True Cherished Numberplates are those that carry no year identifier. All registrations issued after 1963 can be pinned down to a date of issue. Normally you simply look at the single prefix/suffix letter at front or end of the reg, or with the new style look at the number, and this informs you in which year the registration was originally released. For standard issue reg, this also gives away the age of the vehicle it’s on.
Cherished registration numbers, on the other hand, have no distinguishing letters or numbers that can inform you of their original release dates. Because of that when you assign one of these to a car, bike, or other roadworthy vehicle, you’re camouflaging the age of your vehicle. If your vehicle is brand new, you can add to its appeal with the addition of a custom cherished registration. If your vehicle is quite old you can disguise its age by adding a cherished numberplate. And if you’ve got a true classic car that’s pre-1963 itself then the perfect finishing touch is a custom cherished numberplate of this type – with nice black and silver plates, of course!
Irish reg can also be considered as dateless as they carry no year identifier, but don’t themselves date back to prior to 1963. They’re being issued all the time, which makes for a lower price point as they’re not as rare. They can, however, be just as sought after if you pick up the right combination of letters/numbers.
If this is your first venture into buying a cherished numberplate then we would like to put your mind at ease. The whole ethos behind our business is customer satisfaction and that’s why we have gone to the trouble and expense of becoming registered to BSI Quality Mark. For this reason, we are not allowed to make up our testimonials, as we have to account to British Standards for their authenticity. We are inspected annually by a BSI inspector and you can be assured that we will put the same care into carrying out your transfer as for all our other thousands of satisfied customers over the last quarter of a century.
