Private Plates for Beginners

A handy guide when you don’t know where to start.

Price

A good starting point would be price.

If you’re looking for a relatively cheap private plate, we would suggest searching for your initials within the Prefix number plates. Remember, you can’t add a reg number to your vehicle if it makes it appear newer than it is. Our Prefix DVLA private plate numbers will filter out the unsuitable ones based on the age of the vehicle.

Our website is designed to give you a number of options, and if you are on a budget, we offer a range of Finance Plans to ensure you’re really happy with the numberplate you choose. At British Car Registrations, we treat our customers in the same way, regardless of how much they’re spending. This is where we price ourselves on excellent customer service and value.

Some of the cheapest private plates are number plates originally issued in Northern Ireland, which start from £59 online. Please see our Bargain Basement next to the search box at the top of the home page.

If you have slightly more to spend, then use our database to search for names, initials, numbers represented as Cherished Plates – usually in a format which has no year indicator.
