‘16’ Series Number Plates

The new ‘16’ number plates were released in December and from March 1st  this year these attractive number plates are able to be allocated to vehicles registered on or after this date. The ‘16’ series is extremely desirable for the reason that it represents the letters ‘iG’, which is a likely combination to appear in both first names and surnames! So, if you’re an Abigale or a Wright, you don’t have to wait long to get your hands on a plate that perfectly spells out your name!

However, the distinctive ‘16’ plates are also able to represent the following combinations of letters too:

  • ‘LG’
  • ‘G’
  • ‘ib ‘
  • ‘Lb’
  • ‘b’
  • ‘ia’
  • ‘a’

Therefore, it’s no surprise that ‘16’ is one of the most appealing series of number plates; it opens up a whole wealth of opportunities for the names and words that you can have on your plates.
