I Don't Like My Irish Registration Plate - Can I Change it?

Yes you can change your Irish Registration providing the vehicle is registered in mainland UK. The Private Plate Company offer a scheme whereby we can change your existing Irish registration number to a UK registration for you. The cost of this service is just £80.00.

It can't be easier. You simply post the vehicle documents to us with a cheque for £80.00 payable to The Private Plate Company Ltd and leave the rest to us. We will take care of all the nasty paperwork. The vehicle will be given an age-related number plate in approximately 14 days, so that it will appear as a UK car and not one from Northern Ireland. Age -related means that if the car was registered for example, on 3rd March 2003, the your new replacement registration will look something like XP03 RTC. If your vehicle was first registered, for example, on 12th August 1997, then your replacement number plate will appear similar to R785 HRX.
