How to sell my private number plate
Do you own your number plate?
This may sound obvious but there are a couple of things required to legally sell a number plate. Double check that your paperwork does not include the phrase 'non-transferable' if you have it to hand. If those words are not mentioned on your documents then you are ok to proceed. Next, you need to ensure you can answer 'yes' to one of the following:
- Is the vehicle registered under your first and last name?
- Are you the official purchaser or grantee and you either have a Certificate of Retention (V778) or a Certificate of Entitlement (V750)?
If you have these then you can legally sell your number plate.
How we estimate a valuation of a number plate
We believe a number plate valuation is dependent on these things:
The supply and availability of similar registrations.
Something that affects this is future or known DVLA number plate releases.
The DVLA regularly release new sequences of plates for sale to the public, by being aware of these we can give an accurate current day valuation by allowing for how these may affect things.
The type of plate affects the valuation as well, whether it’s a Dateless number plate, a Suffix, Prefix or a New Style number plate.
The look of the plate hugely affects the value, even some numbers alter how much a number plate will be wanted, like number 1 will always be highly sought after.
There are certain numbers that may be associated with cars for instance 786 for the Ferrari 786, 911 for the Porsche 911.
Numbers that can be look like a letter, for instance 5 is like an S and 1 is like an I or L, the addition of this letter on a number plate could make the plate read like a word which can be very valuable.
Letters however are usually the biggest factor in a number plate valuation. Many number plates are wanted by buyers because they match initials or short names and some sets of initials and names are more common than others.
Letters reflecting a word like a dog type LAB can suddenly appear to be popular from nowhere, you can suddenly have a number plate that is worth more if it reflects something currently popular.
A value is now attached to a number plate because of its history and who owned it before. Plates owned by famous people before can add value to it.
Owners of classic, veteran, vintage or post vintage cars will often seek plates that reflect the age of their car.
