What are Dateless number plates?

Under the Motor Car Act of 1904, Dateless number plates are the first series of vehicle registrations in the UK. They consist of letter codes for the region of issue and unique numbers which serves as the vehicle identify. The city of London UK issued the first ever number, marked as "A1".

Dateless registrations have no year identifier, which means that their number plates does not show the age of a vehicle. As a result, you cannot work out the original issue date, you would therefore need to consult a reference book. However, you can therefore assign and use them with any vehicles in the UK, including modern vehicles too.

Before 1932, the beginning of the order on these registrations is either an "A" or an "*". Plus, one or two letters to represent the issuing region. The digits however range from '1' to '9999' and are in sequential order. In 1932, this changed to three letters, from 'AAA' to 'YYY', a space, then, a sequence of digits from 1-999.

Nonetheless, as the years pass, and the demand for vehicles on UK roads continued to grow. Then in 1963, the DVLA issued the Suffix style format as a way of producing more registrations. Subsequently the Dateless series then ceased, but they remain a cherished classic on UK roads today.

Are dateless registrations a good investment?

In the past, buying personalised registration plates was a sign of wealth. Nowadays, they are more affordable and come in a wide range of prices. However, a dateless number plate is still rare and exclusive, which is why they cost more. In fact, the top most expensive marks in the UK are all dateless.

So, investing in these registration marks could be a profitable decision since they tend to increase in value over time. Their uniqueness has made them even more popular; some people even buy them to hide the age of their cars. A Dateless registration is a must to give your car a polished appearance.
