Who has a private car registration number/license plate and why did you choose it?

Do countries other than the UK have private number plate schemes?

I've got "EW D1C".

A friend had it on his works van, and I managed to acquire it from him for a very reasonable price.

It attracts a fair bit of attention from the police - but most see the funny side of it.

On the Isle of Man you can buy your own personal numberplate. Only problem being it has to end in "MN", "MAN" or similar. Nice and cheap though.

America has vanity plates. Once saw a dentist with "GUMS" as the plate.

Many country's plates are restrictive because it's either lots of numbers or the letters denote particular towns or cities.

Don't exist in Portugal. I read somewhere that the DVLA makes about £80 million a year out of personalised plates in the UK.

You imported an F reg (+/- 89) left hand drive civic to the UK? Didn't that cost more than the car was worth?

In Ontario you can buy a vanity plate for about $200 with a maximum of 8 letters/numbers. You can also choose from a large choice of symbols (teams, clubs, associations) and have 6 letters on those plates for a cost of around $260.

In Quebec you cannot buy a personalized plate.
