How to assign a private number plate online
Adding a private number plate to your car is a simple process using the dvla’s online form. here's what you need to know..
Adding a private number plate to your car is a popular way to make it stand out from the crowd.
The DVLA’s online tool for assigning a private plate is simple and quick to use, once you understand the jargon.
Our guide explains just how easily you can add this finishing touch to your car.
Which documents do I need to assign a number plate?
Before using the DVLA online tool via the Gov.UK website, you will need the following:
- A V778 Retention Document – issued if a private number plate has previously been used on another car OR
- A V750 Certificate of Entitlement – issued for a brand new unused private number plate
One of these documents should be given to you when you buy a private plate, or place an existing number plate onto retention.
You will also need:
- The current registration of the car you want to add the private number plate to
- The 11-digit document reference number from the V5C (logbook) of the car you want to add the number plate to
- The postcode of the registered keeper of the car, as shown on the V5C
This should allow you to complete all the relevant sections of the online form.
How much does it cost to assign a number plate?
Assigning a private number plate online is a free process. However, taking a private number plate off a vehicle (putting it onto retention) does incur a charge of £80.
In order to assign a private number plate to a new car, it needs to be placed on retention first. Retention rights last for up to 10 years.
How easy is it to assign a number plate online?
The process of assigning a private plate is very straightforward, providing you have the correct documents to hand. Be sure to check the eligibility requirements before starting the process.
Using the Gov.UK website, you will be prompted to enter the relevant reference numbers and details.
The online tool is only available from 7am to 7pm, plus there is also a Welsh language version.
How quick is the DVLA online form?
Unless there are any additional checks flagged up, the private number plate will be assigned to your car instantly. This will include updating relevant records for VED (road tax), too.
It means that as soon as you submit your request online, the number plate for your car will be changed.
Should you provide the DVLA with your email address, an Electronic Number Plate Authorisation Certificate (eV948 or eV948/2) will be sent to you immediately.
The registered keeper of the car will also receive a new V5C logbook , which should be delivered within a few days.
How do I get new number plates made?
Such an instant change means you need to be prepared to replace the physical number plates on your car before you drive it.
If you have had the private plate assigned to another car before, you may still have physical plates. If so, you can simply replace the old plates from your car with these.
Should you need new number plates made from scratch, you can use the eV948 or eV948/2 sent to you by email. This is typically only valid for a few days, so be ready to go and get new plates made soon.
You should use a registered number plate provider to ensure your new plates meet the correct legal standards. Registered providers will need to see proof of your identity, along with proof of your entitlement to the number plate. Check with your chosen provider which documents they accept in advance.
Can I still use paper forms to assign a number plate?
The DVLA will still accept submissions to assign a number plate by post, using the V750 or V778 form. You will also need to send the vehicle’s V5C (logbook) or green ‘new keeper’ slip with a completed V62 form.
Submitting documents by post is likely to take longer than assigning a number plate online.
Can I assign a number plate to a financed or leased car?
Finance providers for cars bought via Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) or Personal Contract Hire (PCH) may have rules around adding a private plate. However, most should allow it.
Your finance documents will specify any particular rules. You will need to contact your finance provider once a plate has been assigned.
Cars supplied on a lease deal will require permission from the lease provider before a number plate can be assigned. As the lease company is the registered keeper, you will need to liaise with them to have the plate added. Finance providers may charge an administration fee for this process.
You will need to put your private plate onto retention before your lease deal ends. This should be done around eight weeks before returning your car.
Who should I tell when I assign a number plate?
Assigning a private number plate to your car also requires you to inform others of the change.
Your car insurance provider should be the first contact you make, ensuring your policy is updated. Many insurance companies will allow you to notify them of the change online, or you may need to telephone them. Some insurance companies will charge an administration fee to cover the change.
Make sure you also update car park passes or parking season tickets with your car’s new number plate.

How To Assign a Private Number Plate Online
With so many cars on the road, private number plates are quickly becoming one of the most effective ways to distinguish and personalise cars in the UK. Private number plates are stylish and on-trend. However, many of you may be wondering just how in the world you can assign a new number plate to your cherished car.
This article will explain to you how to assign a private number plate online, and you’ll be happy to find that the procedure is quite simple.
