There are advantages and disadvantages to everything people do or decide to do. This is actually the reason why parents love to advise their children on the merits of thinking before moving. No matter how one tries to escape this, people always end up seeing it. To speak plainly, there is no way for a person to be on both sides of the road at the same time.
The Special against the Ordinary
The world is familiar with private reg plates. They know that this is something that is authorized and guaranteed by their governments as special plates. From what people know and understand about these plates, they also derived the opinion that these plates are also expensive. Truthfully, if these private reg plates were compared with the ‘ordinary’ plates, then the latter would prove to be cheaper.
It may be cheaper, but does it have the flair and the impressiveness that marks private number plates wherever these may go? Of course, it has none because these license plates are ‘ordinary’. These may be a little shiny when newly released, but there are millions of these hanging on other cars. The fact of the matter is that Private reg plates are more impressive than the ‘ordinary’ license plates. Consider this for example, there are two Rolls Royce cars rolling on the highway, one of these has special plates, while the other has the run-of-the-mill ‘ordinary’ ones. Which one of these Roll Royce cars is more impressive than the other? Which one of these two cars make their owners feel like they are special and VIP?
The great thing about the private reg plates is that this is transferable to someone else for as long as it has not been cashed out or used. This is a one-time purchase and use right for as long as the special plate exists and is renewed. Now, because this is transferable, a person is perfectly within his rights to give this to somebody else in the form of a gift. Today, there are some who give cars as gifts. What better way is there to make that gift more special than to give it with a personalized plate?
