Number plates - A growing fascination

S88 GRT on Audi carThere was a time when people assumed that only wealthy businessmen or celebrities owned personalised number plates. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. There are literally millions of cheap number plates available to buy, and more people than ever are personalising their otherwise unremarkable cars with a little bit of individuality on a plate.

With prices starting from as little as £49, there's no need to spend a fortune on expensive plates, when you can quite easily represent your initials or birthday on an inexpensive car registration. There are plenty of cheap DVLA registrations and Irish number plates available for exceptionally low prices. Initials can be displayed on reg plates from just £189. Birthdays and dates can also be conveyed on car registrations. For example, if you were born in September 1988 and your initials are GRT, you could purchase S88 GRT for just £189.

In fact, there are lots of two-letter number-ones available through the search box in the top-left of this website. Why not search for your initials?

Don't forget - not all cherished number plates are immediately recognisable to somebody else. Displaying your birthday and initials may not be instantly obvious to anybody else, but you can rest safe in the knowledge that you have purchased a numberplate that conveys you perfectly. Incidentally, many people don't want their numberplates to be immediately recognisable as personalised number plates, as some people regard them as rather 'snobbish'. In this situation, a set of Irish plates or DVLA regs would be absolutely ideal.

Why not try our search box? You're sure to find a set of numberplates that suit your name, initials, hobby or profession. Remember - you don't need to be a wealthy celebrity to own a private registration.
