Irish Number Plates
It is important to note that when we refer to Irish Number Plates we are referring to number plates from Northern Ireland and not Southern Ireland. Southern Irish registrations cannot be transferred, and therefore when we refer to Irish number plates we are in fact meaning Northern Irish number plates.
An increasing number of our customers are realising that making an investment in one of our Irish number plates is worthwhile. Irish number plates can be transferred onto any age of vehicle registered in the GB mainland and Northern Ireland and therefore are becoming a cost effective way of hiding the age of your vehicle. For example if your vehicle is registered on a S676 NFG registration then automatically you would assume your vehicle is ten years old, however if it was registered with SEZ 4141 you would have no idea how old your vehicle is.

Northern Ireland has their own system in Coleraine DVA for registering Irish Number Plates. The system is
unlike the DVLA Swansea system where as there is no way of identifying the age of the vehicle and therefore the registrations are becoming convenient cover plates f
or many of our customers. The prefix of the Irish number plates denotes the area the registration comes from. For example Speedy Registrations is based in Fermanagh where the IL and more recently IG combinations are from. This has lead to many popular combinations for example GIL, HIL, CIL, EIL, MIL and more recently AIG. DIG and BIG all followed by 1, 2, 3, 4 numbers, ie BIG 8085. (Any Al Murray fans might like this plate, BIG BOB, BIG BOB, BIG BOB!!)
Most of the above Irish Registration Plates would be registered on vehicles in Northern Ireland and therefore they would be vehicle-to-vehicle, transfers through Coleraine DVA and onto Newcastle DVLA. As for your Irish Number Plate Transfers, Speedy Registrations is based in Northern Ireland we would request your vehicles documents ie V5C, MOT certificate if applicable. You would then just wait for your new Road Tax Disc to drop through your door, and then fix on your new number plates.
If you are interested in purchasing Irish number plates, and you are still unsure an easy thing to remember is that they will always have an "I" or a "Z" somewhere in the letters combined with 1, 2, 3 or 4 numbers. With 25 years of experience you can rely on Speedy Registrations to handle your transfer competently.

The majority of Northern Ireland numbers that have shorter digits for example RJI 5, BIG 11, ELZ 11 etc are held back from general allocation. Coleraine DVA will then release these numbers in auctions and therefore are more expensive. The DVA (Driver Vehicle Agency) issue these number plates on a Certificate of Entitlement, and therefore must be transferred onto a Northern Irish registered vehicle first. Don't panic if your vehicle is in the GB mainland we would simply request your vehicle documents, ie V5C and MOT certificate (if applicable) and you would just simply sit back, relax and await your new Road Tax disc to come through the post. Alternatively if your vehicle is registered in Northern Ireland, then we can assign an Irish number plate held on certificate straight onto your vehicle.
Why Irish Number plates make good personalised plates?
A lot of Irish number plates are abbreviations of popular Irish Girls names and Irish Boys names. For example a lot of names have 'I' somewhere in their name and 'I' are not issued in the GB mainland prefix / current style number plates.
For example if your name is Jillian, an option for your name would be JIL 3931. Likewise if your name if Barry, you would quite often be called BAZ and therefore a perfect number plate for you would be BAZ 6611. Another example would be ELZ 11 by royal appointment exclusively from Speedy Registrations. A more recent combination would be SEZ 4141, which is excellent if your name is Sarah or Sharon.
