Vehicle Registration Years

 

You can use the charts below to quickly identify the original year of issue for the three main registration formats.

Please remember when choosing a registration that you can only assign it to a vehicle of the same age or newer than the registration itself. So, for example, if you selected a 17 series New style reg (2017), you'd only be able to display it on a vehicle first registered on or after this date. You couldn't put it on a 55 reg (2005) vehicle.

The golden rule is that you can't make a vehicle look younger than it is!
