Cheap number plates come in various combinations and are usually what we call ‘dateless’ number plates. They are a combination of letters and numbers that do not really match the drivers initials (some containing obscure letters like I, U, X, Y and Z) and do not mean anything to the driver/owner. The Land Rover vehicle image at the top of this page is a prime example of a cheap dateless number plate using initials XBG. Often they are used to remove the age identifier so therefore are sometimes called ‘cover’ registrations. Less common initials are usually much cheaper than those sets of initials which are shared by many. (example UHY, compared to AMS).

There are many styles or combinations of cheap number plates, there are basic 3x3’s like 3 letters and 3 numbers, 2 letters 4 number combinations or 3 letters + 4 numbers (which are of Northern Irish origin and those containing letters I and Z).
