Superstitious drivers get to skip the new ‘13’ plates
There’s no need to be scared of choosing a brand-new car this spring, as the DVLA is offering potential owners the chance to opt out of the latest ‘13’ number plate.
It’s an unprecedented move - allowing drivers to keep buying new cars with the previous year’s plate has never been done in the UK before. The DVLA is clearly taking the misgivings of some UK drivers very seriously, especially as a recent poll by the AA revealed that almost a third of their members would avoid buying a ‘13’ plate. Superstitious buyers will be given the option of reverting to the ‘62’ number plate, which was introduced back in September.
Motorists who have no such misgivings have been rushing to dealerships since the ‘13’ plate was introduced at the start of this month. March is always a busy time at showrooms because of the launch of new plates. The ‘13’ is set to be especially popular with owners who want a custom plate, as it can look like either “le” or a “B” amongst the other letters. As the next switch to the ‘63’ plate will be made in August, drivers only have a short time to get their hands on a new ‘13’ car.
Having the latest plate has long been a badge of honour for UK drivers. The most ambitious have been known to have their new car delivered at midnight, so that they could show off the model as quickly as possible.
