Number plate search guide
What is the Smart Search?
If you’re searching for a specific word, our Smart Search System will work out how to transform it into a legal registration, so you don’t have to do that yourself. Just search the name or word you’d like the plate to resemble! PETER, for example, will get you better results than searching for P3T3R.
How do you use the Smart Search?
To start, simply type in what you want your registration number to resemble, such as your name. Our Smart Search will generate results tailored to your preferences.
If you would like to search for something more specific, simply click on the Advanced Options tab which will allow you to filter the search results by plate style, plate status, budget etc. This is a great option if you have something particular in mind you would like to purchase.
This is the fun part! Because our search tool is entirely free, you can search for anything you like to find a plate that suits you.
To get started, why not go through the list below, search for your answer, and see if you like any of the options available?
- What’s your name?
- What’s your surname?
- What are your initials?
- What’s your favourite hobby?
- What kind of pet do you have?
- When is your birthday?
- What’s your car model?
- Is there a memorable number from a movie/show that you like?
- Do you have any lucky numbers?
- What are your partner’s initials?
You can put your answers into our Smart Search to find a good private plate for you! Try combining answers for more ideas. People often get plates with both their own initials and their partner’s initials - known as partner plates!
And remember! You can use our Vehicle Age Check dropdown on your results page to grey out plates which are too new for your vehicle.
