How do I buy a Private Plate?

We know finding and buying the perfect private plate can seem daunting at times understanding the whole process. For this reason we have put together some guides and information to make the whole process easy. The aim of Motoreg is to make the searching for your required personalised number plate as simple as possible.
How to buy a private plate
Check the car or vehicle's age
Because many registrations carry an 'age identifier' (this is the date when the mark was released) it is important to check the age of the vehicle receiving the personalised number plate. This is because the DVLA does not allow newer registration marks to be transferred to older vehicles meaning you cannot make an older car appear newer than it really is - so you need to be aware to choose a plate that suits the vehicle’s age.
Simple searching for your private plate for sale
Use our simple Search tool on our website that will help you find the perfect personalised number plate. Simply type in what you are looking for, be it initials, a name, a special number, keyword, anything, and our website searches through the stock of private plates for sale and gives you the best results using your preferences. You can go a step further and filter the results by lowest price and highest price first.
The price of the private number plates available
As part of your search results, we give you the price of each privte registration available under your search. As well as displaying the price of the private registration there is also an option to view more details which will list all the costs like if there is VAT to be added, the DVLA Transfer fee and the option to buy a set of actual number plates, this way you know the complete all inclusive price before making an enquiry.
Transferring the private plate
You can complete the transfer of the registration yourself, or you can choose to make the whole process even easier by having us take care of it all for you.
Secure payments taken
Once you've found the private number plate for sale that you want to buy our friendly, helpful staff can answer questions you may have regarding the different ways to pay, ensuring that the whole process is completed as smoothly as possible for you. You will also have the option to pay by debit or credit card or by bank transfer if you prefer.
Important Private plates and DVLA Information

DVLA is the government agency responsible for all regulatory matters related to the issue and display of private number plates and car registrations in the UK. The DVLA acronym means Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and its head quarters are here in Swansea from where it controls all UK private registration plates.

Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency DVLA Logo

DVLA is a registered trade mark of the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency. We liaise with the agency but Motoreg Ltd is not affiliated to the DVLA or DVLA Personalised Registrations.

All our personalised number plates for sale are British i.e. issued and controlled by the DVLA. They are only for display on vehicles registered in the UK and Northern Ireland.

In Northern Ireland the government agency responsible for issuing Northern Ireland format (commonly known as Irish) registrations was the DVA, this is an acronym meaning the Driver Vehicle Agency.

When you are ready to assign the new private registration to a vehicle, you will need to either submit your application to the DVLA or we can check it and submit it for you

Once your application has been successfully processed, simply fit the new number plates and update your insurance company.


When you have bought your cherished number plate it's very important to follow the law

As responsible cherished number plates sellers and buyers, we feel a responsibility to help our customers understand the law regarding the supply and display of a private number plate on a car or any vehicle.

To buy a set of number plates for your new cherished number plate registration, you need to provide the company who will produce your new set of cherished number plates with a V948 number plate authorisation certificate which is issued by the DVLA only after your keeper’s entitlement has been checked.

This is very important because your cherished number plates are an important identifying feature of your car or vehicle. Otherwise your car or vehicle number plates can be cloned giving a false identity to any vehicle for those who want to get involved in vehicle related crime.

This has lead to speeding fines collected in areas of the UK where car owners have never visited, due to the display of duplicate private number plates by criminals using cloned cherished number plates.

There are strict laws on how the letters and numbers on private number plates need to display. The letters and numbers must be of the correct size, style and spacing and must not use fancy fonts.

The actual physical cherished number plates to go on a car or vehicle also need to conform to strict British Standards in their materials and manufacture.

If you break this law on the manufacture and display, this leaves you open to having your ownership title to your personalised number plate withdrawn and there is also a maximum fine of £1000 that can be imposed.

On top of this when you come to have your cars or vehicle MOT, incorrectly displayed cherished number plates or reg plates will be enough to make your vehicle fail its MOT test.


If you are buying a personalised number plate as a gift as many people do there is some advice we can give you

For instance, when the transfer assignment is submitted to the DVLA, the new documents will be sent by the DVLA to the keeper of the vehicle. If this person is supposed is to be the surprised receiver of this special gift, then we advise to delay the transfer assignment until just after their special day so to not spoil the surprise.


For Pre owned cherished registration marks — your transfer options

A. Transfer to a registered vehicle now
If you already have the vehicle, we can assign your new private number plate registration within just 4 to 6 weeks subject to receiving the necessary documents from you.

The confirmation letter we send you will ask you to send your vehicle documents to us, we will require your documents within three weeks from the date of purchase.

B. Transfer to a vehicle later
As these private number plate registrations are owned by a third party, the most secure way to take possession of them is to transfer them to a vehicle straight away.

However if you do not have a vehicle, or would like to delay the transfer for some reason, this is possible but there are different processes involved which are dependent on whether the private number plate registration is currently held on a government certificate or already assigned to another vehicle.

If the private number plate registration mark is currently assigned to a vehicle we can retain it for you so it gets held on a new government holding known as a retention certificate for 10 years.

You can renew the certificate every 10 years until you want to use the private number plate.

If the private number plate registration mark is already held on a certificate the process is different.

For security reasons the DVLA retention scheme prevents the direct change of ownership of government certificates such as a V750 Certificate of Entitlement or V778 Certificate of Retention.

So in order to change ownership of the rights to a private registration currently on a certificate, we will need to assign it to a vehicle and then re-retain it onto a new government certificate, with your details as the new owner.


Replacement number plates

We can only send out the replacement number plates once we have received notification from the DVLA that your transfer has been completed successfully.

In order for us to legally supply you with your new acrylic number plates, we are required by law to see proof of identification of the purchaser. The acceptable forms of ID that we need include:

  • Driving licence
  • Passport
  • National identity card
  • Bank or building society debit or credit card statement (not online)
  • Utility bill (water, gas, or electricity) (not online), dated within the last 6 months
  • Council tax bill
  • Landline telephone bill
  • Police warrant card

As soon as we receive proof of identity, we can arrange for your new number plates to be dispatched to you.

If you did not originally order number plates from us but want to add them on after, we should be able to do this for you - please contact us as soon as possible.


When changing your vehicle

When you decide to change your vehicle in the future, you can transfer your private number plate registration over to your new one as long as your new vehicle is of a suitable age to receive the new private number, or you can retain it to a V778 Certificate of Retention. Your old vehicle will be issued with the original private number plate or a standard same age registration mark.
