House, Town & City Number Plates

Number Plates for where you live

Over the years we recognise that people personalise their car in many ways.  One of those ways is to include something to do with the area they live or where they call home.
This can be done in a number of ways on a number plate, from something simple by including your House Number, Digits/Letters from an area Post Code, but also more boldly by spelling the name of your City, Town or Village.  Not only that the UK is home to many non-British drivers from all over the world, Australia, the US, the UAE, Europe, Africa, Asia so some may wish to show their origin on a private plate.

Below some of the more popular number plates which have sold at auction between 1989 and current date.  Why not try and Make your own plate
