If your vehicle was first registered between March 2008 and September 2008 you will find that its original registration number would have been part of the 08-release. This was a series of registrations containing the numbers “08” (e.g. XX08 XXX). The numbers act as a year identifier, giving you an accurate read of the vehicles age.
Just because you have a 08 vehicle doesn’t mean you have to have a 08 registration though. You can still personalise your car with a private number plate as you can we any other age of vehicle. Your only restriction is you cannot make your vehicle appear newer, so if your vehicle is originally a 08 you cannot have anything newer than that.
Similarly if your vehicle is newer than the 08 release you can use a 08 number plate on your vehicle. 08 can be used in place of letters OB, for example, which may become useful if you are looking to personalise a number plate with your name or initials for example.
We have an extensive list of 08 registrations available below for you to browse.
To transfer an 08 registration to your vehicle, the vehicle must be registered on or after the 1st March 2008.
