DVLA move to clear up registration plate confusion

Are you confused by new car registration plate changes? With so many DVLA changes to the number plate system over recent years, it is no surprise that many people do not know how to tell what the year of a car on the road is by its number plate. This year DVLA now have two plate changes per year and this year for cars registered from March to August the number plate will be a "17" plate and from September 2017 to February 2018 it will be a "67" plate.

The current format for vehicle registration numbers was introduced by DVLA on 1st September 2001 for all new vehicles being registered in the UK. The format is two letters, two numbers, a space and three further letters. The first two letters are the DVLA memory tag, the two numbers (the age identifier) indicate the age of the vehicle, and the last three letters are random. DVLA INF104
