    As I understand it, a cherished plate is always moveable (unless vehicle is unroadworthy), “real” Reg plate is always non-transferable.

    My V5 has "Date of First Registration" 1969 (Year of donor vehicle) and "Date of First Registration in UK" as 2006 (date it was registered with DVLA as a 289 after SVA)

    Thank for the response so far

    We are getting quite a mix here.

    Some clarity from the DVLA would be nice. Which is part of the reason for my quest.

    Says Non Transferable down the bottom of the front page. Its not a Q plate. The age related plated relates to the date of the donor as far as we can work out

    Does "Non Transferable" not mean you cannot put that number on another car rather than being able to put a cherished number on to your car?

    If you choose to put a cherished number on to your car, that vehicle retains the original number and if/when you transfer the cherished number to another vehicle then the original number is reassigned to the car.

    I'll have to check my V5 but when I registered mine in July I put a retained 1966 plate straight on it.
    My donor was 1987.
    It never had a 1987 age related plate as far as I know.

    Hi,

    I have placed a cherished plate onto a couple of my demo cars and then placed it onto retention when the car was sold on.
    The cars were given a random age related number.
    However I have not noticed the non transferable note until recently and only on the dateless period car.
    I just had a new registration v5c arrive today for a build and this has both new dates but no note regarding the possible transfer or not of the plate.
    It may be that all such registered cars are non transferable as mentioned above but cherished numbers can be placed onto and move from them over the ‘original’ applied number.
    It would be nice for some clarity because I would be pretty peeved to loose a cherished plate through bureaucracy.

    My Sumo was SVA'd in 2005.

    My V5C also states that the registration Mark is "non-transferable" [Special notes #1] so I don't think that it's anything new (and i agree with the previous comments that it doesn't prevent an earlier reg being allocated to the car).

    My date of first registration is 1979 and I queried this with the DVLA when I first received the V5 - I was told that it was correct procedure and not to worry about it

    My emissions are also stated at Special Notes #3
