New registration plate comes into effect

Ireland’s new car registration system came into effect this morning, on the back of widespread public interest.

Alan Nolan, Director General of SIMI commented on the new system: “While it is too early to tell how new car sales are doing, given that today is only the first day of sales, there certainly has been a lot of interest from the public in the new number plate. Only time will tell what impact the new plate might have on sales but we expect demand to increase when we begin to see new cars on the road.”

This new format plate will be in place each year from now on.
