Is your name Dave? I read your number plate as We Go Dave, unless that's a coincidence.

It looks good there Dave...One question though, can you choose the letters for your plate?I thought that you could only choose the last three letters, if they were available, and the first two letters were assigned geographicly.

initial 60 initials work well and are often cheap because only having one initial at the front is from the old sequence rather than current plates. so A60 ABC will be cheaper than AC60 ABC.
(Or go for A61 ABC and it will look brand new in a year's time.)

good idea but some early prefix plates dont go that high on numbers
then i think you can only get certain ones like 60 600 etc etc

worth searching and kind of wish i had done that now rather than the one i have purchased

i have OF 60 WEE shall be fixing it to car with coloured screw right thru the 6 so it looks like a G

Just watch with this as I was stopped by the police and told to change the plate as it is illegal to alter the plate in such a way. I know of another guy who did the same - put a screw to change the look of a number and was told its a no no.
It costs you 60 quid fine for each plate if given a fine.
This includes altering the spacing and the font. (however I have changed the font to one which is almost the same but looks better and got away with it)

Also 61 plates won't be out yet as they are next years edition. You cannot put a newer number on an older car either. So a 61 on a 60 plate is a no no. DVLA check this when they assign the number.

saying that lots of options on the dvla site and sure you will get something to suit you. It is amazing how a letter or a number can hike the price up though.

The DVLA site is very easy to use and you can spend hours fiddling with letter and number combinations. Good luckEdited by: tchr1975

i got your point on altering but its only a fixing screw plate wont be altered in anyway
the previous person was talking about buying a prefix with 61 as number as at a glance it will look like your car is new not actually buying current style 61 plate
ie as he said A61ABC prefix as opposed to AB61ABC current

True, but the trick is to get A61 ABC rather than AB61 ABC; at quick glance it looks like a new car but really A61 ABC would have been the issue of 1983.
