If you take a look at the private numberplates search options (just use the "Find Number Plates" link at the top of this page) the way they work are as follows:-

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.

Northern Ireland format registrations are commonly known as 'Irish' registrations prior to the separation of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Any reference to 'Irish' registrations on this page relate to registration marks now known as 'Northern Ireland format' registrations.
