Number Plate Classifieds

Number Plate Classifieds is the trading style we use for our number plate advertising website.

We are the first, the oldest and the leading number plate classifieds website in the UK - the first to introduce new concepts such as:

  • Paying once to advertise until your plate sells.
  • Number plate keyword searching
  • Unique number plate adverts URLS

...and so much more.

We rebranded from to Number Plate Classifieds to make it more obvious to visitors what the website actually does as Smashing Plates was not as clear...

The Number Plate Translator is our ground-breaking and one-of-a-kind app which translates words into actual legal number plate combinations - and then searches the leading number plates dealers (including Number Plate Classifieds of course) to see if any of the combinations are available for sale.

It has been well received and continues to help thousands of people every month search for their ideal number plate combination.
