    Cheapest of the cheap at 280

    It will be my own personal plate rather than 1 for a particular car, so i can transfer it onto future cars

    Whilst its your personal decision and I would never expect anyone to listem to me, as you asked the question I really don't see the point of personal plates unless its on a business car advertising the company such as Pimlico Plumber's fleet of LAV 1, LOO 2 LOO, BOG 1 etc etc

    In fact, I would go so far as saying that personal plates are a little tacky and third division WAG'ish

    But that's just my view

    Nothing wrong with personal plates. If its what you want and it means something to you. We all mod our cars to what we interpret as looking good....others may think it looks pants....who cares!! I bought my first plate when I had the car new so I kept it a 58 plate but with the initials MAC. Personally I like it as it is subtle. The plates I don't like are the ones with stupid spacing and fixings to make an I into a T etc.....now thats chavvy

    I bought my personal plate way back when the prefix H was issued. This was the first time the DVLA allowed to to purchase a plate before they were issued. I had the plate a few months before I had my new Audi 90 2.3E on 1 March 1991 and been transferred to each of the 9 cars I have owned since. I don't have a middle initial so I use my wifes initial as well. D and J Robinson hence DJR.

    A while later in 1996 when my wife had her first brand new car I bought her H5 JHR (her initials) so we have a matching pair. She is now on her fourth Polo and the plate gets transferred to each new one.

    When I trade-in my car, I drive to the dealer still with my plate on the car and my new one is there waiting with exactly the same number. Strange to see two cars parked next to each other with the same number plate.

    The DVLA sourced plates are pretty good value as the transfer cost is included.
    Mine only cost 250 all in, so technically the plate stands me 180!
    Cheap as chips.
    I have some very `subtle` spacing on mine and although not really obvious it gives the desired effect and the plod have shown no interest in 3 yrs.

    I agree that you have to be carefull with wacky spacing, odd fonts, and dummy screwholes as they can make it look naff and chavvy.

    I have 3 private plates one with minor spacing for my s3 the other which is now on one of my motorbikes which was bought for an evo 7 and reads V11 GTB, gtb being my initials and my other is L333AH B, my wee girls name is leeah which is on retention at the moment. the only one I actually like now is the leeah one and want rid of the other two . to be honest the they are just a pain in the arse when it comes to selling or changing your car if doing so privately anyway.

    Go for it. I agree about the not misspacing or putting black screws in stupid places.

    I've got three. All of mine are pre 1963 so are neither prefix nor suffix - two are in the format 3 letters then 3 numbers. The S3 has the best one - 4 numbers and a single letter. It doesn't mean anything, it is just something unusual as you don't see many single letter plates on the roads these days.

    Only if there were both on the public road rather than on a dealers premises. Only the 'old' one is on the road until I drive to the dealers and only the 'new' one after that and both are registered to the same owner.

    Once I've collected the new car, the existing one gets it's number changed to one issued by the DVLA before it leaves the dealers premises.

    Yes, but you cant swap plates to new car without the V5 being changed on both, so do you goto the DVLA yourself or ask dealer to do whilst you wait, cause until the V5 is amended you cant drive the new car with new plates on until the docs are done & I know this from at least the last 3 of my cars as I had to goto Brighton DVLA office to do then & there or wait a week or 2 to be done by post, registered to the same owner is irrelevant, V5 has to be amended before the car can be driven with the different plates, so unless you drive away with a V5 for your new car with the private plate on this doc then its completely illegal.

    Basically what I do is send the necessary forms to the DVLA to place my personal number on retention. The send me a Retention Certificate which I give to the dealer for him to register the new car with my personal number. Only once have I been asked to take the xisting car to a DVLA office for the details to be checked against the V5. I also receive a certificate from the DVLA giving a new number for my existing car and a form which allows me to purchase a new set of number plates with the new number they have allocated to my existing car. This is also given to the dealer and they make up a set a plates to go on to the car when it's handed over to them. I also receive a new V5 for my existing car some days later showing the new registration which goes with the car to the dealer. The new V5 for the new car with my personal number arrives in the post some days or a week or so after I've taken delivery.

