New DVLA number plates 2018 - When do the new UK plates come in? What do they mean?
NEW 2018 number plates will be introduced by the end of the month. Here is a quick and easy guide to when the plates will be introduced what the numbers and letters mean and why they are being introduced.
New DVLA number plates for 2018 are just weeks away from being released.
Number plates have a six month life before new ones are released.
On September 1st 2017 new ’67’ registration number plates were introduced.
These plates indicate the age of a car and refer to vehicle manufacturers between September 2017 and February 2018.
Every six month new plates with an updated date come into circulation.
The new 2018 ’18’ plates that arrive on March 1st will run until the end August 2018, before the ’68’ plates are introduced on September 1st.
Here's a simple guide to what the numbers and characters on number plates refer to.
The first two letters on the number plate are the ‘DVLA memory tag.’
These letters represents the region the vehicle was introduced - the first letter refers to the region while the second the local DVLA offices.
For example the L at the start of a number plate stands for London.
However, where it gets confusing is that multiple letter can signify the same DVLA office.
It is not uncommon, however, for cars with similar letter sequences to be from the same manufacturer.
After these letters there are two numbers on the first half of the plate are the age identifier.
The current numberplate system was introduced in 2001 with the labelling of new cars starting at ’01’ in 2001 followed by ’52’ in the following September.
After 2010, however, the half year mark number was changed from five to six - for example November 2009 got 59 and November 2011 got 61.
Before this point licence plates used a single letter that represented the year it was registered in.
This system began in 1983 with the letter A and ended in August 2001 with ‘Y’.
How close a series of letters or numbers are to a real name of word: if the match quality is high (and the numbers and letters are very convincing in making a popular word), the value of the registration plate will be higher. This means that a match like 5IMON, for the name Simon, will be worth a lot more than a more obscure set of letters and numbers that are not as convincing a match, such as S17 MMM for the name Sam.
The style of the plate: this means establishing if it is a new-style plate, an older-style format or if it is dateless or Irish, for instance. Other options are that it is a prefix-style plate or a suffix-style plate. New-style number plates, which have been produced since 2001, tend to be the least valuable because they are a bit less appealing to some collectors, plus the rule about not having plates that are newer than your car can also come into play, putting people off from buying a newer-style plate for their older car. Prefix-style number plates, which were in production between 1983 and 2001 can be more popular as more vehicles are entitled to have those licence numbers, and they may have fewer characters in total. Suffix-style plates, issued from 1963 to 1983 are relatively rare, which means they can attract higher prices than prefix-style plates and newer designs. Dateless number plates, also known as cherished number plates, were produced between 1903 and 1963 and are nearly always the most valuable number plate configurations; they have fewer digits and their dateless nature means that people can hide the age of their car. Irish number plates are similar to dateless number plates, especially because they don’t have a year identifier. They also tend to be cheaper than other types of vehicle registration plates.
