Cherished Car Number Plates and Personalised Registration Numbers

The premier site for private number plates, cherished number plates, cheap number plates and reg plate transfers.


Cherished Number Plates

Cherished number plates which are also known as dateless or antique number plates are vehicle registration numbers that were first issued before 1963 and therefore do not have a suffix or prefix age identifier. These types of cherished number plates are usually more expensive and are sometimes more desired by professional people and many motor trades and vehicle enthusiasts and are seen as a very good investment.  We have a huge selection of these types of cherished number plates. They are classed as 'cherished' because they have remained in circulation for a very long time usually passing down in families for  generations. They exist either on a V778 or V750 retention certificate or on a vehicle.

Cherished Number Plates Search

This site has a searchable database of over 40 million suffix, prefix, Northern Ireland, current style and dateless cherished number plates as well as unissued DVLA personalised number plates. Our super-search is probably one of the fastest and most effective available for both prefix and current style number plates as well as older style, irish and antique cherished number plates. It allows you to use whatever search terms you choose; numbers, letters, names or words or a combination of both. You can also search for cheap bargain number plates and discount registrations by entering your desired amount instead of searching for your initials etc.

All our cherished number plates are clearly priced there are no hidden extras with this site but all of our personalised registration numbers are liable for an £80 DVLA registration transfer fee and some incur a VAT charge where marked.
