Private number plates are growing in popularity all the time. Every week thousands of people just like you are using our website to search for their dream registration mark which can make their car, van or motorcycle truly personalised.

 

Important rules to consider when buying Private Number Plates.

 - It is illegal to miss represent the display 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 TAX (or be exempt) to take part in the government transfer scheme.

 

- Number Plates always contain a number.

There are many reasons why a set of private plates are appealing. Some of these reasons are more obvious than others. Traditionally the most popular reason for choosing a private registration was to show the initials or name of the vehicle’s owner and you can make a quick three letter search for these by using our ‘wide search’ facility. Whilst most of the obvious private names eg P3 TER or K4 TYS have been snapped up long ago and can command prices well into the tens of thousands of pounds, there are still many choices of plate which look great, do the job and most importantly won't break the bank!

 

Another reason that people chose a particular private reg plate is the investment aspect. It’s true that you may find several great looking plates on our sales database which are appealing and personal to you. How do you make up your mind which one to choose? All you need do is give us a quick call on our local rate telephone number 01792 477316 and our experienced advisors will be happy to help you understand which one will increase in value the fastest, and tell you why. We offer this private advisory service free of charge but please remember we shall be basing our advice on past sales and this can only be treated as a rough guide to what may happen in the future.
