  • How does the current registration style work?

    Current Style Prefix Number Plates were introduced by the DVLA in September 2001 as a way of making it easier to understand vehicle history. This current Style still contains the year of manufacture however it is now displayed as a number e.g. 06 for 2006 (56 for September releases). Another new addition is a 'region identifier' which is now indicated by two letters at the beginning of the reg (for a full break down please click here). The random aspect (some would say the fun bit!) of this current style is, as always the final three letters. Good examples of quality current style registrations owned by New Reg are DE51 RES, PR05 PER and HU55 LED plus many more of course!

  • What are the current legal requirements?

    Number plates must be made from reflective material. The front plate must have black characters on a white background, while the back must have black characters on a yellow background. No background patterns are allowed.

    Motorcycle and Motor-Tricycle riders only have to equip a number plate on the back of their vehicle.

  • What are the current legal measurements?

    Characters on a number plate must also be a certain height and size, with particular spacing:
    Standard Shape: Each plate measures 524mm x 112mm. Please note that these plates can display a maximum of 7 digits.
    Standard 4x4 Rear: Standard 4x4 Rear 285mm x 203mm supplied with Standard front plate 524mm x 112mm.
    Large Rear: Large Rear (Jaguar/Porsche etc.) 533mm x 152mm with Standard front plate 524mm x 112mm.

  • What type of changes are illegal?

    The positioning and spacing of the number plate must not change to ensure the plate is road-legal and can be read correctly. Also, when creating a custom reg you cannot make the date of the car (the third and fourth characters) appear newer than it is.

  • How can I customise my private registration?

    Besides the layout of letters and digits there are a few other ways you can personalise you reg:
    Characters: With the license plate's characters you have a few options such as making the characters 3D.
    Border: Choose from options such as dashed, dotted and solid to place a border around your reg
    Flag: Pick from a variety of flags such as the Union Jack or St George's Cross, then choose your tag such as ENG, England, SCO, SCOTLAND, WALES, UK and more.
