Reading and Understanding Private Number Plates

Ever wondered what exactly the personalised number plate in front of you was supposed to read?

Here's a guide to help you understand what numbers can represent what letters and vice versa.
A - 4
B - 3, 13, 8
E - 3
G - 6, 9
H - 11
I - 1
L - 1
M - 11
N - 11
O - 0
R - 2, 12
S - 5
T - 7
U - 11
Z - 2

The above are ones that are generally used as stand-ins but you may have also seen alternatives in place ie.
J6 SON instead of J4 SON or L7 NDA instead of L1 NDA.

The differences between them would usually be reflected in the asking price. M1 KES, for instance, would command a greater price at market than M77 KES, as would L4 URA over L444 URA.

If you're having difficulty finding the perfect combination for yourself or someone else, please get in touch with one of our team who would be happy to assist you in finding the perfect registration.
