Assigning a Number

It used to be more difficult to assign your personal registration number to a vehicle, with paperwork having to be submitted to the local DVLA office or the DVLA head quarters in Swansea.

These days the process is straight forward and can generally be done online. It’s as straight forward as taxing your vehicle. That’s in the vast majority of cases, at least, DVLA still require a small percentage of assignments to be processed by submitting paperwork to their offices in Swansea.

In order to assign the a registration the latest V5 registration document has to be in the name of the recipient of the cherished registration number plates.

Private Registration Numbers as a Gif

A lot of our customers are buying registration numbers for their friends or family, private registration numbers are very popular gifts and have the potential to last a lifetime. In most cases we can supply a cherished registration number on a DVLA issued certificate valid for up to ten years. Thats perfect for securing in order to gift in the future.

Many customers have also gifted the physical number plates which we can also supply as registered number plate supplies with the DVLA. The plates can be wrapped in the relevant gift wrapping, be it Christmas, Birthday, Anniversary etc. Then the certificate inserted in the gift card.

We always on hand to assist when the number is ready to be assigned if you or the recipient needs any help. One important thing to bear in mind is can’t use a personalised registration number in order to make a vehicle appear newer than it actually is i.e. you can’t assign a 2021 registration number on a vehicle first registered in 2010. You can however uses an older registration on a newer vehicle.
