New style number plates don't go up in value

How much is my number plate worth? A very common question. There is a general expectation that all personal number plates, once bought, will increase in value. Not true. And it applies especially to the new style registration numbers (sometimes referred to as current style). Why? It's simple - supply and demand. Most people, when they think of buying a personal number plate, will opt for either a 3-letter version of their name (like Sue or Gav). Or their initials.

Is it about manipulating the C to make a SUE number plate? We've all seen the use of screws and black tape to change number plates to make a name or word. It's illegal, of course - and the police are beginning to get tough on it.
