General Guides  New Launches 

The new 17 number plates hit the market at the beginning of March and there has already been a great deal of interest surrounding them. Every six months a new plate is released, and this 17 number plate runs from 1st March 2017 until the end of August when cars will then be issued with 67 plates. Having a 17 plate not only shows that you have one of the newest cars on the road, but it also brings with it a certain amount of status, as other road users can clearly see that you car is only a few weeks old.

If you are someone who prides themselves on having a brand new car or are someone who likes to have the most up to date number plate available, the chances are you have given some thought as to what vehicle you want. However, with so many options available it can be difficult to choose.
