Explore the new range of 18 plates & discover how to buy

The much anticipated 18-Series is being released November 2017 and it is a rare opportunity for you to pick up a very special number plate. There will be close to 8,000,000 new registrations added to circulation, with many names and words becoming available to buy for the very first time. You can already place an order with Plate Master for your chosen 18-Series registration.

Our proven track record means we are your best option for picking up your ideal registration. We have been buying from new releases since 1983’s A-Series, and we have used that experience to develop a fool-proof method of buying the best registrations quickly on release day.

At the previous release we fulfilled 98% of the orders made by private customers. While other companies and individuals struggled to even access their desired plates we were buying. That sort of success rate speaks for itself.

The law of transferring private number plates to vehicles means that the new 18 series of registrations can be assigned only to vehicles registered on or after 1st March 2018. However, even if you will not be in possession of a new enough vehicle, you can still purchase a DVLA 18 plate and keep it on a certificate (of entitlement) for an indefinite period. Further, this purchase option suggests that the DLVA 18 series plates can be bought as an investment. Our best advice on this thought is to choose your investment registration wisely. Do your research well in advance. Understand the market and gain the advantage over other investors. Then, all you need do is rely on us to complete the initiative and secure your ‘18’ series reg. The DVLA 18 series is one of the last attractive ranges that remain. As with the 17 series, the selection of permutations will be extensive. The number 18 can represent the following combination(s) of letters:-

'IB',   'LB',   'I',   'L',   and   'B'

The standard vehicle registration plate font demonstrates that “IB” and “LB” geometrically reflect the number “18”. This will spawn a widespread range of striking versions of names and words. The ‘18’ reg plates release will make accessible thousands of distinguishing number plates. See some striking examples here

Be warned that the DVLA’s website has a habit of halting (or crashing) during the first hour of a release. During this period, only a lucky few manage to get through and secure a registration, rendering it a lottery. You may find yourself simply not being able to progress past the first page of their website. Meanwhile, your cherished 18 plate could be secured by a lucky member of the public or a number plate dealer. Don’t risk losing out. If you choose to go alone, your chances of securing a 18 registration number are slim. We can help you but do keep in mind that we operate on a first come, first served basis. Discover how to buy a 18 series number plate through us. Using our specialised technology, we have a high probability of securing any 18 registration. However, you would receive a full and immediate refund, if the improbable were to happen and we fail to secure your registration. This is stated in our standard agreement. Please contact us if you have any questions.
