When you get your vehicles registered, normally you wouldn’t be able to choose the registration plate. It’s no fun getting stuck with a number and letter combination you’re not quite fond of especially when you would rather have a plate with digits and letter combinations that are significant to you. If you prefer the latter, then you would be wise to get a personalised DVLA (Plate).

Your vehicle is an extension of your personality. This is why the type of car or vehicle that a person owns is actually a reflection of who the person is. Your individual aesthetic preferences as well as your personality quirks always make their way into the very heart and soul of your vehicle.

Search for Available Number Plates

The letters and digits on the registration plates have a large number of permutations. Some of these combinations will be that one special combination that you would want to get for your own car. If you would like to know if the DVLA Registrations have your perfect plate, then use their super search bar here: http://dvlaregistrations.direct.gov.uk/search/

After clicking ‘search’, the site will return a few results that you can then choose from. You can also click on the ‘prefix search’ or the ‘current search’ tabs to the left of the search bar to make your search more specific.
