Private reg; buy private registration plates



What is a private reg?

If you look up "private" in the dictionary, you find definitions like "confidential", "secret" - not much help there since, usually, the last thing an owner of a private reg wants is to keep it a secret.

Further investigation turns up terms like "private school", "private hospital" etc. This is more helpful since it indicates the idea of choosing a service (in this case, a private reg) over and above that available from the government in the ordinary way.

A private reg is issued by the DVLA but it is not among the "ordinary" marks issued by the various licensing areas. The owner of such a private reg has paid extra to exercise choice, whether it be for particular initials, a name, a make of car, a funny plate, a reg connected with a sport or a business etc. etc.
