Cherished Number Plates

Number plates which are loved and sought after are called “cherished” number plates (this is the official terminology applied by DVLA). Many customers choose to buy cherished number plates to represent their occupation, hobby, favourite football team, an abbreviation of their name or even the name of their business. They are widely regarded as great investments and, anecdotally, there are very many people who have had years of enjoyment out of their personalised registration and then, subsequently, gone on to sell at a considerable profit.

Dateless Private Number Plates

Dateless car registrations are a fantastic way to give an older vehicle a little dignity in its older years. A Dateless number plate does not contain the year identifier in the form of a prefix, suffix or numerical code which is contained in the current vehicle registration format.
