What Our Customers Say
“1st class service from initial enquiry to completion paperwork. Would have no hesitation in recommending or using again. Never thought purchasing a private plate was as simple or straight forward.” - Stuart on Trustpilot.
“Totally professional throughout, as I hoped they would be. First class communications by email as well as verbally when I rang to check a detail. A good price, followed by so much more, like very well made plates posted in a special padded envelope; and it's that 'getting- it-right' which prompts me to award five stars and recommend them wholeheartedly. Well Done!” - Mr Beattie on Trustpilot.
“Thought when I saw the reviews that it seemed to be too good to be true. Surprise, surprise, Regplates, did exactly what they said they would do. Bought reg number, plates arrived within 3 days, all done in 5 working days. Brilliant, thank you.” - Tony B on Trustpilot.

Personalised Cherished Number Plates
Since their humble beginning in 1903, cherished numbers have continued to increase in popularity often adding the finishing touch to our prized possessions and very often prove to be a valuable investment.
The First Number Plate Ever Issued
A1 assigned in 1903
The Motor Car Act 1903, which came into force on 1 January 1904, required all motor vehicles to be entered on an official vehicle register, and to carry number plates. The Act was passed in order that vehicles could be easily traced in the event of an accident or contravention of the law. Vehicle registration number plates in the UK are rectangular or square in shape, with the exact permitted dimensions of the plate and its lettering set down in law.

Each number plate has 1, 2 or 3 letters and one or more numbers. Number plates are displayed showing available plates on the UK market. For transfer times, VAT status and any other information you require, please call us or visit our main number plate website