Eligibility for Assigning a Private Number Plate Online
Before starting the number plate assignment process online, it’s important to understand the requirements and eligibility. This will allow you to determine whether your car qualifies for a personalized number plate .
One of the following is required in order to give a vehicle a private number plate:
- a V750 certificate of entitlement
- a V778 retention document or online reference number
The properly registered keeper information, such as name and address, must be displayed on the V5C Registration Certificate for the vehicle obtaining your personalised plate. Wait until you obtain the entire V5C if you’ve recently purchased the vehicle and aren’t the registered keeper yet.
For your vehicle to be assigned a number plate online, your car must:
- Be registered with DVLA
- Be able to move on its own
- Possess the necessary MOT or HGV (heavy goods vehicle) test certificate
- Be available for inspection anytime
- Have been continually subject to taxation or a SORN for the last five years
- Be currently taxed or have a SORN in effect. If the vehicle has been off road for more than five years, the vehicle must also have an MOT certificate
- Have an up-to-date MOT certificate, even if it’s usually exempt due to being a historic or classic vehicle
Apply To Assign a Number Plate to Your Car
Once you’ve confirmed that your car qualifies for a new private number plate, you can proceed with the online application for a number plate assignment. The GOV.UK website is where you should go to begin the process of assigning a number plate. Then, search for “ Assign a private number to a vehicle .” This page will also provide you with the requirements and eligibility information to make sure you’re on the right track. The page will present you with the “ Assign a number online ” button which you can click to start the process of assigning a new private number plate to your car.
You must complete the appropriate fields on the DVLA online form about both you and your vehicle. After that, you’ll get a confirmation email with an eV948 number plate authorisation certificate attached. Without having to wait for the replacement V5C (log book) to be mailed, this can be utilised to purchase new number plates.
Take note that if the registration is held on a current V778 document or a current V750 certificate that has not expired, you are not required to pay a charge to the DVLA when you attach a number plate to a vehicle. In addition, it’s important to know that the DVLA Online Registration Transfers Service is only open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM UK standard time.
What Happens if Your Online Application for a Private Number Plate Assignment Is Unsuccessful?
Although online is the easiest and most convenient way to assign a number plate to your car, not every request for a personalised number plate can be handled online. In some circumstances, you might need to post your papers and requirements to the DVLA.
Here are some examples that your online application for a private number plate assignment is unsuccessful:
- If you receive a message indicating that “We need to check into your application further owing to the vehicle’s licence history,” you will need to post your application.
- If you receive a notice stating that “This registration number cannot be assigned,” find the right phone number, email, or postal address to contact DVLA.
Transfer a Number Plate From One Car to Another
If your personalised plate is already mounted on another vehicle and you want to transfer it to a new car you bought, the procedure takes a little longer and requires processing in two more steps. You’ll need to visit the GOV.UK website to apply for transferring a number plate from one car to another. The process will be similar to assigning a new number plate, which will be asking you to fill out all the information about you and your car. Then, you must complete Section B of the V317 form to inform the authorities that your registration number plate will be removed.
You can choose from several alternatives on the form regarding what should happen to the number once it is removed, such as moving a private number plate from one car to another. Once you receive a confirmation email from DVLA, you can now move the number plate from another car to your car. Otherwise, you’ll be contacted by the DVLA to have your car inspected before you can display the number plate on your new car.
If you’re sending in your application by post and your car doesn’t require an inspection, the number plate can be taken off within two weeks. The DVLA must receive the following:
- V317 “transfer or retain a vehicle registration number” form
- The vehicle’s log book or the new owner’s supplement with a completed V62 “application for a vehicle registration certificate V5C”
As soon as the number plate is removed, you’ll need to assign it, allowing you to start the process of switching personalised number plates to a new car.
If your car is eligible and meets the DVLA’s requirements, you can easily apply online to get a new number plate assigned to your car or transfer an existing private number plate to a different car. It’s best to always stay in the know with GOV.UK website requirements and updates, and always be informed of UK number plate laws so that you can successfully submit an online application for private number plates.

How to buy and transfer private number plates
Everything you need to know about buying and transferring private number plates....
BMW 7 Series
Mazda cx-30, new tesla model 3.
Private or personalised number plates are popular with people who want to make their car look extra special.
There’s more to it than simply buying a set of plates and sticking them on the car, though, as you’re legally required to register as the owner of the plate and assign it to the vehicle. You also have to tell the DVLA if you sell your car with the plates, transfer them to another vehicle or just stop using them.
