Irish number plates make sense
Buying an Irish number plate makes a lot of sense if you’re looking for a good cheap number plate.
There are usually plenty of these registration numbers for sale, making them much more affordable than other styles of number plates. Even shortened versions of first names (like BAZ or LEZ) can be acquired from just £500.
Irish number plates do have their limitations though – they must have either a Z or an I in them… so if you happen to have a name that fits within the Irish lettering system you’re in luck. If not, then you’ll need to shell out a bit more for your name on a private number plate. Or you can compromise with your initials instead… if your budget won’t stretch that far.
The great thing about Irish number plates is that they can be assigned to any car. Whether yours is an old classic car, or brand new and shiny straight from the showroom… you can transfer an Irish number plate to it. That’s because they have no age identifier, so they can be put on to any car of any age. And they can be used here on mainland UK as well as in Northern Ireland.
Transferring an Irish number plate can occasionally be a bit more complicated, involving two transfers. But the company you’re buying your number plate from should take care of all that for you.
All in all, because they’re reasonably affordable and there’s usually plenty of choice… it’s worth looking at Irish number plates.
