Where to Find Cheap Private Number Plates Under £200

Looking to buy personalised number plates without breaking the bank? Finding cheap private number plates under £200 can be a great way to get a unique, customised look for your vehicle. Learn helpful tips to search online, and find out how you can get the perfect plate at a reasonable price!

Check out online plate suppliers.

One of the best ways to find affordable deals on private number plates is to check out the various online plate sellers. Most online number plate sellers will offer a number of filters which can be used to narrow down the selection of number plates to choose from, and these filters will likely include price. Therefore your first port of call is to use the price filters and set them to £200 or less, and see what they have for sale. Some number plate sellers that have specific pages for private number plates under £200 are SwiftReg, TopReg, and R4V.

Look for promotional offers on online registration companies.

Online registration companies often offer special discounts, such as online purchase discounts or seasonal promotional offers (e.g. Black Friday) on private number plates (we note that National Numbers, for example, have already announced their Black Friday 2023 sale as 24th November 2023, so that's one to keep an eye on!). It’s always worth checking back regularly to see if any of these types of deals are available and making use of them when they are, as they may be around for a limited time only. With savvy shopping and an awareness of what discounts are on off, you should be able to find loads of cheap private number plates under £200!

Shop around and compare prices.

Shopping around different registration companies is often your best option for finding cheap private number plates under £200, because you will often find that different number plate agents are selling the same private number plate but for different prices. We have made it really easy to carry out a number plate price check to compare prices once you've found your preferred private number plate. Consider packages where you can pay up front with a lump sum or spread the cost over a period of time. Doing so will allow you to find the best value for money based on your own unique budget and preferences.

Take advantage of discounted plates from the DVLA auctions.

One of the best ways to find under £200 private number plates is to take advantage of discounted plates from the DVLA auctions. The DVLA Timed Auctions in particular are held online and therefore the most convenient option for most buyers. These are held every few months (you can find out the next auction dates on the DVLA website), and with reserve prices starting as low as £70 there are lots of great number plates to be found for bargain prices!

Consider purchasing older plates from previous owners.

Buying pre-owned private number plates from previous owners can be a great way to get cheap, unique plates. You may be able to find pre-owned plates at greatly reduced prices. Marketplaces such as Plate Trader or eBay are worth keeping an eye on for second hand number plates for sale.
