Some more useful information

Car Number Plates follow three main formats. The first is the suffix format (three letters, a number and a final suffix letter), the second is the prefix format (a single letter, a number, three letters) and the third is the new style format which came into use in the UK in 2001 (two letters, a two digit number, three letters).

Besides these three number plate formats, UK vehicle owners can also use the dateless format, which was active on vehicles prior to 1963. These plates have no year identifying letters or numbers and can be assigned to any vehicle - regardless of their age. Because they carry so much history, and are often very difficult to source, they can command high prices. Conversely they are also great investments and consistantly rise in value.

Northern Ireland has its own unique number plate registration system, governed by the DVLNI. Number plates here look similar to dateless plates found on the mainland, but always contain an I or Z in their letter combinations. UK car owners can also take advantage of these distinctive plates as transfers of Irish reg onto cars in England, Scotland or Wales are permitted. They make a great, and cost effective, way of hiding the age of your car and giving it a personalised touch.
