Any ideas on how long it takes before I can put the plate on the car ?
You should get notification from DVLA.
What plate did you buy?
Car I'm buying needed it's reg plate changed over. It's takeing 7-10 working days.
Edit: You can go down to the post office and fill in a form to do it I believe.
Did you check to see if the plate was available from the DVLA first? Most of these private reg sites simply buy the DVLA plates and charge you more!
Yea, was gonna say. It's usually 500 quid or so from the DVLA isn't it (or at least V8 WTF and V8 LOL that i looked at were, I think. Was a while back now )
Does anyone know where I can find Suffix plates? For example..
Basically the older style number plates. I've tried looking at the DVLA website and I'm sure theres a link but I can't find it anymore!
have you looked at http://www.nationalnumbers.co.uk/?
the one i want is £500 but i think its pretty cool (cant tell in case someone else buys it )
Do not buy from anyone other than http://www.dvla-som.co.uk unless the plate you particularly want is available there.
DVLA is the cheapest and best way. Most other sites simply buy from the DVLA and then charge you more.
I know the plate I want, anyone "lend" me £90,000
from lookng at some plates of the dvla , reg transfers / new reg can do them cheaper though .....so shop about people
No they cannot, DVLA price includes the DVLA transfer fee, the other sites do not. If you buy from another site you must also pay the DVLA the transfer fee.
I bought D12 MBL . . . . . my initials are MBL . . . .
How much, £494?
Now you've got to pay the DVLA £80 assignment fee, whereas had you bought that reg from the DVLA, it would have cost you £499 including that fee.
For example, D11 MBL is still on there - DVLA want £499 inc everything, Regtransfers want £494 excluding the £80 transfer fee.
I've known some of the larger websites to list people's numbers for sale when they aren't, in the hope they can tempt the plate off the owner when an offer comes in...
They did everything for 527 - prob still got ripped of a bit, but it means that they handle everything and sort it all.
I think you also have to pay VAT on the 499 from the DVLA site . . . .
no you dont it's including EVERYTHING, 499 is all you pay
Ok, so looks like I got ripped off £27 . . . . . . so why are these companies in business . . . . why doesnt everyone buy from the DVLA direct . . . . ?
You tell me! Perhaps they dont realise the DVLA sell the plates?
