Prefix Private Registration Plates

Prefix number plates are a popular and eye-catching style of vehicle registration. They were issued between 1983 and 2001, and the prefix indicates the year of registration. The first letter on the plate signifies the year in which the vehicle was registered, followed by a unique combination of numbers and letters. Prefix plates have become highly sought after due to their distinct design and age-related significance. Additionally, they offer personalisation options for drivers looking to add a unique touch to their vehicles.

Current Style Car Registrations

The existing style of number plates is made up of seven characters. It starts with two letters, followed by a two-digit number and ends with three more letters. These registration plates can still be used to spell out words, for example: DE51 RED. This type of new number plate allows for a much larger number of combinations compared to the previous versions that were available before 2001. However, the letters "I" and "Q" are not allowed, but the letter "Z" can appear as part of the last three characters.

region where the car was first registered, the second two characters are numbers and represent the vehicle’s age. Plates are released in two six-month periods each year. Plates released in the first batch take these characters from the year date, for example for 2019 they are one and nine. The second batch takes the date and adds 50, making these numbers six and nine for 2019. The last three characters are random letters.

There are some limitations on the future registration you can select; some characters aren’t used on the current form of UK plates issued. For example, the letters I, Q and Z can’t be employed as the first two characters on a British plate and I and Q can’t be used for the last three letters either. Q is reserved for number plates to denote vehicles with undetermined age or origin by the DVLA. Kit cars and vehicles that have been modified far beyond their original specifications can have a Q registration. Additionally, number plate combinations that resemble a word or phrase which others may potentially find offensive are always excluded by the DVLA and never issued.

Whether you’re looking to buy a future release number plate for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, such as your son or daughter when they’re old enough to get behind the wheel, at New Reg we can help.