Here’s everything you need to know about buying, owning and transferring private number plates.
Buying private number plates
Owners who want to make their car stand out can buy a private number from the DVLA or from a dealer. The DVLA sells private plates at auctions, which happen at different locations across the UK about five times a year.
You can find out when the next auction will be and see a list of number plates up for sale and their prices at the organisation’s personalised registrations website .
Once you’ve bought them, the DVLA will issue you with a V750 certificate, which proves that you own the plates and have the right to attach them to your vehicle.
You’ll still need to apply to assign the plates to your car, though. Dealers can help you with this, but if you’re doing it yourself, the car must be registered to you first. You can make the application via the DVLA’s website or by writing to them.
As soon as the DVLA has approved the application, you’ll need to fit the plates to the car (at this point, you can’t legally drive it on public roads without them) and you’ll need to tell your insurance company.
You’ll be sent a new V5C document acknowledging the new plates, but it’s a good idea to hang onto the originals, as you’ll need to refit them if you sell the car but keep hold of the private ones.
Private plates can be fitted to most ordinary cars, but the rules state that the car must be registered with DVLA, be able to move under its own power, either have or eventually need an MoT certificate and, for older models, have been taxed or had a SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) in place continuously for the past five years.
Transferring private number plates to a different car
If you’re buying a new car and want to transfer your private plates to it then you’ll need to apply to take them off your existing car first.
This is a similar to assigning the plates to a car – you can do it via the DVLA’s website or by writing to them. You’ll have to pay £80 and you’ll need the car’s V5C registration certificate handy.
Once you’ve done this, the car’s original registration number is automatically reassigned, and you’ll need to fit the old number plates before it can be driven on public roads. As before, you’ll be sent a new V5C document, detailing the car’s original registration number, a V778 ‘retention’ document – which proves the private plates still belong to you and that you can use them later – and a reference number.
At this point, you can apply to transfer the plates to a different car using the aforementioned reference number. This is exactly the same as applying to put the plates on a new car, and again, you can do it on the DVLA’s website or by writing to them.
Selling your car with private number plates
If you want to sell your car with its private number plates – or just sell the plates on their own – then you’ll need to assign them to the buyer.
To do this, head to the DVLA’s website and fill out the Assign a number online form, or send your V778 or V750 form to the DVLA in the post with sections one and two filled in and the V5C document of the vehicle in question.
It’s quite common for owners to sell private number plates independently of a car via specialist dealers or online. If you’re doing the latter, then make sure you don’t share a picture of the V750 or V778 documents, because someone else could use the information to assign the number plates to another vehicle.
Full details about buying and transferring private number plates are listed on the DVLA’s website .

HOW TO ASSIGN A PRIVATE NUMBER PLATE TO A VEHICLE
Published by Number Plate Clinic
May 20, 2021
After purchasing a car, the next port of call will be how to transfer a personalized number to it. Getting a private number plate might be one of the things you have admired about cars for a long time and now that your car purchase has been sorted, you won’t have to go through a tedious process to get it done. It is a straightforward process that can be completed via post or online.
You can purchase a new number plate for your car from a private company or an individual, so long as you meet all requirements. That is, as long as you have the correct documentation, even without bringing them along with you, you will get a private number plate for your vehicle.
The documents that come along with a successful number plate purchase include your retention document (V778), your Certificate of Entitlement (V750), and an online reference number. All of this will prove that you own the number plate.
How to apply to assign a private number plate
The vehicle to assign a number plate must be registered to you. That’s when you can begin the process of transferring the number plate to you which can be done via post or online. Most number plate companies will make a number plate transfer for you free of charge especially when you are available in person. But if you purchase online intending to keep or assign, you can request the V750 or V778 certificate for easy registration which can be completed at home.
The fastest way to assign a number to your vehicle or transfer a registered plate to another car in this era is to go online. You can complete the process in less than ten minutes whether your plate is registered to another vehicle or held on a Certificate of Entitlement (V750) or Retention Document (V778).
Often, you are not required to pay any fees but your documentation must be in order including a valid V778 document, or a V750 certificate that hasn’t expired. And if you have just purchased your vehicle and are not the registered keeper, make sure you have the complete up-to-date V5C logbook.
