Everything you need to know about the 24 series number plate release

Today, we’ll run through everything you need to know about the upcoming reg release. From road-legal number plate formats to inspiration around choosing a 24 series number plate, not to mention invaluable tips on how to secure yours when the time comes, we’ve got you covered.

Basically, we’ll give you a full-blown run down so you’re fully prepared and ready to secure the perfect private registration.

Let’s kick things off with some inspiration.

24 series number plate series ideas.

The 24 series registration release offers a range of fantastic options for number plate purchases.

This is primarily because the 2 is an effective substitute for the letter “R”, and the 4 is a common way of spelling a word that contains the letter “A”. The two numbers are also pretty similar in shape, so they can be used to spell a word using the letters of the number plate only, with the number digits essentially blending in to the word.

Still unclear? Take a look at some examples below for some inspiration.

What are the rules for new number plates?

There are lots of guidelines around the displaying of your physical number plates, and we’ve explored regulations of private registrations in our recent blog.

However, one key rule to be aware of is that when you buy a new number plate, you can’t put it on an old vehicle. Basically, the rule is that you can’t make a car look newer than it is with the age identifier of a number plate.

To drill down on the specifics, you can’t put a 24 series millennium registration on a vehicle manufactured before March 2024. This, as you know, is in the future, so if you’re buying a private registration for a vehicle that you don’t own yet, you can buy a number plate on retention and then transfer it onto your vehicle once you have it in your possession.

Find out more about buying a number plate on retention in our DVLA Guide and visit our website for information regarding the transfer of a private reg from certificate to vehicle.
