Number plates require you to be imaginative and thoughtful, replacing certain letters with numbers and vice versa, as well as using fillers that help to emphasise your key message.

 *Hide Your Vehicle’s Age. Standard registration plates reveal your car’s age, but with a personalised registration, the age of your vehicle will remain a mystery to all but the most discerning road users.
