Vehicle Registration Year

Looking to find your cars year of manufacture from the registration number?
The following tables show the year or registration for the current and previous versions of registration numbers.

Important notes:
Vehicles with custom plates or Q plates are not covered, as they can be any year.
The registration is the date the vehicle was first registered in the UK. It is possible for it to have been manufactured the previous year but not registered, and import vehicles may not have the correct year specific registration number.
