Number Plates - using Visual tricks and Phonetics to spell out words

Tip

Number plates can read like words. If you pronounce each letter and number deliberately and carefully a hidden word can appear just like magic! Learn how to use visual tricks and phonetics to spell out your name, a word or a phrase on your personal numberplates, by following our guide below.

SWAPPING NUMBERS FOR LETTERS ON PLATES
Numbers and letters often look very similar, so this guide shows you how people swap letters to numbers and vice versa to visually make up the car registrations they really want.
People also use the sounds (Phonetics) of numbers and letters to create a new meaning, as shown below:-

Important Private Number plates and DVLA Information
DVLA is the government agency responsible for all regulatory matters related to the issue and display of private number plates and car registrations in the UK. The DVLA acronym means Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and its head quarters are here in Swansea from where it controls all UK private registration plates. It was formerly called the DVLC standing for Driver and Vehicle Licensing Centre but this title was changed in 1990 and so is now obsolete. In Northern Ireland the government agency responsible for controlling and issuing Irish number plates is DVA this acronym meaning the Driver Vehicle Agency.
DVLA is a registered trade mark of the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency. We contract the agency on a daily basis but VRM Swansea  Plates4less is in no way affiliated to the DVLA or DVLA Personalised Registrations.
 
All personalised number plates and personal registration marks mentioned in this site are either British i.e. issued and controlled by the DVLA Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency  here in Swansea or Northern Irish i.e. issued by the DVA NI (Driver and Vehicle Agency Northern Ireland) in Coleraine. They are only for display on vehicles registered in the UK and Northern Ireland.

Personal Number plates : Follow the law
As responsible personalised number plates agents we feel it is important that our visitors and customers understand the law regarding the supply and display of cherished number plates as they are valuable assets and should be protected. It was once possible to buy cheap number plates from any private car numberplates maker without any evidence of your entitlement to the car registration numbers. These days you need to provide the private registration plates manufacturer with a V948 number plate authorisation certificate which is issued by the DVLA only after your keeper’s entitlement has been checked. Your numberplates are an important identifying feature of your vehicle and can be cloned to provide a false identity to any vehicle for those engaged in vehicle related crime. There are now many stories that tell of speeding fines collected in areas of the UK where car owners have never visited, due to the display of duplicate number plates  by criminals.

The law on the display of vehicle registration numbers is now very strict and personal number plates owners may not use decorative or fancy fonts. Letters and numbers must be of the correct size, style and spacing with private registration plates also conforming to strict British Standards in their materials and manufacture. To break the law on the manufacture and display means you risk having your entitlement to your cherished registration plates permanently withdrawn and face a substantial fine of up to £1000. Incorrectly displayed private plates or personalised reg marks will be enough to make your vehicle fail its MOT test.

 VRM Swansea Plates4less is a DVLA registered number plate supplier (supplier no: 3166) and a recognised reseller of DVLA Personalised registrations. In recognition of this fact we only supply fully road legal number plates. DVLA, Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, DVA NI Driver and Vehicle Agency Northern Ireland, are registered trademarks
