no you can't, the reg cant make the car appear newer than it is r is newer

ie you can use any pre fix reg 1990 under and not over

so you can use a b c d e f g h at the start, but not j k l m n p r s t v w x y

This 'S' reg R33 was parked next to my 1998 'R' reg R34 at the last meet i attended.
It wasn't until I uploaded the pics that i noticed it.
The guy said that DVLA cocked the plate up,so i think this is a unique R33.
I.E being plated a lot newer than it actually is.



The JUMVEA certificate say it is a 95 car. so it should be on an M plate.

I bet that is worth a few quid mate?
How do DVLA cock stuff up like plates for year of manufacture and get away with it like?

it happens when imports are registered as there are 2 boxes that need dates. One is date of first registration in the uk and the other is declared date of manufacture. Ive seen them mixed about or filled in with the same date countless times.

Not that i would wish it on anyone,
but surely this could possibly open a can of worms when you come to sell your car?
If you have a plate newer than the age of your vehicle,
then a potential buyer could be really wary about a possible ringer etc?
Even though you know the vehicle is 100% legal,
it could be tough trying to explain to a potential buyer.
This is just my opinion here folks,but surely you'd think
that the DVLA of all people would re-issue the correct detailed logbook to avoid any such complications?
