Hiya guys,

I've wanted my own private registration plate for ages now, and with me trying to build up my credit rating, I found one with a 0% interest rate online and I've gone for that (works out at about £30 per month).

Do most people on here have private registrations? Is it pretty straight forward to get it all changed over?

Have something to contribute?

I have my own plate , it was very easy , just brought it sent documents off and a week and a half late i got the documents , plates and tax disc. Changed it over from one car to another , that cost me 100 a year and a half ago , very simple to do.

Yep, simple to assign. When changing cars, quicker to retain the registration then assign to new car as well.

ive been looking at getting my very own personal plate myself as well. i keep checking for one that will suit me and what i need. my dad has brought one himself (probs why i want one) and his was straight forward.

even tho his insurance company charged him for changing his plates and updating there docs :unsure:

Very easy to do, just remember when you change cars (which I expect you won't do soon) there is extra charges I just paid 80 to have it transferred

The time you get to hold the licence depends on how much you pay , for example 105 pounds will hold the plate for one year , if you want to hold it longer you have to pay more.
