News And Articles

Whether you are looking to buy a private plate, or perhaps sell your current number plate, it is important to keep up to date with current DVLA guidelines. For collectors, keeping an eye on available plates that have caught your eye is also equally important, otherwise you might miss an exceptional buy. For these reasons, we regularly collate the latest news and information on UK number plates.

One obvious area of interest is the value of various number plates. With over 52 million personal number plates currently available in this country, the prices can range enormously from mere hundreds right up to thousands of pounds. As a result, there are now number plates available to suit virtually everybody's price range. Effectively valuing a plate takes considerable knowledge and experience - access to which can be found amongst our selection of articles in this area of the site.

At present, there is no sign of the private plate market declining; in fact its annual sales simply increase year by year. Incredibly, despite recent difficult financial times, it appears that the British public are becoming increasingly fond of these novelty registration numbers and this is an industry that remains particularly exciting to invest as a result of its continually rising sales.
