    Ino this ain't the correct place but it concerns an S3, the car is still registered under trade, so can I put the new reg on? Or does itvhsvevto have a registered keeper rather than the yellow bit on the v5 logbook filled out?

    If you want the plate, it has to be in a registered name, not trade, many a time I have wanted a plate but it wernt worth registering the car.

    Unless you know the person well enough who you have had the car off, or who you are selling it too.. then you can have it off before or after..

    If you aint bothered about adding owners, register it to yourself, or someone, then put it back in trade.

    Cheers for the reply, really it has to stay on the trade for ins purposes

    But the option to add a owner don't really phase me do I guess it's gonna be that call! Can dvla local office do it all same day for me?

    Plus the person who I'm buying the car off is a very good friend So pretty much flexiable to do what ever, what would you recommend? Thanks

    Get her to have the plate off, takes about 5 days, logbook will come in 3/4 weeks, soon as the v5 is back, send off the trade slip. easiest way.

    If you know the previous owner, just do it with there details, a fresh logbook will come back through to here, go down the local office, so a trade policy, mot and v5. job done.
