Two massive number plate changes coming in for drivers from 1 March

15

Two massive changes to number plates are coming in the next two weeks. From March 1, cars registered will be given a 22 tag – rather than the current 71.

And the new number plates for cars and vans will be made from a new material, which is supposedly tougher and they are reportedly more resistant to damage and abrasion.

Number plates can now only display solid black lettering as two-tone plates that used different shades to create a 3D or 4D effect have been banned.

“The impact of Covid and the global shortage of semi-conductors has seriously impacted new car registrations this year, pushing up demand for used cars. Previous AA research suggested that values of some used cars have risen by up to 57 per cent.

“What we expect to see in 2022 is the second-hand market benefitting from resurgent car demand. We also believe the way people pay for their cars will change and diversify. The economic uncertainty of Covid and the transition to electric cars will continue to influence drivers until the traditional notion of paying full-price for a car and keeping it for as long as possible is something for the history books.”
