How do I assign a private number plate to my car

So you’ve purchased a new registration mark from Primo Registrations? Congrats! A personalised reg is a great investment, and a stylish addition to any vehicle. Although you’re probably ready and raring to get your new number plates on your car, there are a few things you need to do first to ensure your new registration plate is legally assigned to your vehicle. If you do not follow these steps you will be breaking the law and will not be covered for insurance, tax or MOT, so it’s essential that you transfer your registration mark legally before you display your plates. 


Let us Assign the Private Number Plate for you

You can choose to do this yourself via the DVLA, or for just £19.99 you can choose our hassle free transfer service, and let us handle the legal stuff for you, so you can just sit back, relax, and wait for our email and text letting you you know your plates are ready to go on your vehicle. 

If you choose our transfer service, once you’ve placed your order we’ll send you out a very simple transfer pack, which includes a couple of documents you’ll need you to sign in order to get your registration transferred. Once you’ve completed the documentation, just pop it back in the postage paid envelope along with your V5c logbook, and we’ll handle the rest. We’ll take care of the complete legal transfer of the registration, including the reissue of the vehicle log book, the change over of tax, and the change over of the MOT if the vehicle is over three years old.

Providing there are no further complications with the DVLA, within around 1-15 working days, your transfer will be complete, and we’ll let you know when its time to get your brand new reg onto your vehicle. It’s that easy. 


What Happens to my current Number Plate?

Unless you pay for the DVLA to retain your current number plate, it will be made void, but will usually be reissued back to the vehicle when you take your new number plates off in the future.


So why not purchase your new registration through Primo? And let us give you the peace of mind that all the legal stuff is managed by us, leaving you ready to drive away in style, stress free.
