Registration plates have changed many times over the years since the UK vehicle registration system began in 1903 and it was not until the late 50's and early 60's that the idea of having a transferrable personal registration plate on your car, was born.
The first sequence of registration plates began with one letter and one number eg A1 closely followed by numbers up to 999. Then these were reversed and more letters were added up to a maximum of three letters and three numbers eg ABC 123 or 123 ABC. These cherished personal reg plates are dateless as they were not intended to have any relation to the age of the vehicle they were assigned to. There are many of these still in existence and for sale today but they are not the most popular choice of our customers as they command prices well into many thousands of pounds.
