What is a private plate?
In terms of numbers plates, the term private plate covers a multitude of options. Years ago, the more traditional number plate dealers would always refer to a private plate as a cherished plate. This was long before DVLA began releasing prefix marks along with previously un-issued dateless private plates onto the market. Thus a private plate or cherished registration would often be a mark of sentimental value which had been in the family for a long time - hence the term "cherished".
Nowadays, a private plate covers any registration mark chosen by the keeper.
Every vehicle licensed to travel on the road, has to be registered with a registration mark. Lists of these marks are issued to the local Dept. of Transport Offices for appropriate allocation. Apart from the fee payable for first registration, such plates are issued without charge.
However, some drivers prefer to exercise an element of choice. Therefore, they choose a private plate to indicate their name, initials or perhaps reflect an interest in sport etc.
There is a wide range of private plates available to suit all budgets. You will expect to pay the price of the private plate plus the VAT in some cases plus an additional £80 or £105 fee to the Dept. of Transport.
