I'm really sorry to have caused a bit of confusion here. Pieter is quite right, all of the photos in my post were taken at different times and L4 BCY has only even been assigned to one vehicle at a time. (If I had actually owned all of those at the same time it would probably mean I would have a Leica M11).

Personalised number plates here in the UK are very big business and some are sold for ridiculous amounts, very often worth more than the vehicle they are assigned to! My wife bought my plate many years ago as a Christmas present and it signifies (to us at least) "Lesley for Brian Colin Young". Every time I have changed my car, or motorbike, I have paid to have the number transferred to the new car and the original registration number is reassigned.

There are a lot of regulations but the most significant one, as our number plates signify year of original registration is that you cannot put a private number plate on a vehicle that would make it look newer than it is, but it is okay to assign an old plate to a new car.

A couple of links to illustrate:
UK Government website page explaining the rules here
10 most expensive number plates sold in the UK here

Thanks for taking an interest Addy and to Harm and Pieter for explaining.

In Belgium a plate is personal (and can be personalised) but can only be used on one vehicle at the time. But when I bought a new car (and buy a new one in the future) my registration plate will stay the same.

I would think the same is true for the UK and these pictures were all taken at different points in time, but I'm sure Brian can tell us.

That does not explain different cars having the same license plate. I feel a license plate should uniquely identify the car. Whether the license plate is linked to the car or the owner is irrelevant imho. Normal British registration plates are linked to the car with an area code, then a age identifier and finally random letters. Like in The Netherlands, by default, a UK registration plate will accompany a vehicle throughout the vehicle's lifetime. The exception are personalised plates.

With personalised plates, how do you know which car speeded if they all have the same plates?

I am surprised you can put the same number plate on different cars . Nice set, like the Landrovers.

Anyway, DAF 33:

I'm in motoring nostalgia mode now so I thought I'd share a few photos of my vehicles that have worn my personal numberplate:

1. (2010)


2. (2013)


3. (2016)


4. (2018)


5. (2020)


All shot at our last home in Rutland. How fast time flies by

Ours from 1985 is maintained by a dedicated workshop. We bought it in 2009 for 4k, now it is worth about 12,5k.
We love to go camping in it, no, with it. We do sleep in a tent



In France, this summer, on a camping site in the department of Gers.

Thanks Harm. I know the deux chevaux well and was tempted recently to invest in one to tinker with, but it was too far gone with the dreaded tin worm. A work colleague of mine a few years ago had a red and white "Dolly" 2CV and spent a small fortune having it professionally restored. He takes it to shows now.

Yours looks great

Hello Brian,

the CitroŽn 2CV still has the umbrella-grip: the push-pull gear lever, and it still is great fun to drive it. It just drove almost 4800km in 3 weeks to France and back.



Here you see ours, still going strong.
