    Transferring a personalised plate following IVA

    I already have the post IVA V5 with car correctly registered on an age-related plate. Now want to transfer the Crendon onto the plate I bought some years ago.

    Looking for comments/suggestions on how to achieve this easily, smoothly and quickly, without falling down any govt rabbit holes.

    If you have the retention document of the number you wish to assign to your vehicle (V778 ) go online to www.gov-uk/put-registration-number-vehicle and do it online. If I remember correctly, it is pretty much instant as you will have already paid fee. Remember to notify your insurance too.

    Yep, did the same with mine the day I received my new V5 for my freshly IVA’d car. Instant, online, and a new V5 delivered within a week!

    Yeah it's all meant to be very painless now - it was when I did the transfer onto the BMW.. hopefully it will be onto the Cobra, too.

    This reminds me that a friend of mine is bidding on this plate in an upcoming auction:


    I don't think he intends to space it like that, though...

    He already owns "HI I SNOG" and "FUGLY" .. (both not literally those plates, of course, but mis-spaced and mis-represented..) so I think he has no shame!

    I sent my IVA paperwork off with the certificate of entitlement for the reg on my old AK, so it was AC16 COB from day one

    Hi all,

    is there any "legal" way around the rule that a number plate can't make a car younger than it realy is? EG putting a 2010 plate on a 2000 car. I've seen a plate I fancy at a good price and one that makes sence to me but it's a 64 plate and mine will probably be a 96 (N) when it's done.

    Nope, your stuffed Graham (unless you can magic up receipts for everything and register is as new build that is)

    Surely if it's a '64 plate on a '96 car it's making the car look older so can be done. You cannot put a '96 plate on a '64 car.

    (Just re-read your post and I am now assuming by 64 plate you mean 2014 (eg. AB64CDE) and not 1964! In that case, no you can't.)
