Buy a personal registration plate

Your car’s registration number is unique, but it’s also rather generic and a bit dull. How much cooler would it be to have your name or initials on your number plate? It’s a lot easier than you might think. You can’t put a plate on your car that makes it look newer than it is though, so if your car dates from 1998, it’s no good buying a 2010 registration for it – but you could buy one from 1995 for example. Prices start from a few hundred pounds, and if you sell up later on, you could even make a profit.
