The UK covers England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland – unfortunately, there is still not a comprehensive UK system of vehicle registration. However, this very fact has given rise to a varied cheap plates UK market. If you consider the choice customers have at the present time in cheap plates UK nationwide, it has never been better. Years ago, the cheapest marks available came from N. Ireland.
From Enniskillen came the ‘IL’ series:- BIL, DIL, EIL, FIL, GIL, HIL etc. It is easy to see the attraction of such combinations. Similarly, Belfast issued ‘AZ’ numbers e.g.: BAZ, CAZ, DAZ, FAZ, GAZ etc. Apart from a smattering of suffix marks spelling names, Cheap plates UK emanated mainly from N.I.
Then came the “wilderness years” in N.I., in other words, the “PNZ’s” the “OAZ’s” and the “YIL’s” – not particularly attractive. However, the Cheap plates UK market was rescued by the release of attractive series of prefix plates, hitherto un-issued, for example A prefix plus numbers 1-20 followed by three letters. Subsequently, all the un-issued range of prefix marks (except for “F” prefix which is still to come) have, year by year, added to the Cheap plates UK market.
We pride ourselves in trying to achieve a very well run business. To this end we decided that we would try to achieve an award that is recognised by industry throughout Europe. We prepared to try and gain the quality award BSI 9001 2000. National Numbers managed to do this at its first attempt. The Chairman, Eric Craggs, had previously worked as a manager at ICI for 30 years and had been involved in trying to get businesses within ICI to get this award. We have had the award for six years. For the last two years, BSI has required us to conduct a formal customer survey – we are the only company within the DVLA number plate business to do so. Please look at our Testimonials to see what they think. You may think that a lot of web sites just make up their feedback, a lot do, but we are actually audited by a British Standard Quality Expert to verify that our customer comments are genuine.
