How to choose the perfect private number plate for your car

Private number plates are the perfect customisation to enhance your car’s appearance and are worth every penny. However, the idea of opting for these plates is to set your vehicle apart. The personalisation process will require clear thinking on your part and knowing what you want.

Only by incorporating such factors will you choose the perfect private number plate for your car.

Tips for choosing the best private number plate for your car

We have compiled a list of tips that you can consider when choosing the correct number plate. Following are the essential elements to keep in mind when making your choice.

1. Budget

Private number plates have premium pricing, so always set a budget when you decide to get one for your car. The best way to do this is to first look at the average pricing available and determine the maximum amount you’re willing to pay. Budgeting will help you have an idea about the format and design options you will get to explore.

2. Letter and number play

You won’t spell out complete words, so rely on letter/number appearances and phonetics to get the desired results.

3. Ensure your choice follows authorised format

The DVLA permits specific formats for vehicle number plates, so ensure whatever you choose matches one of the approved formats. You will not be able to use any number plate that doesn't follow the rules.
