Number Plate Information
A number plate is only the piece of Perspex or plastic fitted on the front and rear of your car bearing the number of your vehicle. We sell the right to the registration numbers themselves – The right to use a particular number plate.
The next DVLA issue will be for the “13″ number plates, they will be available to purchase from the 4th December 2012 - Any “13″ issue can be transferred to any vehicle registered on or after 1st March 2013.
Although the term number plates is the most common term used for what we sell, it is not actually the correct definition of our main product which are vehicle registrations.
Cherished number plates, personal number plates, private number plates, what is the difference? Technically nothing. The names have been created by the general public to reflect the different orders and quantities of letters & numbers making up a registration. However cherished or personalised number plates are much more expensive as these names are given to highly desirable registrations that are usually snapped up as soon as they become available.
