The idea of having a private registration plate had never occurred to really until my girlfriend gave one to me for my birthday. At first I found it rather strange but after actually putting on my car I don’t think I have ever felt so good in my entire life. It reads “H21 LUV” I still have that car. The thought that you can actually change your number plate brought new meaning to the term freedom of expression. Now all my cars have private plates all meaning different things or highlighting different milestones in my life.
Am not exactly a hopeless romantic but you have got to agree that what my girlfriend got me for my birthday was pretty creative and unique in a sweet way. I found myself sitting at the wheel in the car trying to figure out how I the man in the relationship hadn’t figured this out. I still didn’t know how she had managed to have the certificate wrapped just like a birthday card and the actual private registration plate made and hipped out to me.
It was weeks later that I actually found out that it was as easy as surfing the net looking at different websites that specialized in this business. I was also surprised that you could actually find someone to do it for you from your local directory or from your favorite motor magazine.
