Number plates have become one of the most popular car accessories these days. With a growing number of people opting for personalised number plates for various reasons, these number plates are on the top of the list for people wanting to personalise their car. Number plates are available from as little as a few hundred pounds. So how are the number plates priced?
A number plate dealer will always look at the age and rarity of the number plate before putting a price tag on it. Older number plates are generally priced higher. Moreover, the number of registrations released in a particular series directly affects the value of each of the number plates in that series. An example of this would be that if prefix A had 20 registrations under it, while prefix M had about a thousand, any number plate with prefix A will generally be a lot more expensive than that from prefix M.
The most valuable registrations however are the ones that do not feature a date and have a single digit and a letter. Dateless registrations with letters followed by numbers are also more expensive than the registrations where the letter follows the number.
Thus time and age play a very important part in deciding the price of a number plate.
