Motor Insurance

From 2011 the Government has introduced new rules and regulations about motor insurance in the UK. The Government is working with insurance companies and Governement departments such as the DVLA (Driver Vehicle Licencing Agency) to combat uninsured drivers.

It is therefore particularly important that you don't forget to renew your car insurance and ensure you have a current MOT as insurance can be invalidated by an expired MOT or expired Road Tax.

Make sure you have current:

TIP: To avoid fines and penalties for forgetting to renew your car insurance, your MOT and road tax or SORN set reminders on your mobile phone, email calandars each year so you don't forget your renewal dates!

How Does the UK Number Plate System Work?

Vehicle registration plates are the mandatory number plates used to display the registration mark of a vehicle. Number plates have existed in the UK since 1904. It is compulsory for most motor vehicles used on public roads to display them.

The Motor Car Act 1903, which came into force on 1 January 1904, required all motor vehicles to be entered on an official vehicle register, and show carry number plates. The Act was passed in order that vehicles could be easily traced in the event of an accident or contravention of the law.

Ever wondered how the letters and number on UK number plates are allocated to vehicles and what does the number plate on your car tell you about where and when your car was first registered in the UK?

See what the letters and numbers stand for on vehicle number plates in the UK since the latest system of vehicle number plates was introduced in September 2001.

What's the next number plate after 13 out from 1 September 2013 and how does it work from now on?

Whats the next number plate? What comes after 12?
