Square S plates that are already attached to your special interest vehicle can continue to be used. If these plates are cancelled or need to be replaced, a different S series plate will be issued.

Green on white and traditional retro plates may also be used on a special interest vehicle if they are already attached or have been customised.

Another option is to attach personalised plates to your special interest vehicle. Visit or call 136 356 for more information.
