Prefix number plates are one of the most recognisable and impacting styles of vehicle registrations. Introduced in '83, prefix number plates start with a letter representing the year of the registration.
Suffix style registration plates, introduced in 1963, contain 3 letters, 2/3 numbers and a last letter to indicate the year the vehicle was registered, starting from "A" being 1963, "B" being 1964, and so on.
If you'd like a suffix registration, simply use our suffix plate builder for instant results that come with an unbeatable price tag.
Current/New Style Registrations are the most recent types of Number Plates. They were first introduced in 2001.
If you’re looking for private car registration plates, then you’re in the right place. New Reg offers a highly comprehensive range of car registration plates for sale.
When it comes to purchasing car registration plates in the UK, we can supply all sorts of combinations. We offer dateless, prefix and suffix plates, as well as the current “new style” plates, and you may well be pleasantly surprised at how affordable a private registration can be.
Our website’s search function is really easy to use – simply type in the combination of letters and numbers you’re looking for and you will be given a list of available registrations that match your search, along with prices.
You may already have a firm idea of what you’re looking for, or perhaps you just want something unique to you. For the former, the search function will display an array of suitable options. If the latter applies, why not try searching for your initials, occupation, or hobby, or a word or name that is significant to you - or the recipient of the plate if you’re planning to give it as a present?
A personalised car registration makes a great gift, putting a smile on the face of the recipient every time they see or step into their car - particularly if you pick one of the more light-hearted options, such as KI55, BO55 or MUM, for example. You could also opt for something that matches the make or model of your vehicle.
Other than as gifts, car registrations are also seen as something of an investment by many buyers. If this describes you, then perhaps you’d like to take a look at our “investment number plates” area at the bottom of this page. You can also browse our “number plate gift ideas” sections if you’re looking for a little inspiration, or look at the “hot number plate searches” at the bottom of this page.
