How do I Buy a Private Number Plate?

We know finding and buying the perfect private number plate can seem tricky, so we’ve provided various guides to make the whole process easy and hassle-free!

Check the vehicle's age

As many registration marks carry an 'age identifier' (the date when the mark was released) it is important to check the age of the receiving vehicle. The DVLA does not permit newer registration marks to be transferred to older vehicles - i.e. you can’t make an older car appear newer than it really is - so be sure to pick a plate that suits the vehicle’s age.
Try our Vehicle Age and Plate Checking tool.

The price

As part of your search results, we will present the price of each registration. As well as displaying the price of the registration as per the industry standard, we have a unique toggle function that allows you to see the price including VAT and the government transfer fee so there are no surprises later on when placing your order.

Plate options

You can also order a new set of private number plates with your registration. Use our drop-down options to select the size and shape suitable for your vehicle, and even add a decorative flag to the plate as well if you like.