    This is the same process I have used for all nine transfers that I've done with my plate. I suppose in theory the new number should go onto my existing car as soon as I receive the details of the new number that has been allocated to it, but the DVLA do not know when those details arrive with me. It could be just the morning that the change of cars is taking place depending on the Royal Mail. My dealer has always said not to bother as they will make up the new plates and they will always certify to the DVLA, if necessary, that both cars were never on the road at the same time. They also say it is not a real problem as at the time of transfer and until I send them the part of the V5 signed by both myself and the dealer to say I've sold the car to them, I am the registered keeper of both cars.

    In the past the dealer has been to the local DVLA office to arrange the transfer over the counter, but I understand the DVLA will no longer do this and the dealer does all the registration process for the new car by a computer link to the DVLA.

    Yes it's generally cheaper to buy the number direct from the DVLA. Their price usually includes the 80 transfer as well. When I bought mine it was 230 but that was in 1991.

    I hate to rain on your parade mate, but it's not spaced correctly is it? The space between the '2' and the 'D' should be more, and the '2' has been cut down too by the look of it?

    That's correct. Have a look at the photo showing my two plates earlier in the thread and you will see what 'quattrojames' is talking about.

    Again I like personal plates, but I hate plates that have been doctored in any way. I also hate having the dealer in large lettering on the plate. Fortunately my dealer uses very small letter and only the information required by law.

    Must admit I have seen a lot worse, but if you are unfortunate to get pulled by the Police they will get you to remove it. If you later change it back again I think they even have the power to take your plate out of circulation

    That's very true. Some I've seen are ridiculous. The best ones are the ones that mean something to you without having to be modified in any way.

    This is the statement on the DVLA website...

    The police can issue fixed penalty fines for illegally displayed number plates. Offenders could face a maximum fine of 1,000 and in some cases the number plate may be withdrawn.
    Vehicles with illegally displayed number plates may fail the MOT test.

    I have a private plate so does my wife..( legally spaced out etc )

    I agree that they look awful when they are spaced illegally and black screws put here and there , numbers tweaked , you know what i am talking about.

    I am surprised that people can still get away with it , some look nothing like the actual number plate it should be.

    If it means something to you i think go for it , it's just a bit of personalisation on a car , That's what we all do on here any way.

    Although i must say that when i see some plates and people say it says this , i am convinced they read what they want to see , half the time they just look like weird made up words...

I also receive a certificate from the DVLA giving a new number for my existing car and a form which allows me to purchase a new set of number plates with the new number they have allocated to my existing car. This is also given to the dealer and they make up a set a plates to go on to the car when it's handed over to them. I also receive a new V5 for my existing car some days later showing the new registration which goes with the car to the dealer. The new V5 for the new car with my personal number arrives in the post some days or a week or so after I've taken delivery.

    This is the same process I have used for all nine transfers that I've done with my plate. I suppose in theory the new number should go onto my existing car as soon as I receive the details of the new number that has been allocated to it, but the DVLA do not know when those details arrive with me. It could be just the morning that the change of cars is taking place depending on the Royal Mail. My dealer has always said not to bother as they will make up the new plates and they will always certify to the DVLA, if necessary, that both cars were never on the road at the same time. They also say it is not a real problem as at the time of transfer and until I send them the part of the V5 signed by both myself and the dealer to say I've sold the car to them, I am the registered keeper of both cars.

    In the past the dealer has been to the local DVLA office to arrange the transfer over the counter, but I understand the DVLA will no longer do this and the dealer does all the registration process for the new car by a computer link to the DVLA.
    Yes but if you put your plate on retention, then you cant then drive your old car around or to the dealer with the private plate on as retention is where it sits in the air waiting to be allocated, so if this is the case which from your pics & info suggests, then its still illegal Dave, not being funny & couldnt give a toss tbh, but just being factual incase anyone gets the idea then gets pulled, I was warned about this by the DVLA.

    Private Plates are immense, add class to a car.

    Yes I hear what you say, but in my case I would just be driving the car to the dealers to get new number plates with the new allocated number fitted, having just received the letter telling me to do this from the DVLA the same morning. I understand this is permitted in the same way as driving a car without an MOT to an MOT station to have the inspection done. At least that would be my story if I was stopped. Very unlikely as my plates are always perfectly legal and the tax disc in the car window still shows my personal number. I don't send this back to the DVLA until after I collect my new car.
