  • Hi William, You will need to sign & date form V317 to transfer your cherished number from your old car to your new car. You will also have to provide the correct vehicle documents; more information can be found by reading Transferring a Registration Number.

    Hello James
    I am sure you will have answered these questions many times before.I have bought another car today and will be taxed now with its own reg. My car shows my cherished number.The garage says they can organise the transfer for £80 which will take 2/3 weeks. I am passing over the V5C tomorrow.Can the garage arrange my private plate number without any paperwork from me giving permission. I am going to receive the new car in the meantime until my private plates are approved.

  • Hi Adrian, You say ‘the garage has sent the log book off’. You need to ask why they have sent your log book off. The usual procedure when you are changing cars is to transfer your private reg from your old car to your new car. This involves completing a DVLA form called a V317 and costs £80. The application is submitted to your nearest DVLA Local Office (not DVLA Swansea). As part of the application DVLA will give your old car an age-related registration as a replacement for the private plate you will be transferring to your new car. Remember it is your responsibility to notify DVLA that you are no longer the keeper of the old car (after the plate transfer is sorted).

  • Hello Jayne, Yes you can put your registration onto your new car and tax it at the same time at the DVLA Local Office in Leeds. Remember to take your motor insurance certificate or temporary cover note with you along with the cars MOT certificate (if it requires one).
