Of course they do!
The letter doesn't change every year but just go through the alphabet on a continual cycle until exhausted all options and then moves on to the next. My car was registered in 2005 and begins with a C, they're now upto the Gs
If you can pick a point, it's not hard to work it out the age within a year or two, take a good look at the newest cars on the road just now and they'll likely begin with a GL. Notwithstanding the fact that old imports get new plates, which does add to confuse the senses somewhat.
Sorry didn't read all thread and realise I repeated what someone already said. Oops
