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.

region where the car was first registered, the second two characters are numbers and represent the vehicle’s age. Plates are released in two six-month periods each year. Plates released in the first batch take these characters from the year date, for example for 2019 they are one and nine. The second batch takes the date and adds 50, making these numbers six and nine for 2019. The last three characters are random letters.
There are some limitations on the future registration you can select; some characters aren’t used on the current form of UK plates issued. For example, the letters I, Q and Z can’t be employed as the first two characters on a British plate and I and Q can’t be used for the last three letters either. Q is reserved for number plates to denote vehicles with undetermined age or origin by the DVLA. Kit cars and vehicles that have been modified far beyond their original specifications can have a Q registration. Additionally, number plate combinations that resemble a word or phrase which others may potentially find offensive are always excluded by the DVLA and never issued.

There are two number plate series releases every year from the DVLA. The new registration series follow the new registration format, being two characters, the year, and three more characters. The first two characters are the regional identifiers, and the last 3 are random. The first release of the year's two digits are the year itself, for example 2017 would be 17. The second release of the year is the year plus 50, for example: 2017's 2nd number plate series release would be 17 + 50 (67).
