What is a Registration number?
A Registration number is a mandatory identification for a motor vehicle, administered
by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). A number plate is displayed, by law,
on the front and back of the motor vehicle and is up to 7 characters in length. Most vehicles
display the original registration number from date of purchase. Some owners purchase personalised
number plates (as known as cherised plates) which may not be known to us. If you are searching
with a personalised plate then try searching by the VIN number instead.
