The age of your current vehicle can be important

You cannot make your vehicle look newer than it is by putting on a registration that was released later than your vehicle was.

For example, if your vehicle has a 1989 G registration, whether you are looking to put a H on that was released a year later, or a new 2020 plate on, it is not possible because they both make the vehicle look newer. You can put a 1988 F or earlier on, or one of our tens of thousands of dateless registrations as these can go onto any vehicle, regardless of how old or new it is. You can also buy the registration and keep it on a certificate to transfer to an elegible vehicle later. Click the detail button next to the registration you are interested in for more information, or give us a call.

What are Suffix Number Plates?

Suffix Number Plates consist of three letters, followed by one, two or three numbers and a single letter at the end, which is used to identify the age of the vehicle. Suffix plates were issued to new vehicles between February 1963 and July 1983. Suffix Number Plates are also known as Cover Number Plates. Some people who purchase a new vehicle but don't like its current number plate but don't want a personalised registration might opt for a cheap cover number


What are Prefix Number Plates?

Prefix Number Plates were issued to new vehicles between August 1983 and August 2001. They consist of one letter that helps identify the age of the vehicle, followed by one, two or three numbers and then three letters at the end.

For the majority of the suffix and prefix number plates, new releases have been once a year but towards the end of the prefix run, DVLA decided to change to a 6 monthly process so it went from an "Aug to Jul" yearly  to a "Sept to Feb" and "Mar to Aug" which is why the last few releases of the prefix plates went so quickly !
