Top Tips for Personalised Number Plates

Personalized plates are a lot of fun and they’re also a good way of making a statement when you feel like it. They’re sometimes an image statement, and sometimes a comment to the world as a whole. If your friends and your mechanic spend a lot of time trying to figure out what your personal plates mean, you’ve got a good set of plates.


Plates, past and present

If you search Google images for personalized plates, you’ll see a history of plates. The old plates from years past are pretty strange things now, just looking a bit simple. The original personalized plates included things like MaxIMe, Sexy, etc. The new plates are a lot more inventive, and they tend to be text usage.

Some plates are cute to the point of being almost unforgivable. Others are quite basic, irritating things like GOD4ME or other messages. A few are private jokes. Basic name plates are forgivable, if unimaginative. At least they have identity. The odd plate like DEATH can give an impression, but hardly gets people guessing, even with ghoul and zombie movies to help.

Interestingly some people use actual global trade names. One plate is MREBAY, for example. The copyright issues would get an army of lawyers retired early, but in practice it’s a grey area.

How people see your plates is something else. A plate like IMABANKER could be a really tactless move in Iceland, the US or the UK. In the US, IMURIRS could be just plain cruel. In many places JOBS4U could be considered unhelpful at best, unjustifiable at worst.

Picking your plates

Depending on the message you want to send, plates can do a lot. Here’s a few possibilities:

PSYCHO- You’re either an Alfred Hitchcock fan or extremely honest.

DUBIKRS- Looks a bit desperate.

F8FOOL- Probably true from a purely philosophical perspective, but is it what you want to say?

1DERING- Not encouraging to other drivers.

CUPCAKE- Suitable for the very brave or the masochist.

2BERN2B- Suitable for Swiss couples, people trying to pass on freeways and theatrical threats.

DOOM4U- Blatant optimism is guaranteed to annoy someone, somewhere. This is a good alternative.

Translations of plates in other languages

One of the obvious developments since the global rat race started is that what’s funny in your language can be pure scatology in other languages. In German, French and other languages, even abbreviations can mean something, so if you’re travelling, think about the possibilities. Just be thankful you’re not travelling in Asia or the Middle East, and check for translations, unless you want a lot more attention than you’re used to.

Whatever your taste in plates, and whatever message you want to send the world, make sure that your plate is something you like. Your personalized plate should be a true personal thing, a treasure and fun when you get your car servicing. If you want individuality, you’ve got it. Take your time, pick your plate, and really have a ball.
