Number Plate Ideas

Here at Netplates we accommodate our search functionality around our customers, filtering out results to find the best possible matches for your ideal registration. Here are a few examples of what you could base your registration around.


Name plates are generally the most common choices in the personalised number plate industry. Instantly recognisable anyone who knows your name will know your car just at a glance. Using a combination of letters and numbers see what is the best match you can come up with for your perfect registration number.


Initial plates are an ideal way of making a registration a bit more personal for those who don't want to display their full name on their personal registration number whilst also still hiding the age of the vehicle.


Having a plate which represents your job, business or profession is a great way to gain self-promotion whilst also keeping the registration relatively personal to the owner. Job based plates are easily recognisable and make you stand out on the road.


Hobby number plates are self-representative of the person who owns them. People are always looking for a way to show off what they are interested in be it memorabilia, clothing or tattoos but number plates can be just as effective, for example why not try a number plate with the initials of a beloved football team.

Age/Date of Birth

Age & Date of birth plates could be used in conjunction with perhaps an initial or a hobby plate but again they give a very personal edge. This is a great option to give the digits on a number plate more meaning than just the age of the vehicle.


For people that consider themselves petrol heads could pick up their own private registration starting with V6, V8 or V12 to show off the size of the engine whilst also disguising the age of the vehicle.

Title Plates

Another style of plate that can be used in conjunction with name or initial plates are title plates. Whether you want MR, M12 with MRS or MR5 both individually or a pair or even MISS, M155 or MS/M5 you can create any title you want in an eligible number plate format and combine it with your name and initials to create the perfect personal registration number.

Rude/Funny Plates

A less personal option for a number plate registration is to display a funny or rude word. Examples such as S3 XXY, BRE 45T or HUM 4N, these ones require some imagination.

Car Make/Model

Another option for a personal registration is to display the make or model of the vehicle, why not look through the range of our BMW or AUD plates. The possibilities are endless.
