Private Car Registrations

Private car registrations are the simplest and often the cheapest way to make your present motor vehicle and your next one personal -because you can keep your private registration plates and transfer them across to your next car in most cases. The thing to remember is that you can’t make any vehicle look younger that it actually is, by putting a personal plate on it that has an age identifier which is younger than the vehicle itself.

You can check the rules for number plate transfers by clicking on this link and following the simple instructions

Bargain Number PlatesThe Cover Plate Hotlist


In the UK, the vast majority of private or personalised car registration plates start with a letter followed by a number from 1 to 999 and then the plate finishes with a three letter combination. You can search these combinations by using the wide search on the left of this page and this is a very useful starting point even though these letters will come at the end of your new plates. This is because apart from the three letters making a word of their own or indeed your initials, they can also form the end of a longer word or name which you may be trying to make on your personal numberplates.

Although shorter personal registration plates such as ABC 123 are the most sought after relatively few customers think that they are worth the extra expense as they do costs thousands of pounds. The other reason why the vast majority of customers choose Prefix, Current Style or Irish plates is that they give even more ways to make the plates of their dreams.

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.
