Now in its fourth year, the bi-annual license plate change inspired from the UK and applied to Ireland in 2013 is getting more successful each year: at 29.902, July 2016 sales are up 8% on July 2015, itself up 47% on July 2014 which was up 61% on July 2013. The year-to-date tally is now up 19% to 131.240 units after 7 months.
