Private Number Plates

The term Private Number Plates is probably the most widely used phrase to describe all styles of cherished or personalised number plates. 40 years ago, you may have classed as snob if your car displayed anything quite so fancy as private number plates were generally only regarded as items purchased by the rich and famous.

Celebrities back in the sixties were renowned for having fancy number plates on their cars. Famously, people like Max Bygraves had the registration number MB 1 on a Rolls Royce throughout the 1960's and 70's. Paul Daniels, who needs no introduction, managed to acquire MAG 1C after it had been issued as a replacement number plate in another transfer. Stirling Moss, the famous racing, has owned the number plate SM 7 for over 40 years.

That small exclusive piece of plastic on the back and front of your car may be something that's overlooked by many motorists, but to some, it's the most important part of the car, and to many, its more valuable than the car itself.

Private Number plates have grown in popularity and value over the last decades and with the introduction of the select registration series by the DVLA making it much more affordable, there are now less snobs and many more private number plate enthusiasts on our roads. We have over 35 million car registrations available for sale on our site that be purchased securely online or over the phone.
