Prefix number plates are one of the most recognisable and impacting styles of vehicle registrations. Introduced in '83, prefix number plates start with a letter representing the year of the registration.
Suffix style registration plates, introduced in 1963, contain 3 letters, 2/3 numbers and a last letter to indicate the year the vehicle was registered, starting from "A" being 1963, "B" being 1964, and so on.

Current/New Style Registrations are the most recent types of Number Plates. They were first introduced in 2001.
Your vehicle’s number plate is important for identification, but it can mean so much more than just a seemingly random sequence of letters and numbers. Personalised number plates offer the opportunity to make a statement and to make your motorcycle, car or van stand out from the crowd.
DVLA personalised number plates are produced according to set criteria that identify the area in which the vehicle was registered and its age. They also include a series of letters that are unique to each registration. The system used includes various combinations of letters and numbers which sometimes spell out names or words. You can also find sequences to match your initials.
Whatever you’re looking for, you can buy personalised number plates of all sorts here at New Reg. Some plates cost large sums of money, while others can be very modestly priced indeed. The fact that personalised plates can be a great investment - as well as making superb gifts - makes them even more popular.
"The format of the current, or “new style”, plates was designed by the DVLA to make each vehicle’s history more clear. They begin with two letters that denote the region of origin, followed by two numbers to state the age. After the space there are three random letters, which exist so that each car has its own unique identifier.
Prefix number plates are highly popular among those investing in personalised registrations. The sequence starts with one letter relating to the vehicle’s age. There are then up to three numbers followed by a space, then three letters, which once again ensures a unique combination.
Suffix number plates preceded prefix plates, and the letter denoting the year is placed at the end rather than the start of the sequence. They were introduced in 1963 in an effort to increase the number of combinations on offer. Due to limited availability, these tend to be among the most expensive type of personalised plate.
Dateless registrations go back further still and are among the most desirable type of personalised plate. They can display numbers or letters first; the latter is sometimes referred to as a “reversed dateless” number plate.
DVLNI plates are Northern Irish number plates. They are prized because they can be used to disguise the true age of a vehicle. Usually there are three letters, which represent the area, followed by a sequence of up to four numbers.
