## How can I calculate a car’s age?

Calculating a car’s age is important when assessing the quality of a car and how much insurance you are going to need to pay for it.

To identify the age of a car, just look at the third and fourth digits of the number plate. In March, the digits will always be the same as the last two digits of the year. In September, the digits will be the same as the last two digits of the year plus 50.

For example, a number plate of a London car registered in March 2019 would read LA19. The number plate of a London car registered in September 2019, would read LA69.