You will be notified with a number plate authorization certificate (eV958) via email by the DVLA once the application has been accepted. You can then proceed to fit your plates into your vehicle as soon as possible. If you haven’t got a number plate yet, you can do so after you’ve received your new logbook (V5C), number plate authorization certificate (eV958) or use your V750/V778 certificate at a DVLA approved number plate supplier. In the case of insurance, notify your insurance company immediately about the change to avoid a mix-up.
How to assign a private number plate by post?
Not everyone has access to or can use the internet, it might even boil down to preferences, either way, and you can present your paperwork to the DVLA by post. It is worth noting that this can take more time to process. Sometimes, it might be requested that you deliver by post due to incomplete information or error during registration.
We have everything you need to find you your perfect private reg!
Were you curious how to purchase a private number plate or thinking about purchasing one? If you’re reading this, the answer is very likely yes! Whether for your own usage or as a present for a loved one, a private number plate is a great way to make whatever car it’s allocated to stand out while also adding a personal touch. Fortunately, we offer a large assortment of customised registrations and private regs accessible in a variety of styles and character combinations.
Of course, every car gets its own registration plates when it is manufactured, but these plates typically have little to no meaning to the vehicle’s owner and have no monetary worth. This is one of the many reasons why people come to us on a daily basis in search of customised registrations and why so many individuals have personalised automobile number plates. There’s something for everyone in our database, with over 50,000,000 distinct private plates to pick from; if you’ve come to our website today searching for private plates for sale, we’re certain you’ll be able to discover the right private reg for you.
Cherished plates is our fancy term for a Private Number Plate!
This number plate screams high end and is one of the most highly sought number plate these days!
Why you may ask? Because this is truly ELITE standard of plate that we can customise to your liking
YES – this is available in standard 2D printed plate option, 3D plate option and 4D plate option
How long does it take to assign a private number plate?
After registering to assign a private number plate to your vehicle, the V5C logbook you will receive can take up to six weeks before arrival. However, you can start using your number plate on arrival; you don’t have to wait another set of weeks before using it.
How to transfer a registration number from one car to another and how much it costs
You will have to pass through two stages of processing if your private plate is in situ on another vehicle. To remove the existing personalized number plate, you simply have to put it on retention. Furthermore, to still have ownership of the plate, you need to fill out a V317 form (section B) after removal. This is to allow you to choose from the array of options presented to you on what to do with it and to also notify the authorities.
You get to pay a one-off fee of £80 for transfer from one vehicle to the other. If you apply online, it can be done immediately if there’s no inspection needed. After application, use the reference number you’ll get to proceed. And if you are removing the number plate via post, it can take up to two weeks to get it done.
The documents to be posted to the DVLA must include, V317 “transfer or retain a vehicle registration number” form, your vehicle’s logbook (V5C) or the new keeper’s supplement with a completed V62 “application for a vehicle registration certificate V5C” and an £80 fee. Once done, you can go one to assign your car the personalized number plate of your choice. In any case, efficiency is all that matters.
What happens if you want to give a personalized number plate as a gift?
Gifting a personalized number plate is not as stressful as envisaged. The process is meant to complement your gesture and that’s what it does. It’s a similar process to buying your personalized number plate. If you are buying by yourself, you don’t need any vehicle documents. All you need to do is to transfer registration which can be done by the receiver in his leisure time.
After choosing your perfect reg plate, you will be issued a certificate with it. The certificate will be in your name as the “purchaser” and the gift receivers name as the “nominee”.
The plate delivery can be done on request to either you or the gift receiver’s address. However, you can delay sending it for a year free of charge. It will be kept tidily for you. But after a year, the DVLA will charge you as high as £25 for renewal.
Buy your number plates at numberplateclinic . We have an extensive collection of plate styles, design, and sizes.
Assigning a number plate to your car can be a bit confusing, but don’t worry! we will provides you with all the information you need to get it done right.
If you’re looking to assign a number plate to your car, it’s important to understand the process and requirements. Our guide will walk you through the steps, including how to choose a personalized plate, what documents you’ll need, and how to complete the registration process.
Complete the Necessary Paperwork and Pay the Fees. Once you have chosen your desired number plate and checked its availability, it’s time to complete the necessary paperwork and pay the fees. You will need to fill out a V317 form, which can be obtained from the DVLA website or your local post office. This form will require you to provide your personal details, vehicle information, and the details of the number plate you wish to assign. You will also need to pay a fee, which varies depending on the type of plate you choose.
