Cover Plate, Ideal for hiding vehicle age!

Cheap number plates from Northern Ireland which are ideal for hiding the age of your vehicle and offer the private touch too. The main reason that such plates are inexpensive is that they are automatically issued to DVLNI registered Irish cars and therefore their owners have paid nothing for them in the first place.

They are also in good supply and this keeps their prices cheaper. In fact Irish plates are usually the cheapest private dateless plates you can find.The only thing you must realise is that as the prices come down then your choices become more limited and it is unlikely that you’ll find a plate which shows your initials or name. The other thing to remember about Irish plates is that they always contain an I or a Z in the three-letter combination which means they don’t suit everybody. However Irish numberplates can cost from as little as £60 or £70 plus vat and transfer fees. Expect to pay from £185 to £240 for a decent looking cheap number plate, in total. You can click on this link to search our Irish Numberplates stocklist.


If you budget stretches a little further then for around £197 plus vat and transfer fees your choices become enormous! There are literally millions of cheap private plates in the £300 to £500 (all inclusive) price bracket and we’re sure there’s a great plate there for you! Just use the "Find Number Plates" link at the top of this page to get started.
