Current Style Registrations

Current/New Style Registrations are the most recent types of Number Plates. They were first introduced in 2001.


Private Number Plates

Private Number Plates are a sure fast way to get you noticed. Like domain names, private number plates and unissued government stock (otherwise known as personalised DVLA registrations) are a perfect way to personalise something that can otherwise be considered rather boring.

The registration numbers your car has when you first buy it might not be very exciting at all, but if you invest in private number plates a whole host of options are open to you. Cherished plates allow you to pick from your initials or name (examples could be: DM 3 for Dave Moss, 81 LLY for Billy, LOU 153A for Louise Adams or SCO 7S for Scott).

Private number plates are also ideal for company vehicles and can certainly assist in your advertising. If your company name is Croston Saunas for example you have a choice of CR05 TON and S4 UNA.

Types of Private Number Plates Available in the UK

Number plates and DVLA registrations come in many variations of format and style, and can either show or hide the age of your vehicle, as well as the location of which it was registered.

Private number plates to hide the age of a vehicle

As you can see from the examples above, it's possible to hide the age of your vehicle with a private registration from New Reg. There's a few ways to do it too - for instance you could put an older plate on a younger car, or you could simply use a dateless or Northern irish plate instead.

Note: Whilst you can always make a younger car look older with current registration style, it is an offence to make an older car look younger using the current registration style.
