DVLA Releases New Personalised Number Plates
Thousands of number plates have been released by the DVLA this week, including many dateless plates with popular name abbreviations such as BAZ, DAZ, FAZ and GAZ.
Regardless of how old your car is, fitting number plates without an age identifier adds a stylish, personal touch. And you don’t have to be rich to join the exclusive club of drivers with personalised number plates. Most of the newly released dateless plates are available for under £1,000.
Of course, you can spend as much as you like on a personalised registration number. People associated with football clubs often spend a fortune to get the right plates. Sir Doug Ellis, the late Aston Villa chairman splashed out on the plate ‘AV 1’ which probably cost more than each of the Rolls-Royce cars he displayed it on. The club’s former manager, John Gregory, sold his private ‘V1LLA’ plate for £39,000.
What’s in a Name? Quite a Lot!
While the latest batch of number plates released by the DVLA includes some of the most popular three-letter nicknames, along with three numbers, the first letter of your name could mean a big difference in what you pay for your personalised plates. BAZ, DAZ, FAZ, GAZ, MAZ, NAZ, TAZ, VAZ, WAZ and YAZ range in price from £399 to £999.
In the mid-price range, you might opt for CAZ at £799. You never know – it might give you exemption from paying the fee for entering the Clean Air Zones that are coming into effect across the country! But probably not.
