Make a Statement with Your Vehicle Registration Plates

All motor vehicles need to have number plates showing the registration number to be fixed on to them. It is the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) that manages and provides vehicle registrations across the UK. The UK also allows personalized DVLA number plates. We at Private Car Numbers can help you find the personalized number and cherished registrations you need.

Number Plates in the UK

Back in 1904, registration plates were made a mandatory requirement for all motor vehicles. It was in 2001 that the current registration number format was introduced. Currently, the first two letters, called the local memory tag, denotes the region. The second section is a two digit year code and last comes a random sequence of three letters that identifies the vehicle.