Once you have completed the form and paid the fee, you can submit it to the DVLA for processing. It’s important to note that if you are assigning a number plate to a new vehicle, you will need to provide proof of ownership and registration for that vehicle. If you are assigning a number plate to an existing vehicle, you will need to provide the vehicle’s registration certificate (V5C) and a valid MOT certificate.
Once the DVLA has processed your application, they will send you a new registration certificate with your assigned number plate. It’s important to keep this certificate safe, as it serves as proof of ownership for your number plate. With these steps completed, you can now proudly display your personalised number plate on your vehicle.

How To Assign a Personal Number Plate To a Vehicle
If you have recently bought a new car, you may want to treat yourself to a brand-new personalised number plate . But you might be wondering how on earth you can transfer a new number plate to your vehicle? You will be pleased to know that the process for doing this is fairly straightforward and can be completed via post or even online.
You can purchase private number plates either on a Retention Certificate or transfer directly to a vehicle, so if you currently have your registration on a Certificate of Entitlement or Retention Certificate, read on to find out exactly how to assign a private number plate to your car .
Contents of this article include the following:
How to assign a private number plate online, how to assign a private number plate by post, how long does it take to assign a private number plate.
- How to transfer a registration number from one car to another?
- How does it work if I want to give a personalised number plate as a gift?
When it comes to purchasing a new number plate for your car, you can buy a private number plate from a private company or individual. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to bring any documents with you – you only need to have the correct documentation to get a number plate made once you are ready to assign the private number plate to your vehicle.
Once the plate has been successfully bought, you will have one of the following:
- Your retention document (V778)
- Your Certificate of Entitlement (V750)
- An online reference number
Either one of these will prove that your number plate is owned by you.
It is worth bearing it mind that you cannot use a private number plate on your car that dupes people into thinking the vehicle is newer than it is – for instance, using an “18” registration number on a 2008 registered vehicle. In addition, you are unable to assign a number starting with “Q” or “NIQ” or put a private plate on a “Q” registered vehicle. Dateless registrations are able to go on to vehicles of any age.
1. How to apply to assign a number plate to your car?
When it comes to assigning a number plate to a car, the vehicle must be registered to you. Then you can begin the process of transferring the number plate to your vehicle – either online or via post.
If you go into a company and purchase a personalised number plate in the flesh, most will transfer the number to your vehicle for you – free of charge. However, if you purchase a plate online, or want to keep or assign the number plate yourself, ask the company for a V750 or V778 certificate so you can complete the process at home. But how do you go about putting a private plate on a new car? We’ve got you covered:
You are not required to pay a fee to do this, but you must ensure all your documentation is in order. This includes having a valid V778 document, or a V750 certificate that hasn’t expired.
Bear in mind that if you have recently bought the vehicle and are not the registered keeper, you must wait until you have the complete up-to-date V5C log book.
Once the application has been accepted by the DVLA, you will receive a confirmation email with a number plate authorisation certificate (eV958). If you already have your plates, make sure they are fitted as soon as possible. But remember, before driving with your new plates, you must tell your insurance company that your registration number has been changed, otherwise you will not be insured.
However, if you need to have your new plates made up, you can go ahead once you have received your new log book (V5C) or using your V750/V778 certificate at a DVLA approved number plate supplier . You can also use the number plate authorisation certificate (eV958) as confirmation too.
If you do not have access to the internet, you can also submit your paperwork to the DVLA by post, but this can take considerably longer. In some cases, sending the documents by post is necessary as you may get a message stating the following:
- This registration number cannot be assigned” or;
- We need to look into your application further due to the vehicle’s licensing history”
You must send your application and the appropriate documents to: DVLA Personalised Registrations, Swansea, SA99 1DS
After you assign a private number plate to your car, you will be sent a new log book in the post – otherwise known as a V5C – which can take up to 4 to 6 weeks to arrive. But don’t worry, you don’t have to wait over a month to use your plates; you can use your new plates straight away, once your application has been approved.

If your private plate is in situ on another vehicle, the process is slightly longer and must be processed in two simple stages. You might be wondering “how to remove a personalised number plate?” – to do this, you must put the plate on retention (online or via post).
