Private Number Plates, DVLA Registrations & Personalised Plates

Over 25 Years Trading

Welcome to The Private Plate Company website. Did you know we are one of the UK’s longest-standing companies in the business of personalised number plates on the net and have been trading for over 25 years? We have sold over 250,000 private number plates in that time and are considered experts in our field. Our team has genuinely sold some of the most expensive private reg numbers ever sold. Whether you are buying or selling a private registration, your enquiry will receive the utmost attention from our experienced team.

No Hidden Extras

The price you see is the price you pay. Unlike some companies, we have no hidden extras to surprise you with once you have made your choice of number plate. Our policy is and will also be a no-nonsense approach to all aspects of our business and so if you are considering purchasing a new private number plate from us, what you see is what you pay.

Buying Private Number Plates

Apart from Unissued Government Stock, we have over 50,000 cheap reg plates for sale. All paperwork is professionally handled by our company or if preferred, can be supplied on a retention certificate if you’re not quite ready to use it.

We strive to be the most competitive car number plate supplier in the UK offering a premier service yet we still allow you to make an offer on almost all our cherished registration plates for sale to get the best deal available. That’s probably why we have sold some of the most desirable personalised registration numbers in the country including B 1 and 2 G as well as thousands of cheap dateless registrations.

We are respected members of the Cherished Numbers Guild which is an organisation set up by other reliable and respected members of the number plate world to make sure that you, our customers, are treated fairly and honestly.

Selling Private Number Plates

If you have a private number plate that you want to sell, we offer a FREE valuation service based on over 20 years of selling similar combinations so you can be assured your registration will be competitively priced and saleable. There is NO charge for advertising either and our website receives thousands of visits each day. We also offer a competitive finance rate to assist customers on a tight budget or looking for dateless number plates and cherished plates in our premier plates section.

All sales and private number plate transfers are made in strict accordance with regulations set out by DVLA registrations and virtually all our transactions are concluded within 14 days with a majority completed within a week. You can order your vehicle registration plate safely and securely online or if you prefer, you can call us on 01639 888833. We don’t bite, and you may find it helpful. We’re even available after hours by email for free help and advice on how to buy a number plate, selling, and the transfer process.
