Number plates: all you need to know

Every year, two sets of number plates are brought into circulation, on 1 March and 1 September.

When a vehicle is sold and registered, the number plates accompanying it identify the vehicle and enable you to calculate the age and place of origin of the vehicle.

The first two letters of the number plate are known as the ‘memory tag’ and reflect the origin of first registration, acting as a local identifier. The following two numbers are the ‘age identifier’ and indicate the year – or rather six-month period – in which the vehicle was registered. The final three letters of the number plate are randomly generated.
