Current Style Registrations
Current style registrations consist of two letters, a two-figure age identifier, a space and then finally three letters. For example:
Prefix registrations are those which contain the year identifier at the beginning of a registration, They consist of a letter, one to three numbers, a space and then finally three letters.
Suffix registrations are those which contain the year identifier at the end of a registration. They consist of three letters, a space, one to three numbers, and then finally one letter.
Dateless registrations do not contain a year identifier and can consist of a number combination followed by a letter combination and vice versa. There is a space between the number and the group of letters.
Remember if you are buying a private plate to go on your car, the car must be the same age or newer than the registration you are buying. For example a 08 plate registration couldn’t go onto a 07 plate car.
