    new S3 need to put private registration on - best way??

    Hi
    as some of you have seen I have just bought my first Audi S3, I have a private plate on retention and wish to put it on the car when it arrives (tomorrow). The retention runs out on the 12th may (nothing like cutting things fine! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]) So I would like to reg the car not only in my name but also on the plate in one go, can anyone tell me how to do it. Do I need all the V5 form and take it to the local DVLA office or can i just use the bit I am supposed to keep and let the previous owner send her bit off (or do i send the retention doc off with the previous owners bit?). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    anyone know how to do this??
    sorry i know this is a generic post but i know people read this forum!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img]
    thanks

    Best to call them and ask mate, they're pretty helpful normally.

    Take the new keepers part of the document and the retention doc to the dvla local office with the mot and tax serial number. Fill out the correct form and they will process the doc and have it all ready to collect within 7 working days.

    I was at my local office on friday doing a similar thing!

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks, this makes sense. I was worried I was going to have to ask the old owner to trust me with their part. Cheers.

    You can get a extension on your rentention certificate. Just phone the DVLA,.

    extension is 25 per year, damn insurance only just done that online so we will see if it arrives in time, I was going tomorrow to do it but it looks like it will have to wait

    You wont need to take the insurance doc with you at all

    If you phone them now they may be able to send the doc out with the new plate as long as you tell them the date your putting it on the car.

    All done, you only need

    Retention doc
    V5
    MOT
    Tax disk

    As long as everything is filled out correctly you walk away with a new tax disk with you new reg on it and proof (if required) to get a plate made up. You are then free to put your lovely private plate on the car and drive sedately off!!

    Yipeeeee

    Thanks for the help guys
