DVLA Number Plates

  • Have you always wanted a more unique number plate, but don’t want to go for the full blown personalised option?
  • Do you want a number plate and registration mark that is personally significant to you but remains fully legal on UK vehicles?
  • Are you looking for a number plate and registration mark that is issued directly by the DVLA? 

If any of the above apply, then considering our range of DVLA number plates is definitely an option you’re going to want to explore. 


What are DVLA number plates? 

Our DVLA number plates are issued by the DVLA in Swansea That means that these plates are fully legal and legitimate from the outset. These plates are part of the standard yearly issue that arrives with each new vehicle, so they follow the same conventional formatting of number plates that everyone is familiar with.

However, these plates do have a significant difference. The DVLA number plates we sell fall into one of the following two categories:

  • DVLA reg plates that were not issuedas part of the standard bi-annual issue of plates for new vehicles. These plates have never been issued to a particular vehicle. There are two reasons why these plates have not been included as standard issue. The first is a simple case of supply and demand; often, more registration plates are issued than new cars are produced, so there is a surplus of plates that can then be sold on. 
  • Secondly, some plates that the DVLA recognise may be particularly interesting to those looking for more personalised plates that are still compliant with the standard-issue format. The DVLA has recognised that these plates may be desirable and has thus withdrawn them from the general bi-annual run of new plates. Rather than these plates being issued at random to new vehicles, they are withdrawn for separate sale.


These special plates that have been removed from general usage are offered for sale twice a year; usually in December and June. The scheme by which they do this is known as the Sale of Marks. Each of these authentic DVLA registrations are priced according to how desirable they are to consumers. In addition to these new sales, the DVLA also hold auctions six times a year for potentially-popular plates and DVLA private plates that have otherwise gone unsold; these are usually advertised well in advance of the sale. 


Are these plates legal? 

Yes, 100%. When you buy DVLA reg plates, they are legal and completely licensed for use on vehicles in the UK, including Northern Ireland. So if you want a personal touch to your car, you can’t go far wrong with these specialist plates.
