Find & Search Number Plates easily with CarReg
A car number plate is the piece of perspex (plastic) fitted on the front and rear of a vehicle bearing the registration number of the vehicle. We sell the actual registration numbers themselves – or strictly speaking the rights to display a registration number on a vehicle.
Although “number plates” is the most commonly used term for what we sell, it is not actually the correct definition of our main product which is “vehicle registrations”.
Cherished, personal or private number plates, what is the difference? Technically nothing. The names have been created by the general public to reflect the different orders and quantities of letters and numbers making up a registration. However cherished or personalised plates are often more expensive as these names are given to highly desirable registrations that are usually snapped-up as soon as they become available.
Of course, we also understand that some people just want to buy a cheap number plate. CarReg have access to many cheap number plates.

Private number plates or private plates
These are previously issued car registrations. When referring to private plates we tend to refer to dateless registration numbers, sometimes called “cherished registrations”.
Dateless and cherished registrations have historically made very good financial investments.
