It means motorists can snap up a range of historical number plate designs after the UK left the European Union.
Independent number plate firm National numbers has been selling range of Brexit themed designs including “EU 20 OUT” and “EU20 BRX”.
DVLA personalised number plates will also be available for the new “20” issue with private designs starting from just £250.
However, motorists can still purchase a brand new vehicle with the new 2020 number plate designs at a budget cost if they take precautions while purchasing.
Buying a pre-registered vehicle is one way motorists could save on costs but still secure a brand new vehicle with a 2020 number plate.
