Number Plates Gallery

I am loving our number plates gallery! Have you seen it lately? Well, let me tell you a bit about it.

The gallery is a collection of cars with personalised number plates. These are photos that have been collected over the years or have been sent in by customers and number plate spotters. A huge thanks goes to Noel Woodall and Brian Heaton who have allowed to reproduce images from their books so that you can see the historical photos and really see the plate 'through the ages'.

So for example you can see the registration CRA 1G on four different cars.

You can also search on car make, so if you just want to see Ferraris, you can. Or you can filter the pictures by category such as business, celebrity or no 1 plates. Or if you are looking for a particular registration, maybe one that you have bought or sold, you can search for that too.

And it's not just UK registrations we are looking for. There is also an international category with photos from countries such as France, Poland and Hong Kong.

And if you your photo isn't there, why not send it in for inclusion? We are hoping that this will be the biggest and best collection of great cars and number plates on the web, so it would be great if you could be part of it.

So why not take a look for yourself - number plates gallery.

Flags Finally Allowed on UK Number Plates

It's taken eight years but at last it is legal for drivers to have flags on their number plates. In 2001, it was only the Euro flag that you could legally display however drivers were also told that the national flags would be legal and the legislation would be altered within a month. For some reason, it wasn't. So for the last eight years, anyone with a national flag had illegal plates. Although authorities had been asked to take a 'relaxed attitude' to these, it didn't stop the police stopping and fining drivers.

Now finally, we are officially allowed to display the Cross of St George, the Scottish Saltire, the Welsh Dragon and the British Union Flag on our number plates. However, anyone who has a national flag on their plates will find that they are still required to display a “GB” sticker when heading to Europe.
