We love to help people find and buy or sell private number plates the easy way


Personalised number plates, also known as private plates can be purchased and used on DVLA registered vehicles.

Important DVLA rules to consider when displaying Number Plates

  • It is illegal to misrepresent the format of a number plate.
  • You cannot assign a registration mark to a vehicle that makes it appear younger. i.e. If you have a 1998 vehicle with registration mark R189 UED then you can not assign the 2005 registration mark AB05ABC onto it. Registration Suitability Checker
  • Vehicles must have current MOT (if of the necessary age) and Road Tax (or be exempt) to take part in the government transfer scheme.
  • Number Plates always contain a number.

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.
