There are certain regulations when it comes to getting a customised licence plate if your vehicle is older. First and foremost, if you aim to buy a newer style Prefix or Suffix based licence plate, then it definitely cannot feature a year that’s earlier than the age of your vehicle. This is to avoid any sort of cheating when it comes to selling used vehicles. Certain numbers pose as age identifiers within the Suffix and Prefix based licence plates. If you are not familiar with this system definitely contact DVLA before you want to purchase a personal licence plate.

It’s only eligible to purchase a licence plate for vehicles registered in the territory of United Kingdom including Northern Island. Vehicles registered in the Island of Man or in the Channel Islands are not eligible for this transaction.
No, as the Q registration stands for not being sure of the age or the identity of a vehicle, which altogether leaves the use of the vehicle in a limbo. And why would you spend money to put a plate on a vehicle you are no really allowed to drive anyways?
