Irish Number Plates 

Northern Irish Number Plates are dateless and can be transferred onto any age of vehicle registered in the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. They have become 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. "A good way to impress your neighbours’


Hide the age of your vehicle from a little as £40 plus £8 VAT plus £80 Transfer Fee:


Irish Number Plates are number plates that are issued in Northern Ireland and not Southern Ireland. Northern Ireland forms part of the United Kingdom, where as Southern Ireland is a different country and uses a separate vehicle licensing office.

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


Since July 2014 the DVLA Swansea are responsible for issuing Irish Number Plates, and unlike the DVLA number plates for the GB mainland, there is no way of identifying the age of the vehicle and therefore the registrations are becoming convenient cover plates for 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, BIG, MIG and OIG 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!!)


When you purchase Irish Number Plates, we would request your vehicles documents ie V5C, MOT certificate if applicable. You would then just wait for your new V5C Vehicle Registration Document to drop through your door, and then fix your new number plates onto your vehicle. The DVLA are no longer issuing a completion letter following a transfer, the V5C is the only official document you will receive.


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 30 years of experience you can rely on Speedy Registrations to handle your transfer competently. At Speedy Registrations we have available the largest stock of cheap Irish number plates within the UK. You can choose from 5,000 Irish registrations plates all stored on Motorcycles. As well as supplying the public we also are the main suppliers to other registration companies and coach companies of Irish number plates. Speedy Registrations are the only Northern Number plate dealer to have been awarded the most sought after industry recognised quality standard, BSI. We are registered to ISO 9001:2000, certificate no. A12 456.




The majority of Northern Ireland numbers that have shorter digits for example NXI 1, NFZ 1, DJZ 1 etc are held back from general allocation. Swansea DVLA 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.


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's 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 5847. Likewise if your name if Barry, you would quite often be called BAZ and therefore a perfect number plate for you would be BAZ 2241. Another example would be ELZ 42 by royal appointment exclusively from Speedy Registrations. A more recent combination would be SEZ 1919, which is excellent if your name is Sarah or Sharon.
