Nationla Numbers customers have the opportunity to own never-before-seen private number plates through the R prefix number plate release in April.
Previously unavailable R prefix number plates will hit the market for the very first time next month and Nationla Numbers is already taking orders.
The extended range will open almost 150,000 news options to customers unable to find themselves a registration or looking to add to their collection.
The extended range will be officially released on Wednesday 15th April 2015.
R Prefix Number Plates
R prefix number plates were originally made available for vehicles registered in August 1997.
Only a limited number of these registrations were originally released.
A prefix-style registration plate includes a year indicating letter (in this case “R”), followed by up to three numbers, a space, and a combination of three letters.
The original range saw the numbers 1-20, and thereafter any multiple of ten (e.g. 30, 300) and any repeated numbers (e.g. 33, 333).
The extended range will allow the numbers 21-31 (excluding 22 and 30, which would have already been issued), 121, 321 and 123.
Combinations can include any letter excluding I, Q and Z. This means there are 12,167 possible combinations available.
Along with the 11 new number combinations this means there will be up to 146,004 new R prefix number plates on the market.
Find Your Perfect Reg
The R prefix number plate release gives customers to chance to own a registration that they may not have been able to find previously.
Currently there are no number plates with “SUE”, “ANN”, “ROB”, or other names available except through private owners.
Customers are now able to get their hands on one for a lot cheaper than other registrations available.
Similarly a lot of popular initials, such as PJW, have also ran out over time as other drivers had bought them already, but customers will now have a second chance to pick one up themselves.
Stock is limited and subject to availability. Some registrations may have already been issued due to special circumstances or have already been auctioned off by DVLA.
