New Format Numbers

On September 1st 2001, the DVLA put into action a new vehicle numbering scheme. Having used suffixed and prefixed numbers, the radical new system appears complicated. There is method in the madness however and this is the Classic Nouveau guide to how it works.

Unofficial Method!

  • 1. You take the first letter of your 3rd pet's name
  • 2. The last letter of your mother's maiden name
  • 3. Your shoe size divided by the number of wheels on your car
  • 4. Three letters that best describe your personality

Therefore, my new car will have: GN02 YUK. Nice!

Official Method!

  • 1. Two letter Regional Identifier
  • 2. Two figure Age Identifier
  • 3. Space
  • 4. Three random letters

The Regional Identifier has two letters, one for the region in which the vehicle was purchased and the second for the Vehicle Registration Office (VRO) it was registered at.

The Age Identifier has two numbers that change every six months (March and September). The scheme started in 2001 with '01' then '51' to signify being half-way through the first year, then '02', '52', '03', '53', '04', etc.

The second half of the plate then consists of 3 random letters, although there are a few exceptions including any 'I' or 'Q'.

However, these numbers can also be purchased for any vehicle of the right age. Remember, a registration cannot be used to make a vehicle look younger than it is, but just because your car wasn't bought and registered near Shrewsbury, doesn't mean you cannot buy yourself a nice DR01 plate.

If you are interested in a custom designed current-system registration, then call us on 01949 851 000 or email us at: sales@cnreg.com and we shall help you find exactly the right one.

For further information on the new registration system, visit the DVLA website, which includes a list of all the local identifiers and when exactly each age identifier will be issued.
