The registration number format
Vehicle registration numbers are a way of identifying vehicles. The current vehicle registration number format was introduced on 1 September 2001 for all new vehicles being registered.
The first two letters (the local memory tag) tell you the office where the vehicle registration number was first issued, the two numbers are the age identifier, and the last three letters are random.
Example: SR signifies Dundee, 60 represents September 2010 and BMD are random letters.
The age identifier changes every six months, once in March and once in September.
