Personally, I think a personal plate finishes a car of nicely. Its all personal opinion though lol. I think plates that spell things are tacky, but ones which are unique to you and may be mysterious and leave other guiessing is always good. :) Something like X100 PW or something

Did think about trying to sourse the registration of my first ever car but no luck . . . (and I am guessing the car it was on has been scrapped by now as it was on a 1981 Suzuki SC100GX) and then keep it for all future cars

I was thinking more in terms of what plate do you put on the car you sell, i thought i read somewhere that when you register your private plate on the car then the old one becomes invalid or scrapped. So if you decide to sell and want to keep your private plate for your next vehicle then what do you sell the vehicle with?


If you want to keep your personal plate for your next car,as I have done with all my cars,you either have it put straight on your new car (subject to DVLA paperwork arriving it time) and dvla will re issue the ORIGINAL plate it had,or you can ,as others have done here put it on retention to keep for when you get your next car,and again DVLA will reissue the the ORIGINAL plate the car came with,so you can sell your car legally

One drawback with retention is you can only have it on retention for 12 months you must either use it,sell it or return it when the 12 months are up. (check on the paperwork or notes are available from DVLA website)

lastly again as others have said here,so long as you are still the legal owner,and so long as you can prove that,..............you can change your name,or address ,again proof needed, (just the same as single women do when they get married) and it will only show one owner.

God, picking a nice plate is harder then picking the car in the first place . . . .

P60 SFO of that lot for sure - but I'm sure you can do better than all of those...

Slow Po? Really? :lol:

Yes - personal plate is personal to me and those are my initials - tbh it would be a good one as being S10W is not one of the things I do well . . . . not with 120bhp to play with anyway

One of the best plates I ever saw was 130 LOX and it was on a Ferrari at a garage in Leicester!

I couldn't afford the plate let alone the car...........not that I've ever wanted a Ferrari of course. ;)

Good choice--some people have a personal plate which relates to their car--eg I've seen **** PUG on a Peugeot 106.

Fantastic.......until he / she decides to buy a Fiesta........then the plate means jack s*** and is a waste of money as you would be forced to sell it with the car! :rolleyes:

When i actually have the money i'm going to fork out for R8 MPX

MP being my initials and it looks quite cool

and i can put it on my Audi R8 if i ever had one!!

I was also thinking of M111 KLX

i thought it looked like Mikal, that being my name, but my brother (as always) !Removed! on my bonfire and said it looks like milk.

so R8 MPX it is!
