Queensland's most classic and clever personalised plates

QUEENSLAND'S best, most classic and funniest personalised number plates for 2014 have been revealed.

Personalised Plates Queensland has named their favourite plate combinations for 2014 in a series of category awards

Last year, the popularity of personalised plates continued to grow with Queenslanders embracing the release of new plate types including 3D, Brushed Metal, Carbon Fibre, Metal Grill, Iconic Queensland, Prestige Checker, Camo and Classic Plates, the most affordable plates to ever hit the market.

The Gold Coast remains the personalised plate capital of Queensland with five of its suburbs making the top 12 list.

Top of the ladder for the second year in a row is Southport, followed by Buderim, Surfers Paradise, Caboolture and Forest Lake.

Other top selling regions include Logan Beaudesert, Fitzroy, South Brisbane, with Ipswich rounding off the top five.

The number plates range in price from $195 for a basic monochrome to $5000 for a two character ID plate. 

There are now over 700,000 personalised plates on Queensland roads with more people than ever using their bumper bars to express humour, individuality, creativity and self-expression.
