Private Registration Plates

34 posts in this topic

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?

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.

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

Am I right in thinking I have two years to change it over? Was planning to get it sorted at the end of the month but got a lads holiday to pay for...

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.

I believe Germany doesn't allow them, although you can select the letters on it to be your initials.

I've also heard that countries like Australia and the US aren't as tight on the combination of letters and numbers as in the UK, so in theory it can say anything! That might depend on which state you're in though.

I keep looking for my perfect one, but my initials are JAG and therefore the limited few that are still available are a fortune <_<

We can't have private plates either :( Though you can have a cherished number from the Isle of Mans list. They aren't very good though as they have to contain MAN and similar. Seen a few good ones that look like Fast Man, Maniac etc

Up until this year it was about £67 for a cherished number. But once the government cottoned out to the fact they could make some money they now have them on a scale of charges, and the good ones cost thousands. Wish I had kept mine now :(

no

How about NOTAMAN?

Not quite as glamorous as my example Stoney! You need to incorporate some numbers into it too.
