  • How does the prefix registration system work?

    Prefix Number Plates are combinations with the year identifier at the beginning of the combination and examples may be as follows: C21 JON or D45 SAM or E465 ANN. Combinations within this category always have three letters and may be preceded by the number range 21 to 999 plus the prefix indicators excluding I, O, Q, U and Z. The number range 1 to 20 on the A to H prefix were withheld for select issue. On the newer prefix range from J onward the following numbers are withheld for select issue and may be bought subject to availability: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 2022 30 33 40 44 50 55 60 66 70 77 80 88 90 99 100 111 200 222 300 333 400 444 500 555 600 666 700 777 800 888 900 999.

  • 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.
