New 67 Plates

audi car keys

Thursday last week saw the launch of the 67 Plate! Can you believe it’s that time already?!


We love the arrival of the new plates and all the excitement that goes with it, have you spotted any on the road yet? No? The why not be the one driving in a new car instead?


There are hundreds of options here are Short Term Leasing, with makes and model to suit all tastes and budgets, the choice of petrol, diesel, hybrid or fully electric and prices starting from as little as £249 + VAT per calendar month.


There are set to be 300 67 Plates withdrawn by the DVLA after they were considered too ‘offensive’. When the numbers 67 are placed into certain letter combinations it is considered that the number 6 can look like the letter ‘G’ or an ‘S’ and the number 7 can be read as a ‘T’ or an ‘L’.


Earlier this year, back in March, the 17 plate was introduced. March saw the biggest month in the industry for car registrations, with 562,337 new cars registered that month – an 8.4% rise.


The total amount for the first quarter of 2017 of new car registrations was up by a total of 6.2%, totalling 820,016 cars registered in January, February and March combined.


March 2017 saw more diesel cars registered than any other month whilst April saw the introduction of the new Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) charges from 1 April 2017. The VED laws rules all new cars, except for those with zero emissions, to be subject to an annual flat rate of £140.


Another trend in 2017 saw that drivers are looking to invest in cars that have the latest low-emission technology. March alone saw a 31% rise in registrations of alternatively fuelled vehicles (AFV’s).
