It's still not too late to buy a registration for Christmas if you order from Primo Registrations this weekend.

We are still offering our priority urgent Christmas Delivery which means we can get the number plates made up and delivered direct to your door via Royal Mail Special Delivery on the 23rd as long as you order before midday on Monday. Below is some of our most frequently asked questions about buying for a Christmas present which may help you.


Q: Can I buy now and give on a Birthday / Christmas?

A: Yes you can. Our registrations are normally valid for a period of 12 months from the date of purchase, and can be assigned to a vehicle any time during this time period. It doesn't matter if it is going onto a vehicle next week or in nine months time, the price and the process that we follow is exactly the same at the time of ordering. You will only need to pay the DOT transfer fee of £80 once, at the time of purchase, and won't have to pay again when it goes onto the vehicle.


Q: I've left it to the last minute - what can I get to give quickly!?

A: Don't worry we get this a lot. Buying a personal registration makes an ideal gift. If you need something to give quickly we can supply you with a personalised gift certifcate with your chosen registration on it. This will be sent via email to you so all you need to do is print it out and give it as your present.


Q: Can you supply the registration on a retention certificate?

A: On most registrations we can do this, but it's best to check with us on the telephone. The certificate would be valid for 12 months and can be assigned to a vehicle anytime during this time frame.


Q: If I choose your Fully Managed Transfer Service do I have to get it transferred to the car straight away?

A: Our Fully Managed Transfer Service is valid for 12 months, so we can arrange the transfer onto the vehicle at any time during this time frame.


Q: What will I get if I buy now?

A: We offer two options - our Fully Managed Transfer Service or our self managed transfer service. If you choose our Fully Managed Transfer Service we send you out a pack for you to return several documents back to us in the postage paid envelope. It will normally take us 5-15 working days for us to transfer the registration onto the vehicle, so this can be done prior to the special day, or after if you would prefer. If you choose the self managed transfer service you would get your certificate in around 5-7 working days and then you would need to handle the legal transfer of the registration anytime within the 12 months period. If you don't want to spoil the surprise we can even arrange delivery to a different address.


Q: Can I reserve a registration and pay nearer Christmas?

A: All registrations need to be paid in full when ordering. We do not offer credit facilities.


Q. Can I arrange the transfer to be complete on a specific day?

A. You cannot specify a day on which the transfer completes. It normally takes us 5-15 working days to complete a transfer from receipt of the papers from you - as soon as we receive them from you we will submit them for processing. Therefore, if you want the transfer to be completed closer to a specific date we would recommend you send them closer to the time.
