£2,500 for a cherished plate. Or more or a bit less.

Change you name by deed-poll, about ten quid!

Simples. Change your car, change your name to suit.

I don't see what all the fuss is about.
I've got the original 3 letter 3 number plate on my car and have been asked twice "how much I paid for my private plate"

'Doctoring' number plates like this is completely illegal of course and I have seen a few people prosecuted for it. Which seems a bit absurd when you think that a.) the point of a numberplate is to ensure easy recognition and b.)The government flogs numbers that can clearly be reinterpreted at a premium!

Not everyone does it purely for vanity though. Many coach companies do this so clients are not judging them on the age of their coaches but on their quality.

Does it all really matter though ???


It probably matters to the car's owner.

I've had a couple of professional models on this site turn up for shoots in cars with registrations beginning M155 followed by their initials, and in both cases it seemed highly appropriate.

On a practical level:
People don't normally want to remember number plates because of your excellent driving.... it therefore seems rather foolish to have a memorable number plate - as it will only be remembered by people who have something to complain about (or report to the authorities)
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

Is fitting a private plate so much different to someone who names their house ' Bluebell End' or the likes, instead of using 131 Whatever Road like most other people do?

At one time, unlike many other European countries. the UK seemed preoccupied ( and to some extent still does ) with regard to new car ownership, when owners in certain circles were judged how successful they were by the age of the vehicle they drove, so it was a logical step for some owners to use a private plate to disguise the age of a vehicle. It's common practice today in private coach fleets etc to use them.

I would say  that right now in the UK, given the state of the economy, a 'good or unique' private plate represents a much better longer term financial investment than many conventional investments as there will always be a strong market for distinctive number plates as fewer of these number plates become available and some people will always pay a premium to own them.

Spot on. Anyone who names their house "Bell End" of whatever colour is sending exactly the same signals as a personal number plate. Without the cost, of course.

Many years ago I saw a Proton with a reg. beginning UUD. I was in hysterics. My passengers were confused.

I'm with your passengers on this one. Maybe you'd like to explain why this plate reduced you to hysterics.
