4 Digit Number Plates


What are 4-Digit Number Plates?

4 Digit Number Plates are a branch of Dateless Number Plates issued by the DVLA. 

Ordinarily, Dateless Number Plates have 1 to 4 numbers followed by 1 to 4 letters and vice versa.

4 Digit Number Plates have either 3 letters followed by 1 number or 4 numbers followed by 1 letter. This sometimes also results in them being referred to as 3 by 1 number plates.

Why are 4 Digit Number Plates Special?

4 Digit Number Plates are special for a number of reasons.

Firstly, there is a general rule of thumb when it comes to cherished number plates (also known as dateless number plates), that the shorter the combination of the private registration number, the more valuable it is.

Though 4-digit number plates aren’t the shortest combination you can get - that would be 2 digit combinations with 1 letter and 1 number - they are among the shortest combinations available on the market and this makes them both special and incredibly cherished.

Secondly, 4-digit number plates are usually only released at auctions. However, many drivers throughout the UK sell their 4-Digit number plates to Absolute Reg, meaning you can often find a 4-Digit number plate listed through us.

Thirdly, 4 digit number plates are visually compact, and this helps them to really stand out.

Furthermore, because 4 digit number plates are dateless, this means that they don’t have an age identifier, and can therefore be attached to absolutely any motor vehicle.

Lastly, 4 digit number plates often resemble very common names such as Nate (NAT3), Johnny (JON1), Bonny (BON1) and Kate (KAT3). As personalised registration numbers can never be repeated, these similarities are only found on 4-Digit number plates and this makes them special.

4-Digit Number Plates as Gifts

Personalised Number Plates always make incredible gifts no matter the length of the combination or the style.

However, 4-digit number plates are particularly special, and this makes for an additionally unique gift.

They can also be attached to any motor vehicle whatsoever as they are dateless and without an age identifier. This means that no matter what car your loved one drives, they can always attach your gift to their car, and will continue to do so long after they get a new vehicle too.

Lastly, if you’re lucky, you may also find a 4-Digit number plate that literally spells out the name of the person you’re giving the gift to.
