Important Registration and vehicle age Can I use this registration on my vehicle?

Most registration plates in the
UK have a date identifying digit or numbers. The applicable date shown within
the item specifics section on this listing, is the age of this registration.
You can?t make your vehicle look newer than it is by putting a registration
plate onto it. Please check you can use this registration on your vehicle
before purchase. Examples of how to date the registration plate are given
below. Please message if you need your dates checked before purchase.

Example 1 Prefix AXXX XXX (first issued Aug 1983 to Jul 1984) This registration is from 1983 and is suitable for vehicles which are
from 1983 or newer. You can?t put an AXXX XXX registration on to any vehicle
which is older than 1983 because it would make the vehicle look newer than it

Example 2 Current Style XX10 XXX (first issued Mar
2010 to Aug 2010) This registration is from 2010 and is suitable for vehicles
which are from 2010 or newer. You can?t put an XX10 XXX registration on to any
vehicle which is older than 2010 because it would make the vehicle look newer
than it is.

Dateless registrations are from
before 1963 and they don?t have any date identifiers. Dateless registrations
can be used on any vehicle of any age.


Can I keep the registration
plate if I change my vehicle, or could I sell it on to someone else?

Yes. Once purchased and it?s
assigned to your vehicle, it is yours forever if you want. You can swap it on
to all your future vehicles (vehicle age depending). In the event you wish to
sell your current vehicle before buying another vehicle, you can remove the
registration and hold it on a retention certificate (10 years max) until you
have the new vehicle to assign it to.

To sell it to someone else you
simply remove it from your vehicle on to a retention certificate and then sell
the retention certificate to the buyer.


What do you need from me to do
the assignment for me and how long will it take?

Your vehicles V5C logbook has
information on it which we will require in order that the assignment can be
completed for you. If due to be sent, a free set of number plates will be sent
out to you in the mail first and should arrive with you before assignment is
completed. These will be sent by signed, next day courier service and will
require a signature upon arrival.

Assuming you have the most
recent copy of your vehicles V5C logbook to hand and you have received any
physical plates which are due in the mail, assignment can then be completed.

Standard processing time for all
purchases is 3 to 5 working days. Please understand that this is not a guarantee.
It is an estimate based on our experience and knowledge within this industry
since 2010.


What happens once the
registration is assigned to my vehicle?

Once assignment to your vehicle
has been completed, confirmation of this will be sent to you by email. You will
have 72 hours to fix a set of plates on to your vehicle and inform your insurer
about the change. That?s it all sorted. A new V5C logbook will be issued out to
you and should arrive in the mail within 7 to 10 days following assignment. You
should then dispose of your old V5c logbook.

The registration is now held on
your vehicle and you are forever the legal owner of it.


Can you send me the registration
certificate rather than assigning it to my vehicle for me?

Yes of course. The certificate
can be sent to you in the mail instead of assigning it to your vehicle. If it
is for someone other than yourself then we can also change the registration
certificate to reflect their details before we post it on to you.

A great way to give a
registration as a gift is to have a free set of plates sent out from us along
with the registration certificate, which will have the recipient?s details on
it. Remember, all fees are included so they won?t have to pay a penny themselves.
