Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to deal with A1PLATES?

This is one of the most sought-after questions, so we decided to make it top of the list. We secure our website with a DigiCert SSL certificate, we want you to feel happy and safe dealing with us so please contact us if you feel uneasy.

Can I use UK mainland private number plates on my Northern Ireland registered Vehicle?

Yes you can! The DVLA, based in Swansea, has now become the overall governing body for vehicle licensing in the UK, which includes Northern Ireland. So, if your vehicle is registered in Northern Ireland you can proceed to purchase any GB private number plate.

My number plate is listed for sale on your site?

This can often be an error due to the fact we work multiple agencies. If your plate has been sold, make sure you've informed everyone you've listed it for sale with. If you'd like it removing please email

How long does the transfer process take until I can put it on my car?

Our service often includs our speedy-transfer option on most registrations, this means that we can often complete the paperwork the same day we receive all of the relevant paperwork from you. This can sometimes be slowed, but we'll let you know of any delays.
