How it works
Go to Create a Plate to pick a number plate combination, choose a style, and buy your new personalised plates.
Lots of people start with:
The day and month they were born
A meaningful word
The short answer is “It depends”. Different types of plates have different rules.
Many plates allow for six characters, but some have seven characters, and others have less.
Some plates might require three letters and three numbers, in any order. Other plates might require two numbers, followed by four letters. Other plates offer total flexibility. It depends.
Classic plates will let you transform your standard-issue combination into stylish black and white plates.
There are dozens of plates in our range.

Submit this at your Department of Transport and Main Roads Customer Service Centre, along with your old standard issue plates. Then grab a screwdriver, because it’s time to attach your new Personalised Plates.|
