  • Where's My Car From?

    Numberplate two letter area code system.

    In the now redundant system, the numberplate contained a group of three letters at the end. The second and third letters denote the location of first registration.

    For example:

    A234 UYU

    The second and third letters denote the location of first registration:

    A234 UYU

    'YU' = London (Central)

    On suffix registered cars it works in the following way. For example:

    CCW 925Y

    CCW 925Y

    'CW' = Preston
