Welcome, we’ve designed our website to
give you the best possible variety of ways to
find the number plate which is truly personal
to you. There are many types of plate to choose
from, those issued on the UK Mainland by DVLA (formerly DVLC) Swansea, and those
issued by the DVLNI from Northern Ireland. Our online stocklists hold
approximately 27 million unique registrations
so it’s worth taking the time to explain
to you how to find a plate which suits you in
terms of both style and budget.
The Wide Number Plates search is designed to let you perform a quick search
for your plate by typing in three letters. These
could be your initials or a three letter word.
The important thing to remember is that the DVLA
doesn’t issue registration marks containing
the letter I or the letter Q, so you can’t
enter these letters. If you then click on the
search button and wait a few moments your numberplate results
will be shown together with the price of acquiring
the rights to display the plates on your vehicle.
The green ‘More Info’ button is very
important as it allows you to see the different
number plate transfer options together with the
vat and government transfer fees.You can even create a picture of your perfect plate on a wide choice of cars.
We always offer discounts if you can pay by
cheque or bank debit card as opposed to your credit
cards and so we show you how much you can save
by paying in these different ways. The More Info
button also lets you see if there is any transfer
restriction applied to the plates you have chosen.
Most of the cheaper number plates have a letter
or number called an age indicator so it’s
important that you don’t order a plate which
is younger than the vehicle you wish to put it
on as this transfer would not be allowed. You
can still buy your dream plate for transfer at
a later date, if that’s what you’d
like to do. You don’t even need a car or
other vehicle right now as we can supply the rights
to the registration mark on a DVLA certificate
for you to use later on.
The other two types of searches lead to the same
information but let you be more specific in choosing
the letters and numbers that you like.
We also have many other ways to search the stock
including Irish number plates, just
click here to visit these pages.
We have an additional 10 million plates in our
offline stocklists so don’t despair if you
can’t quite find what your heart desires.
You can click
this link and e-mail your dream plates to
us or alternatively call us on 01792 477316 to
speak with one of our experienced customer advisors
during office hours, who’ll be more than
happy to help you find your new number plates.

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 privateregistration 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 numbersis now very strict and personal number platesowners 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.
