4.  The donor vehicle must be able to qualify for a cherished transfer. The donor undertakes to provide Primo Registrations with necessary vehicle documents when requested. Documents should be supplied immediately to facilitate a speedy transfer but in any event no later than 21 working days from the date they were first requested.

5.  It is the responsibility of the donor to inform Primo Registrations in writing if the registration mark is no longer available for sale. The donor must make it known if he/she wishes to withdraw the registration mark from sale, or if the vehicle or the registration mark is sold or stolen before it is sold by Primo Registrations (see 2 for cancellation options).

6.  The agreement is deemed to be entered into at Primo Registration's premises.

7.  Outright Cash purchases. Primo Registrations may consider an outright cash purchase for the registration mark. Usually the outright purchase price is less than the price agreed for an agency-based sale. 

8.  Disclaimer. Primo Registrations will not accept liability for any losses incurred by the donor arising from delays caused by the slow arrival of documents from the buyer or the failure of the buyer to conclude the transaction.

9.  You Must Check whether the registration document states that the registration mark is non-transferable. If it does, then the registration mark cannot be transferred or retained. Subsequently the registration mark does not comply with these terms and conditions.

10.  Please also ensure that the following conditions for the transfer and retention schemes can be complied with. These conditions are as follows:

Vehicles must be available for inspection. The inspection helps to verify entitlement to the registration mark being transferred / retained. Both the donor (the vehicle giving up the registration mark) and the recipient (the vehicle receiving the registration mark) may be called for inspection.

Vehicles must be subject to MOT / HGV test. Non-testable vehicles such as agricultural tractors and milk floats, for example, are outside the scope of the schemes. Only testable vehicles can participate in transfers and retentions and valid test certificates must be sent with applications.

11.  Replacement registration document(s) showing the changed registration mark(s) will be sent out from the Department For Transport to the keeper(s).
