    If I've put in a total loss non-fault claim and the other party has accepted full liability, will their insurer pay to have my personalised plates on retention? Or will I have to pursue it theough the courts (seems a little pointless for £105)?

    Ah yeah. You need to tell them before you accept the offer so that they keep it for DVLA inspection. You can also claim from the thris party's insurance for the cost of transfer providing you actually bought the plate separatly of the car. (I remebered that a friend from Uni worked in insurance for a while, it's not what you know...)
