Do you own a private number plate? Would you want a plate on your car that spells something special?
Some people will go to surprising lengths to put ‘cherished numbers’ on their cars. Earlier this year one West Ham fan paid £57,000 for the licence plate WE57 HAM.
What’s the appeal of having a personal car registration plate?
Personal number plates tend to be found on more expensive cars. For example, 41.9% of 4×4 owners and 38.3% of sports car owners have private number plates.
However the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) has banned some number plates for being too naughty – like L4 TEX and STR 11P.
Do you own one – or do you think they’re a waste of money? If you were going to buy one, what would it spell out?
