A Guide to the Number Plate system


We’ve Got Your Number

Number plates are unique to every vehicle.


Since 1903, when the first system was introduced, the combination of letters and numbers, has given each vehicle it's own identity, ensuring that no two vehicles look exactly alike.

The 1903 Motor Car Act brought with it the UK's first official vehicle register and made displaying front and rear number plates, compulsory.

But, do you know how they all started?


We've decided to put together our very own Guide to the Number Plate system, where we'll talk you through all of the ins and outs of exactly how they came to evolve!


So, let's get stuck in!
