    Random thing that i've been wondering about.

    So far we have had 02, 03, 04, 05 etc plates when the new cars come out in March, and then 52, 53, 54, 55 etc plates in September, but what happens now?

    I am presuming there be a 10 plate (which seems logical) for the next car release in March, but what happens then? We cant have a 15 in September because that then takes away that option for when its 2015.

    Does anyone know what happens now with registrations?

    I'm sure this has been asked in this forum so many times, but the sequence will continue, so it'll be 10 in March and 60 in September.

    So then they will have to come up with a new system if we are still using car registrations when it gets to the year 2051?

    A registration shuffle seems to happen every 20-30 years anyway..

    They will do exactly what they've done previously - reverse it.

    So it'll be
