Just found out that this list also applies to the reg plates where the three letter code is at the beginning of the plate (as it is on my Mk1) :D

This means my Mk1 came from Central London originally :)

It has well and truely been converted to a northerner now tho :halo: :lol:

Black Si - Norwich (damn, wondered why it had 5 wheels...)
Blue Si - Preston

And the Pulsar, my god, considering I was the first UK owner and registered it in the central Birmingham DVLA office, with my home Birmingham addy, they've put it as DUDLEY!!! Nooooooooooo, the Pulsar is a YAM YAM!!! :lol:

Post subject:  Re: Registration plate meaning!

if you look at your reg plate and go to the first page of this thread you can figure out where your car originates from maxwell

Post subject:  Re: Registration plate meaning!

I can categorically say now that there is some southern irish towns/places mentioned and its not part of the uk. So the list is false.

The southern irish regs go by the county and are issued: year, county, random number ie 91-c-12345, so the car was 1991 from cork and the number is unique to that car. Any county that begins with same letter usually had a secondary letter. Ie county clare becomes CE. The reason Cork gets C is because its a larger/more populus county- same with Dublin - D and Donegal - DL!

Back to topic Northern Ireland falls under uk so yes this list does apply. But some of the facts are wrong. Few letter combos where never issued in NI for example: Gz - belfast.....that must be pre 1950! But even at that, i have never heard of a gz (orany of these *z's) being mentioned in the old 2 letter or newer 3 letter combo NI reg line up....as well as:

Mz - belfast
Oz - belfast
Pz - belfast
Sz - down
Uz - belfast
Vz - tyrone
Wz - belfast
Yz - derry/londonderry

Few need corrected too:

Ui was tyrone not londonderry
Rz was belfast not antrim
I am also near sure iw was tyrone not londonderry

Also xz is missing from the list!!

Yeah the thread is a few years old, but before XZ, it was RZ. So its nearly as up to date as today. But as i say alot isnt right!! Where you get the list Danny?
