How Does the Northern Irish Registration Format Work?

This type of registration is seen as a cheap and effective way of disguising the age of a vehicle, as it's very difficult for the general public to distinguish the region and year of manufacture (Don't worry, this is still on the V5). Currently, the format is made up using "ABC 1000", where "BC" represents the county or city and "A" indicates it's position in the series. Northern Irish Number Plates such as JAZ 1234 or GJI 23 are issued with three letters first containing at least one I or Z, followed by between one and four numbers. Old Republic of Ireland marks such as ZJ 2889 are rare but may be found from time to time. This range of marks always contain an I or a Z and a number between 1 and 9999.

Common Number Plate Questions

  • 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.
