New Format FAQS
New Format Questions
Why is the first number to be issued the number 51?
The new AGE IDENTIFIERS will coincide with the two annual releases and the year of issue. The 'September' issue will be the higher range of numbers above 50 and the 'March' issue will be the lower range commencing with 02.
Can I pre-order one of the new registrations?
You cannot pre-order registration marks, however just like in previous systems you may complete a request at www.newreg.com in anticipation of a release.
What is the significance of the first two letters in the new registration system?
The new format is the type of registration mark that has been issued to new vehicles since September 2001. It consists of two letters, followed by two numbers that help identify the age of the vehicle.
What type of marks will be withheld?
This is a difficult question to answer, as there are no pre-defined reserves at this time. It would be likely that marks such a PB51 PAB will be reserved as the first two initials match the first and last initial of the last three letters. Other reserved combinations may contain AA51 NGH (Singh), DR51 PAB (Doctor), MR51 PAB (Mister) and fun type elements such as OK51 PAB (Okay) and OO02 OOO.
How will the new marks be priced?
It is likely that the new registrations shall be priced similar to the previous system. Market research indicates that certain combinations will be far more desirable however, New Reg believe that the old prefix system marks will continue to be sought after and the volume of sales will probably increase.
