How to Buy a Private Number Plate on Finance

We understand that sometimes it’s convenient to spread the cost as some number plates can be expensive to buy in one lump sum. This is why many people decide to buy a number plate on finance instead by paying a set figure each month, just like you would with a phone contract, to make it more affordable.

As a result, you’ll be pleased to know that purchasing a private number plate on finance is a straight-forward process here at Click4reg. By paying for a private number plate over the course of a longer period of month means you can obtain your private registration number almost instantly, whilst paying a realistic monthly sum that you can afford. This means that the cheap private plate you’ve had your eye on can be fitted onto your car sooner than you may have imagined!


How does getting your private plate on finance work?

- Find your preferred private plate via our number plate search

- Select the plate and check that the plate is suitable for your car

- Review the payment options available

- Select the payment option that is best for you (12, 24, 36 or 48 months)


After this, the page you visit will depend on the private plate you choose. If your preferred plate is in high demand, you will be shown the following:

- Click the “Show Interest” button to begin the process

- Enter your details and we will contact you as soon as possible with further information about the plate

- If the plate is still available, you will be asked to provide details to check whether your application will be accepted

If your plate is readily available, you will be shown an option to “Purchase Monthly”. The steps for this are as follows:

- Click the “Purchase Monthly” button to start your application

- You will be taken to a purchase page where you will fill out information such as:

How you’d like to own the registration

Whether you require a front plate, rear plate or both

Your name and address

Nominee details

After this, your private plate on finance application will be processed online and you will be given an instant decision via electronic signature – no need to wait for documents to be sent back and forth by post.


Things to consider before buying a private plate on finance

Like with any expensive purchase, it is important to think carefully before going ahead. If a private plate is out of your budget, don’t stretch yourself to make the payment. Simply wait until your finances are in order. The main reasoning behind this is that if you take out a finance option to spread the cost of your private plate, it will end up costing more money in the long run due to accumulating interest. Therefore, if you have enough money to cover the number plate cost in full, this is highly advisable as it can be significantly cheaper.
