Personalised Suffix Style Private Number Plates

Private number plates are the ultimate vehicle accessory, and can completely transform the way you feel about your car. If you’re looking to make your time behind the wheel even more special, buying a suffix style personalised number plate is the perfect solution.

Buying suffix style private number plates has never been easier or more accessible. Here’s all you need to know about equipping your vehicle with one.


What Are Suffix Style Private Number Plates?

Suffix registration plates were the first type of plates brought in to have a year identifier contained within their digits. This age signifying letter was placed at the end of the registration, making it much easier for the vehicle to be dated.

This system was implemented in 1963 and ran up until August 1983 where they were replaced with the prefix style. If your vehicle was first registered after 1983 then you will be able to use any suffix plate. However if it was registered between this time frame, you will need to make sure you use only the same or earlier year dates in the plate.

As far as their appearances are concerned, typical suffix number plates follow the format below:

Letter – Letter – Letter – Number (between 1-3 digits) – Letter   

Choosing this type of private number plate is popular for a number of reasons. Firstly, this format offers lots of versatility. You could include spelling out your name and date of birth, such as JON 812T for John Thomson born 8th of December. Alternatively, the number could mark a special age, making it an ideal present for yourself or a loved one.   

On a separate note, knowing that this type of plate went out of fashion 35 years ago means that most cars on the roads don’t use this style. This gives your private suffix number plate an even greater sense of standing out from the crowd.


What Is The Process Involved?

Once you’ve found and ordered a personalised suffix number plate, we’ll need to inform the DVLA of the update. This includes removing the existing number plate, which you may be able to sell on, as well as registering the new one.

After receiving your private number plate, attaching it to the car is a very simple task that anyone can complete in two minutes flat. Following this, all that’s left to do is enjoy your heightened love of the vehicle.
