Personalised number plates can be pretty cool. However, like anything it can be quite easy to get it wrong and go for something quite cheesy that doesn’t look good. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the idea at all, just like there is nothing wrong with the concept of cars themselves, of clothes, of literally anything from the way a house is designed to what pets you own and how you look after them. What you own and how you personalise it says a lot about you. So for those people who bash personalised number plates outright without any thought as to what they are – a luxury item, like a piece of jewellery or anything really – is a little ignorant of the facts. So, yes: just as there can be gaudy over the top items of jewellery, bad taste in dressing up your pet, ugly houses, there can be can be very cheesy number plates.
It goes without saying really that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they look, where they live, what car they drive, and all the rest of it. The same, of course, goes for personalised number plates. UK figures of sales of number plates are huge: last year the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) reported that the sale of personalised number plates raised £67 million. The facts speak for themselves, but to make it clear: it is such a huge business still that it cannot just be a certain kind of person who buys a private number plate – just as people from all sections of society buy an expensive pair of shoes, so it goes with number plate customisation, too.
It is a way to express yourself, just like anything in life that can be bought and worn or displayed in some way. In fact, there is even a thriving business in the auction of customised number plates in the UK, for timeless plates that would and could suit anybody with any car, but these often sell for hundreds of thousands of pounds; just as many luxury items have become more affordable and therefore accessible for everybody, customised number plates can now be bought for relatively reasonable prices. But because the same people who “invested” in these now-mega expensive plates years ago are the same people attending these auctions, its popularity has not declined. The market has merely expanded.
