Prefix number plates are the format the came before the number plates we’re familiar with today. The year of issue was represented by a number at the beginning of the plate – then between one to three numbers followed, followed again by three more letters.
This gives a format of ‘A123 BCD’ – making plates like ‘P5 YCO’, ‘S73 VEN’, and ‘M3 BMW’ possible.
Of course, carefully choosing your prefix letter and numbers can create words from numbers – so you might decide on a creative plate that includes ‘K155’, ‘H1’, ‘B19’, ‘M155’ or one of many others.
Only a handful of letters were ever excluded from use on prefix number plates, so try our search now – you’ll almost certainly find a plate that’s a match for your name, job, personality, or interests!
Even the latest prefix plate is now approaching 20 years old – so adding one to your car will make it stand out from the crowd and hide its true age.
Prefix plates are also a great gift for someone you love – and the right plate can be an amazing investment too.
