Of course we think so, but we’re a little biased! Private registrations are the ultimate personalisation option for your car, and some can present great investment opportunities too!

Yes, motorcycles, Quad Bikes & mopeds can participate freely in the registration transfer scheme.

Yes, you can! When you buy a number plate from us it usually does not need to be assigned to the vehicle straight away. You can set a Nominee or Change a Nominee even after you have purchased.

One of the MOST IMPORTANT Rules regarding personalised / Cherished registrations is that you CANNOT make a vehicle look newer than it is.

As the transfer fee is paid upfront when acquiring a certificate, there is no further charge to assign the registration to a vehicle i.e it’s ‘free’ to apply online or by post.

No. Most personalised number plates can be supplied on a certificate. Once you have the certificate, you will have until the certificate’s expiry date (usually 10 years from when you buy it) to transfer the personalised number plate to a vehicle of your choice.

You can purchase a private registration following the link below off our website

You can buy a registration within 60 seconds once you have found on that suits you. once you buy it we get the retention certificate posted out to you within 5-10 working days

The prices for private / cherished number plates can start from £249, and can go up to tens of thousands of pounds – in rare cases, even hundreds of thousands.

How do personalised number plates work? Personalised number plates are a way of making your car more individual or Personalised to you or a loved one. You’ll usual find you pay extra money to have your own choice of numbers and letters on the registration – usually a phrase, slogan or initials that mean something to you. You may be a lucky or unique individual to find a perfect plates for £249

If you are buying a number plate and you want it transferred onto your vehicle straight away then you will need to provide the following documents:

  • The original of the vehicle’s most recent V5C Registration Certificate, sometimes known as the logbook (in the purchasers name or nominees name)
  • Details of current MOT test certification (if applicable). We do not need your actual MOT certificate.
  • Details of your current road TAX

If you are buying a number plate and would like to put it on a vehicle at some later date:

No documents are required initially. You will need the documents mentioned above when you do come to transfer your number plate onto your intended vehicle.

You have 2 options:

  1. You may choose to pay the Department for Transport retention fee (currently £80) and retain the number. This means that the number will be transferred onto a certificate that you can later use to put that number plate onto another vehicle.


  1. You can choose not to keep the old number. If you do not retain the number on a certificate as described above, or transfer it to another vehicle, then it will be lost when you receive your amended V5C showing your new registration. When you receive your new V5C showing the new registration, you must remove the old number plates and display the new number.
