FAQ’s before purchase
Is this a legal UK registration which I can assign to my vehicle?
The vehicle registration advertised on this listing is a legal UK registration which can be assigned to your vehicle for you OR the certificate can be updated with your details and sent to you with instructions for carrying out the assignment to your vehicle yourself. Vehicle registrations can be kept on certificate for up to 10 years and can be extended if required.
Is this registration suitable for my vehicle?
Most vehicle registrations have a year identifier. This means the registration itself was first issued on a specific date and can only be assigned to vehicles of the same age or newer. The item specifics box on this eBay listing shows an “applicable date” which is the issue date of this specific registration. Dateless registrations, which can be assigned to any vehicle of any age will display “no date”.
What do I need to do and what details will be required from me?
Once purchase is made and payment has been processed, you will be asked for information which is all obtainable from your vehicles V5C logbook.
We will only require your full name and address If you would prefer the registration certificate sent to you rather than for us to assign the registration to your vehicle.
How long does the assignment process take?
If you currently own the vehicle and have the most recent copy of the V5C logbook available, most assignments will be completed within 3-4 working days.
It is possible to purchase the vehicle registration even If you do not have the most recent copy of your V5C logbook. If you would prefer us to complete the assignment to your vehicle, we are happy to wait for the V5C logbook to arrive with you.
Where do I get physical number plates to fit to the vehicle?
We can supply standard aluminium MetaTek (£29.95) or handmade 4D aluminium MetaTek (£49.95) number plates. MetaTek number plates are the best plates available in our opinion and are available with flags and borders, to suit every type of vehicle. They are 100% UK legal, lightweight, durable and 99% recyclable. All number plates are made in the UK and tracked with Fedex next day delivery service.
Please contact us to add a set to your vehicle registration purchase.
How do I know when the vehicle registration is assigned and when do I fit number plates?
You will be advised through eBay messages and emailed when the assignment is complete. Number plates can be fitted as soon as assignment is confirmed or within 72 hours legally. The vehicle insurance policy should also be updated at this point.
I am still unsure what I am doing. Can you complete the whole process for me?
Yes. We will message you after purchase to confirm your details and requirements.
