Obtaining Number Plates in the UK

License plates are the primary identifiers of any car that is registered. It is required by law enforcement and insurance companies that unique  number plates are visible on every vehicle. Many people don’t think too much about it; the numbers are presented on their car and listed on important documents and forms. You can simply take whatever numbers the dealer assigns when you purchase the car, but it is also possible to select your own numbers or obtain a custom plate if you wish to.

In the United Kingdom, car plates have a number prefix and a series of letters afterward, similar to the double number and letter combinations used in the United States. It is also possible to get a plate with letters only or with just numbers. Whether you select a number and letter combination, or a mix of both, there are millions of combinations. Some companies keep a database of the combinations available for purchase, and allow customers to search the catalog of plate numbers at no cost.

Some people take their plate registrations very seriously. Once you browse lists of numbers or enter a search term that will yield similar plate numbers, you can see the plate as it would appear on the vehicle and buy it from the site. Online purchasing is available for registered numbers.

Online purchasing makes the process of ordering license plates easy, but you can also call a sales number if it is available. A company may also hold auctions in which registrations can actually be bid on in person, by phone, or via the Internet. There are many places that sell car registration plates. It is relatively inexpensive to buy a personalized registration, but if it is a popular name you want on your plate, you could end up spending much more.
