I've been told if you get a Private Number Plate the numbers of owners goes up by one on the log book,

Does any body know if this is true

Shouldn't make any difference as the owners details have not changed - bit like if you move house. Although if you don't complete the V5 correctly when you move home you can add another owner to the record so anything is possible in these days of brain dead data entry staff.

This seems to ring a bell with me. My sister had to get her numberplate personalised as the one she'd been given was a bit rude and the saleman wouldn't budge. I'm sure on her documents she was going to be the second owner but because it was a new car it would be registered under the new plate instead. I'll double check tonight.

Mine was registered with 58reg and then registered with private plate - I will hunt out my log book later and check for you.

Mine's the same--registered on a 58 plate then transferred to a private plate--log book reads one owner as it should.

whoever told you that was talking out of their bottom, my plate has been moved from two of my previous cars so far and the number of owners is the same when the v5c is updated.

if you get personlised plates on your car, what happens if you sell it later?

absolute nonsence!

The ownership of the car doesnt change!

The owner of the numberplate (i.e. the buyer of the plate) must be the same owner as the car though. Or the buyer of the numberplate can "alow" another person to use that plate on their car.

For example, the Fiesta is in MY name but the numberplate is in my DAD's name as he brought it. But when you fill in the form there is a "nominee's" section, which my name is on, so i can legally use the plate.

The number of owners for your car defo wont go up!



If you sell the car you can have the personal plate removed and the origional one is put back onto it. This is the case with my corsa which had a privateplate on, but now the plate has been p[ut on retention ready for the fiesta, and the origional plate put back onto the corsa. Please note though that it can take up to 10 weeks for the whole process to be completed, so probably best to do it all at least 10 weeks before you sell, as otherwise you may not have the logbook etc for the car you want to selL!

You either sell the plate with the car or just get an ordinary plate and transfer your personal one onto your next car - hence the reason not to go for a car specific plate unless you leave it on the car (i.e. F13STA)

I was thinking more in terms of what plate do you put on the car you sell, i thought i read somewhere that when you register your private plate on the car then the old one becomes invalid or scrapped. So if you decide to sell and want to keep your private plate for your next vehicle then what do you sell the vehicle with?

That's what a lot of people have said. But my corsa had a private plate and has now got its ORIGIONAL plate back one. It was only private for a few months tho, but its defo the same plate.

I can't make up my mind if I want to get a personal plate for mine once the 59 plate becomes the 'old' registration
