This note is not part of the notice, but is intended to indicate its general effect.
This notice, which comes into force on 22 January 2007, amends clause 2(3)(a) of the Transport (Vehicle Registration and Licensing) Notice 1995 by adding 2 new subparagraphs, which enable the use of the following combinations of letters and numerals on registration plates for motor cycles, mopeds, and tractors:
•any letter, followed by any numeral from 1 to 9 (both numbers inclusive), followed by any combination of 3 letters; or
•any letter, followed by any numeral from 1 to 9 (both numbers inclusive), above any combination of 3 letters.
This notice also inserts a new subclause (5) into clause 2, which makes clear that distinguishing marks on a registration plate assigned to a vehicle in 1 of the formats permitted under subclause (3)(a) or (b), cannot be assigned to another vehicle, whether in the same or in a different format.
