What are cheap dateless private number plates?

Dateless number plates are extremely popular because they're one of the only examples of car registrations without a year indicator. They also have a rich history behind them, and they were the original style of number plate released by the DVLA (Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency) in 1903. The history behind dateless registration marks, not to mention their distinctive appearance, makes them an extremely popular option for car number plates in the UK.

However, the issue for many private number plate enthusiasts when it comes to dateless reg plates is the cost. They're interchangeably referred to as cherished private number plates for a reason, and the fact that a dateless reg will essentially cover up the age identifying aspect of a private registration, they generally come with a hefty price tag. This age hiding ability is the reason they're often also referred to as cover plates.

Dateless private number plates, or cover/cherished number plates, are one of the most sought-after number plate formats, and often the most expensive.

Affordable dateless private number plates with National Numbers

If you're simply interested in disguising the age of your vehicle in a road legal way whilst adhering to British standards, even if you're just after a new registration bargain, the perfect plate is probably waiting for you on this page. This is because every one of the dateless private registration plates you'll find in this section is under £750, so as far as dateless, or cherished, DVLA personalised registrations go, they're firmly at the budget end of the market, and give you the chance to own a dateless vehicle registration without spending a fortune.

What are the advantages of having a dateless number plate?

Firstly, they can go on any vehicle, old or new, so there's no concern about your vehicle being a suitable age to display it, which isn't the case with current style or new number plates that feature an age identifier. Secondly, they can hide the age of the vehicle because they have no year identifier, as we've discussed above. This means that it’s impossible to tell the age of the vehicle purely from the number plate when you choose the dateless format.

Many people also say that dateless number plates look more prestigious, making for the ideal personalised number plate if you have a more unique vehicle or story to tell with your number plate.
