Why Should I Buy a 20 Plate in 2019?

Alarm bells might start ringing when you find out that the DVLA allow you to make your car look older with a private registration, but not newer, (more of that here). This means that if you purchase a 20 number plate, you are not able to put it on a vehicle unless that vehicle is registered to the UK on or after 1st March 2020... Which is the future.

Great Scott! It's the future!

However, you can give Doc Brown a ring and cancel the DeLorean pickup, as all is not lost. If you won't be purchasing a vehicle to be registered from 1st March 2020, you can purchase a 20 registration on release and keep it on certificate for as long as you wish. This nifty option also allows you to assign a number plate to an eligible vehicle with no additional cost, because the assignment fee will have already been paid.

Now, it can be tempting to bide your time rather than jump in feet first on the initial private number plate release. However, it's always the best idea to get in there quickly to ensure that your desired plate doesn't get snatched away from you, only for the price to be hiked up in months or years to come. Or even worse, kept out of your hands forever.

You can also secure a 20 reg plate and keep it on certificate as an investment, and with the ever-increasing interest in this series, that could well be an excellent shout. This makes having a certificate ideal as allows you to sell your private plate in the future, turning a tidy profit in the process.

Thousands of Registration Plate Combinations

There are a whole host of new, very popular words and combinations available with the 20 number plate release. Lots of names, car and initial combinations are becoming available so whether you're a Thomas, Abdul, Megan or Brooke, there will be a private reg to suit you. Of course, private number plates also make a wonderful gift for a special person in your life, and with Christmas rearing it's snowy-covered head it's a perfect time to buy a new number plate as a real treat for somebody close to you.

Variations range from the musical to sporty, love themed, military-based or Game of Thrones-inspired, or even a classically popular first name, initial or surname, just get in touch to check plate availability.
