Finding The Right Personalised Number Plate For You

There are many types of car registration plate on offer if you are looking to purchase a private plate for your car. Most registration numbers include a location and year identifier for when and where the mark was first registered (but note that you must not purchase a number plate that dupes people into thinking your car is newer than it is).

Current/new style plates

Current style number plates (also referred to as new style registrations) were first brought in September 2001. They contain a year identifier as a number, for example: 02 means the car was registered in March 2002, and 52 means the car was registered in September 2002.

Prefix plates

Prefix style number plates were introduced in 1983 and stopped in 2001, being replaced by the current/new style reg numbers. This style of plate contains a letter to indicate the year the car was registered, which is the first letter found on the registration. For example, A = August 1983 and B = August 1984.

Suffix plates

Suffix style number plates were introduced in 1963, before being replaced by prefix style plates. Suffix registrations include a letter to indicate the year was registered, and this could be found at the end of the registration. For example, A = August 1963 and B = August 1964.

Dateless plates

Dateless number plates do exactly what's said on the tin: they are ageless. This means they do not have a year identifier and they can be applied to any vehicle, regardless of it's registration date. Due to this, this type of number plate is the most sought-after, but they are also the most rare type of registration to buy - this often means they can be expensive.
