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

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. To help you find the perfect private number plate and to help explain the number plate formats; we've made a list of the different types of plate formats, and what they actually mean.

Registration Format Format explained Release Years Example
Cherished (Dateless) 1 - 3 characters (regional identifier) followed by 1 - 4 numbers. January 1903 - January 1963
A 1
Cherished (Reversed Dateless) 1 - 4 numbers followed by 1 - 3 characters (regional identifier). January 1903 - January 1963
5 E
Northern Irish (Dateless) 3 characters (always contains an I or Z) followed by 1 - 4 numbers. January 1903 - January 1963
GAZ 9999
Suffix Three characters followed by 1-3 numbers and 1 additional character (age identifier). January 1963 - July 1983
JEN 11E
Prefix One character (age identifier) followed by 1-3 numbers and 3 additional characters. August 1983 - August 2001

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.

Search and buy your dream private number plate now!

Now that you understand the formats of DVLA registrations; you'll probably have a better idea of what your perfect private registration will be, so use the search box at the top of this page to search from over 40,000,000 registration combinations - or alternatively - use some of our private number plate search recommendations from below.
