Why does the number matter on registration plates?

Essentially, it tells you at a glance how old the van is. This is a factor that buyers frequently take into account when assessing the quality of a given vehicle, so that makes it a handy identifier that can often provide the best value if you decide to sell your van further down the line.

The first two characters on the plate are the second most important pair, as they indicate where the vehicle was registered. Each region in the UK has is assigned its own unique area code. A few major examples are below.

The last three letters of the number plate aren’t quite as crucial – they’re randomly generated, and allocated to dealers when the cars are registered.