To keep your registration number plate once you remove it, you are required to fill out a V317 form (section B) to notify the authorities that the plate will be removed. The form will give you a range of options for what you want to happen to the number once it’s removed, such as transfer a private plate from one car to another.
The process of removing a number plate requires you to pay a one-off fee of £80. If you are transferring number plates to a new car, you will need the vehicle’s log book (V5C) handy. If you apply online, the personalised number will be removed immediately (if your vehicle does not need an inspection). As soon as you’ve applied to remove your plate, use the reference number you get after you apply.
However, if you are completing the application by post, the number plate will be removed within two weeks if your vehicle doesn’t need an inspection. You must send the following to the DVLA:
- V317 "transfer or retain a vehicle registration number" form
- Your vehicle’s log book (V5C) or the new keeper’s supplement with a completed V62 “application for a vehicle registration certificate V5C”
- £80 fee
Once it has been removed, the next step is to assign the number plate, which allows you to begin the process of changing personalised number plates to a new car.
To find out how to do this, read the “ How to apply to assign a number plate to your car ” section of this article.

3. What happens if I want to give a personalised number plate as a gift?
If you would like to gift a personalised number plate , it is much easier than you may think. The process is similar to if you would do if you were purchasing a personalised number plate of your own.
When it comes to purchasing a personalised number plate, like if you were choosing for yourself, you don’t need any vehicle documents. These are only required for the transfer of the registration which can be completed by the gift receiver at a later date. After you have picked the perfect reg plate, the personalised plate will be added to a certificate which will have your name as the “purchase” and the gift receivers name as the “nominee”.
You can request to have the plate delivered to an address – either your own or the receivers. But if you are not ready to gift the plate so early, you can keep a hold of the number plate for a year, free of charge. After one year, you will be charged £25 by the DVLA to renew it.

A Guide to Gifting, Assigning or Selling a Private Number Plate
There are some that don't give a second thought to their car's registration number. To them, it's just a random combination of letters and numbers. To others, a number plate is a way to express individuality . Personalised Plates can be used to reflect things like a driver's name, profession, or hobbies.
It could be possible that you have a combination of letters and numbers that another person wants or maybe you're tired of yours and want to sell it to get another one. Here is a guide to selling a private number plate and how to assign it to another person.
1. Finding out How Much Your Plate is Worth
If you decide on selling a private number plate, then chances are you're probably going to contact a dealer to get a quote.
Most dealers can give you a quote online and others will have to post it to you, but it will work pretty much the same. For some automated online systems, sometimes they won't recognise the significance a plate has. If that happens, you shouldn't get angry, just contact the dealer to explain.
The quote you receive will be the money that comes back to you once a buyer for the plate is found. It's a pretty simple process that you should do before jumping in and selling your plate. It's good to know if the price will be worth the hassle.
2. Selling Your Private Number
You can use a private number to either sell your plate yourself or go through a dealer. Just make sure that you don't scan or share a photograph of the V750 or V778. This will leave an opening for someone other than the buyer to use it and put the private number on another vehicle.
After you find a buyer you will need to assign your number to their vehicle yourself. That sounds like it might be annoying but it's actually a pretty simple process. If you want the power to get everything done placed in your hands then you might want to go this route.
Going Through a Dealer
Most dealers will find a buyer, arrange the payment, and assign the number to the buyer's vehicle for you. It's a pretty convenient process.
Many dealers actually won't even charge you to sell your plate through their website unless you sign up for a premium package. Once it's listed on the website the buyer will pay you, pay commission for the dealer, and the price for the transfer.
This option is good if you just want to post your number up and then forget about it until there's money in your hand. It might be a bad option if you were wanting a little more control in the matter.
3. What Happens When a Buyer Has Found Your Number Plate
If a buyer is found and a deal is reached, then you will get a written confirmation about the procedure.
The dealer will ask you for your V5C registration Certificate (log book). If your registration is on a certificate, your V778 (Retention Certificate) or your V750 (Certificate of Entitlement). On top of one of these, you will also be asked for the authorisation to administer the certificate.
The dealer should always be holding cleared funds from the buyer before proceeding with the transfer and will clearly state when you should receive the payment. The dealer will also check and submit all relevant documents to DVLA. Please keep in mind that a reputable dealer like ourselves will explain the entire process to you.
