What is a dateless number plate?
A dateless number plate is what it says on the tin – it carries no immediately obvious year letter identifier.
Of course, if you arm yourself with the appropriate reference information, an enthusiast can place the year of issue to within months. For example, the dateless number plate RM 16 was originally issued to a 1924 motor-cycle. However, the general driving population would not realise this and so, if you assigned such a dateless number plate to your vehicle, it would not only look fantastic but also disguise the year of manufacture. Of course, the dateless number plates released via DVLA Auctions do the same job (e.g. 36 GJ, 66 HR, 32 TR) but carry no history with them as they have never been on vehicles before. Both these types of dateless number plates are often very expensive but remember we offer finance on most plates and these are well worth investing in (see article Number Plates for investment).
Another type of dateless number plate is known in the industry as a “cover” plate. A typical example would be something like 783 UXT, priced at around £550. This dateless number plate covers up the year of manufacture and smartens up your vehicle for a very economical price – obviously, the mark has no relevance to your initials or name, but you can’t have everything.
