What are Prefix Number Plates?

Prefix number plates are the style of DVLA registration plate that was in use from August 1983 to August 2001. These plates use a letter to identify the age of the car, placing it at the beginning of the registration (the first letter on the left hand side).

This style utilises a date specific letter followed by up to three numbers and ending with three additional letters. When looking for personalised plates, you will need to ensure that none of the letters you use make your vehicle appear newer than it is, so this style cannot be used on cars older than August 1983.
