Guide to Buying Private Number Plates

By: Adam Croft

By now you will have realised the potential of owning your own private number plate, but how do you go about buying one?

First of all, you must decide what you want your number plate to represent. By far the most popular inspiration for private number plates are names and initials. The DVLA have issued thousands of number plates containing names and initials, and a simple search on a number plates-related site, such as Numberplates.com is likely to throw up hundreds of combinations.

However, many people look for something a little quirkier, and that's where the specialised searches come in. Take Numberplates.com, for example, which contains a section dedicated to specialised searches. There are specific gift searches, naughty numbers, fun registrations and even a whole section dedicated to jobs and interests. Are you a plumber with a penchant for cross-stitching? Not a problem - there'll always be a private number plate that's relevant to you.

If you decide you want someone else to do all the legwork for you, you can call a reputable dealer, such as Regtransfers.co.uk, who have large dedicated sales teams who will take note of your details and interests and find the ultimate personalised number plate for you. Prices for personalised number plates start from ?69, so they're often not as expensive as you'd first think!

Once you've chosen your ultimate private number plate, Regtransfers.co.uk take care of everything else - they'll deal with all the messy paperwork and DVLA documentation, and ensure that you receive your brand new private number plates within days. Without the help of a specialised dealer and transfer service, you'll have to deal with the transfer yourself, which involves reams of paperwork and trips back-and-forth from the DVLA offices. With over twenty-five years experience in transferring registration numbers, it's best to let the experts handle it!

When you've got your private number plate in your hands and fixed to your car, why not join in the fun with other personalised number plate owners and enthusiasts? Numberplates.com is the UK's largest private number plates club and offers an interactive service for discussing the world of personalised plates with like-minded people. There's also a wealth of information and services at your fingertips, and what's more, it's entirely free!
