4 CHS - great registrations, we think you'll agree! Prefix registrations were first introduced by the DVLA in 1983.
Suffix Number Plates
Suffix DVLA Number plates contain the year identifier at the end of the vehicle registration. These number plates were issued by the DVLA to vehicles manufactured between 1963 and 1982. Good examples of these types of vehicle registrations are EXC 173D, BLO 550M and JEN 11E.
Dateless Cherished Plates
Dateless car registrations or Cherished Number Plates do not contain a year identifier and can consist of a number combination followed by a letter combination and vice versa. Some of these registrations such as JON 321 and Y 1 are seen as the creme de la creme within the number plate industry.
Northern Ireland Number Plates
Irish Number plates contain no year identifier and always incorporate an I, Z and up to 4 numbers. Irish number plates were first issued in 1903 under the original british system of identifiers. Great examples of Irish number plates are BJZ 66 and IT 1.
