Learn More About Personalised Number Plates


The term ‘number plates’ is the most common word or term used for what we buy and sell however, it is not actually the correct definition of our main product or service. These days personalised number plates would maybe a more accurate description.

Number plates are actually the plastic perspex or acrylic plates fitted to the motor vehicle bearing the registration mark or identification number of the vehicle. There are lots of other synonyms used, 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. You can find and buy prefix, suffix and dateless number plates that are truly personalised on this website.

Learn More About DVLA 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 UK Government started selling DVLA number plates opening up a massive database of previously unissued registration numbers. As well as issuing and selling DVLA registrations, 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).
