This gives motorists more scope to purchase a new vehicle without worrying about the threat of superstition and enjoy a 62 plate car instead. This is a rare opportunity for UK drivers to take advantage of a registration plate.”

Superstitious motorists looking to avoid the dreaded ‘13’ plate might wish to buy a new car this September when plates carry the ’62’ series.

The 62 series of personalised registration number plates have been available to purchase since 12th June, however, new registrations will be seen on the road with the 62 plate from 1st September.** Car Loan 4U could help motorists looking to get their hands on a new vehicle this autumn.

The new 62 series will be seen on vehicles that are first registered on or after 1st September 2012.

In a bid to help superstitious motorists, the DVLA has proposed that motorists can avoid the 13 plate by continuing the 62 plate prefix from 1st September 2012 to 28th February 2013. Typically those who are planning on buying a new car in March 2013 would have to have a 13 plate car.

The Vehicle Remarketing Association argues that this could prove challenging for the used car market.*** The VLA claim that drivers could be offered considerably less than the car is worth because of its registration plate.

Car Loan 4U Co-Director Ryan Dignan comments;

“Car Loan 4U welcomes the DVLA’s proposal to give motorists the opportunity to avoid the unlucky number 13 registration plate.

“This gives motorists more scope to purchase a new vehicle without worrying about the threat of superstition and enjoy a 62 plate car instead. This is a rare opportunity for UK drivers to take advantage of a registration plate.”

Anyone looking to buy a new car either in September or March might want to consider their finance options.

Car Loan 4U offers affordable car credit with rates starting from just 7.9% APR.
