What Are Personalized Number Plates?

Personalized number plates came into conceptualization some years ago and it was only a facility used by a few rich people who could afford such a luxury. And these certain few people were much richer than those who chose not to. Most people just went along with the numbers in the registration plate that were given along with their vehicle. But now the scene has changed and everyone seems to be much inclined to the whole idea of personalized registration plates for their new cars and other vehicles. There is a very simple reason behind this – so that people can remember their own registration plates with ease.

Let’s talk a little more about the two kinds of number plates. When you buy a vehicle you can either be assigned a number plate or you can choose your own registration number – the one you can create on your own. An assigned registration plate generally follows the format of two letters, two digits, and then three letters. The first two letters represents the local office allotted with the number. The two numbers in between the letters specifies the period in which it was issued. The three letters that come at the last are quite unique to the individual who owns the vehicle and they have no real meaning.

A personalized number plate is bought generally by those who can afford them or need to assert their identity on those around them. A personalized registration plate is not a very common thing even now but it is on the path of popularity. Unlike the numbers that are assigned with the vehicle when you buy it, a personalized registration number does not follow any specific format.

Another advantage of having a personalized registration number is that if your car gets stolen you would be able to track your car with the help of your unique registration number. Also it is a great way to promote your company or institution by putting the initials of your company name on your license plate. It is also said to be a really good investment opportunity. Really old personalized number plates can be very costly as it is a unique representation of history of a personality. A very obvious reason is to just represent yourself in a really fun way. Your number plate could be something only you can understand, something personal and funny that actually makes a very difficult and confusing number really easy to remember.
