Everything You Need to Know About the 20 Series Number Plates

20 Number Plate

Why Should I Buy a 20 Plate?

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.

However, all is not lost. If you don't own a vehicle registered from 1st March 2020, you can purchase a 20 registration and keep it on a retention certificate for as long as you wish. This nifty option allows you to assign a number plate to an eligible vehicle with no additional cost, because the assignment fee will have already been paid.

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. If you don't do this, somebody else might snatch up that 20 registration you had your eye on, only to sell it on down the line at a much more inflated cost.

Thousands of Registration Plate Combinations

There are a whole host of new, very popular words and combinations available with the 20 number plate registrations. Lots of names, car and initial combinations are now available so whether you're a Thomas, Abdul, Megan or Brooke, there is a private 20 reg to suit you. Of course, private number plates also make a wonderful gift for a special person in your life and can be a real 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.
