original number plate transfer/sale? - rich66
Hi all
I wonder if someone can clarify the situation with transferring registration plates. I've been through all the DVLA documentation and it would seem this is possible.

Is it the case that someone can sell and transfer the number plate from their car if that number plate was the original one given to the car (i.e. it was never purchased by anyone under any cherished plates service or similar)?

So for example, supposing my car just happens to have been registered as AB04 SBC could I sell the plate to someone with the intials SBC?

Cheers

You can sell it to anyone or a company that deals in no plates or agree for a company to sell it on commision for you (provided they are interested).
You could put it on a retension certificate.
The first co I contacted for my old no plate was not interested but the second co bought it.

Provided it is not a number issued by the DVLA as a replacement then it should be OK.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. That's exactly what I wanted to know.
