DVLA move to clear up reg plate confusion
ARE YOU confused by new car registration plate changes? With so many DVLA changes to the number plate system over recent years, it is no surprise that many people do not know how to tell what the year of a car on the road is by its number plate. To make it clear, the DVLA now have two plate changes a year and this year – for cars registered from March through to August – the number plate represents the year, e.g. cars produced in 2017 will have a ‘17’ plate. From September through to February, the number plate represents the year prefixed by a six for September, e.g. cars produced from September 2017 until February 2018 will have a ‘67’ plate. This method of identifying has multiple uses, including being able to narrow down certain cars based on location. The age identifier system of the registration also has such awareness that many car dealers utilise it instead of the actual year to advertise the car.
With those shiny new plates about to hit the streets, there will be a host of deals to further tempt you into that new dream car. Have a look through our featured dealerships and keep an eye out for offers on 16-plate stock that dealers will now want to get rid of to make way for the new models.
