The term ‘number plates’ is the commonly used word for what we sell but it is not actually the correct definition of our main product: Vehicle Registration numbers, personalised registrations or private number plates would be more accurate a description.
Number plates are actually the plastic perspex plates fitted to the motor vehicle bearing the registration mark of the vehicle. There are lots of other synonyms used like personalised number plates however the most popular term would now be private number plates, you can see our main menu to find out more about these. It seems that the older generation would use the term cherished number plates but also prefix and dateless number plates. Young drivers generally search for cheap number plates.
The DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) is the government department in the UK responsible for managing vehicle related documents such as driving licences and vehicle registration V5C documents within Great Britain & Northern Ireland (including maintaining a database of licensed drivers and registered vehicles).
In the late 1980’s, the DVLA started selling DVLA registrations opening up a massive database of previously unissued numbers. As well as issuing and selling DVLA number plates, the DVLA administers driving endorsements, penalty points, transfers car registration numbers and organises the collection of vehicle excise duty (also known as road tax, car tax and road fund licence).
