The Significance of 10

November, 4 2009

Number Plate News

We all know that 10 is an important number. Gordon Brown lives at 10 Downing Street, 10 was the number of violin sonatas composed by Ludwig van Beethoven, and when playing many games, 10 is the most desirable number to have attained – think about ten-pin bowling; and Blackjack, where the Ten is worth 10 points.

And the number 10 is important for number plate registrations, with a new sequence of 10 and 60 number plates being released for 2010.

There has been some confusion over what will happen to number plate formats in 2010, but the new sequence is easily explained. From 2010, numbering includes the year identifier 10 (for vehicles registered in March), or 60 (September), with the second digit increasing by 1 for each year.

The pattern for the next five years is as follows:

  • 2010: 10 and 60 (NE10 NUM and NE60 NUM)
  • 2011: 11 and 61 (NE11 NUM and NE61 NUM)
  • 2012: 12 and 62 (NE12 NUM and NE62 NUM)
  • 2013: 13 and 63 (NE13 NUM and NE63 NUM)
  • 2014: 14 and 64 (NE14 NUM and NE64 NUM)

Your vehicle must have been registered on or after 2010 to use the 10 and 60 plates. However you can buy a registration now to conveniently transfer to a vehicle at a later date.

There are so many possibilities for new combinations with the 10 series – especially for number plate names. Take a look at these terrific 10 number plate combinations:

MR10 DGE – Mr Lodge MS10 REN – Lauren