4. Assigning Your Number to Someone Else
You can put your private number on someone else's vehicle via online or through post. Either way, the DVLA will send you a replacement logbook for the vehicle but with a new private number shown on it.
To assign your private number online, all you have to do is get details from the other vehicle's log book (V5C), and your V778, or V750. After you have that, just plug in the information accordingly.
If you want to send it by post then you need to send the DLVA a little bit of paperwork.
They will need your V778 or V750 form- Fill out sections 1 and 2 and sign it. They will also need the V5C of the vehicle you want to put the private number on. The address for the DLVA can be found on these forms.
5. What To Do If You're in a Hurry To Sell
If you're desperate in selling a private number plate in a hurry then there is a possible option for you. Keep in mind that it's probably the one that will bring you the least amount of money.
You can contact a dealer and ask if they would be interested in buying it into stock for quick cash.
Also, if you're sitting on a really rare plate that you don't want to sell yet then a pawn loan might be another option for you. You'll be able to pawn your number plate and then get it back once you're able to pay the loan off.
All You Need to Know About Selling a Private Number Plate
This is all you need to know about selling a private number plate. You can go through a dealer or sell it yourself. A dealer makes things a little easier because they do everything for you. If you have the right paperwork you can sell right away and make some pretty quick cash once a buyer is found.

The expert elaborated on why he believes more businesses are choosing private plates. He said:
- Improve vehicle branding and recognition
“Marketeers are always seeking out new opportunities. A number plate can be seen as advertising space. A well-chosen plate can be really funny, distinctive and memorable.”
- Generate online content
“When a brand is establishing an online presence, it can be difficult to think of new and engaging content. An attention-grabbing plate can handle that, we see ‘Toilet humour’ on number plates for plumbers and ‘fetching’ plates for dog walkers.”
- Fleet vehicle management
“Easy to remember number plates can provide a great way to differentiate between identical vehicles. ”
- No maintenance investment opportunity for portfolios
“Compared to other investment opportunities, well-chosen plates are low-cost/ low-effort and can be fairly liquid assets if chosen wisely.”
- Disguise the age of a vehicle
“We sell some low priced plates specifically for this purpose, called Cover Plates. These are usually low-priced and can be in sequence. Any private plate, even ones that are very personalised, can hide your vehicle’s age.”
VRM Swansea have been offering exceptional service to clients looking for private number plates since 1997. The recent development of the Plates4Business Hub is the natural next step towards helping companies with their needs and they look forward to adding additional functionality soon.

How do I purchase a personalised registration as a gift for somebody else?
When you purchase a personalised registration, we will send you a V750 Certificate of Entitlement, which you will need to assign the registration to a vehicle. If you are purchasing it as a gift, set the account up in your name and address. When making the purchase, you can add a nominee, this should be the person who is or will be the registered keeper of the vehicle it's going to be assigned to.
Once the registration is assigned to a vehicle, the entitlement is transferred to the registered keeper of that vehicle as shown on the V5C Registration Certificate.
Will I receive the actual number plates when I buy a registration?
DVLA does not provide the actual number plates when you make a purchase. We will send you a certificate of entitlement (V750) which you will then need to use to get number plates made with a number plate supplier. You can find your nearest supplier using https://www.gov.uk/number-plate-supplier

TfL has dished out faulty Ulez fines over car number plate mix-up
It has taken £400 from our auto-pay account but won’t accept it isn’t our car
We realised our car registration plate had been cloned after we received parking and speeding fines. Police confirmed in writing the offending car was not ours. We contested the fines, but our auto-pay account with Transport for London (TfL) had already been debited by £400 in Ulez [ultra-low emission zone] penalties. I cancelled auto-pay, and we have now received a demand for a further £200 from debt collectors. TfL refuses to accept it is not our car. C and FC, London
AW of Northampton is in a similar predicament. She received Ulez fines even though she had never driven to the capital. Photos attached to the fines show a number plate one digit different to her own and each time she appeals, the fines are cancelled. Then new ones arrive. “This,” she laments, “could go on forever.”
TfL tolds me that despite “rigorous checks” before a penalty was issued, it had failed to spot a “bolt” in the number plate which caused a D to be mistaken for a B. It apologised and placed a marker on the account. And it also finally accepted C and FC were not liable. “We apologise for any distress caused,” it said, promising a “full” refund.
