Thinking of buying a Private Number Plate? Here’s what you really need to know

Most people are unaware of Transfer Rules Age Restrictions, and we understand that other websites can sometimes be unclear about the legal transfer rules (or not even mention them), so that’s why Plates4Less have developed a new tool that can check whether the private registration number plate you want, is suitable for the intended vehicle!

Most people are unaware of age restrictions, and we understand that other websites can sometimes be unclear about the rules (or not even mention them), so that’s why Plates4Less have developed a new tool that can check whether the private number plate you want is suitable for the intended vehicle!

We have also created a handy guide for you, which explains how to use the tool, and why UK number plates carry age identifiers. To use it you will first need to know the registration mark currently on the vehicle and our tool works by selecting the date your vehicle was first registered from a drop-down menu, then showing you which registrations are suitable by displaying a green tick or a red cross.

Our tool is built into many pages of our website page - making it easy to check that a registration is suitable for your vehicle, without losing the registration that you want to order. You can find our tool by clicking on the Check Your Vehicle Age button.
