Before replacing your vehicles registration with a private number plate you must first ensure that your vehicle is of an age that can have your chosen registration assigned to it. It is not possible to assign a new reg to a vehicle if it would make the vehicle look newer than it is. If the registration is the same age or older than your vehicle, it can be assigned to your vehicle.

Examples: If your vehicle is a 55 plate (AB55 CDE first registered in September 2005) you can't assign a 58 registration (AB58 CDE first registered in September 2008) to the vehicle as it would make the vehicle look 3 years newer than it actually is. Similarly a J prefix vehicle (dating from August 1991) could not have a T prefix registration (dating from March 1999) assigned to it as it would make the vehicle look 8 years newer than it actually is.
