Although the notion of giving a number plate as a present may appear complex if you’ve never done it before, it’s actually quite simple.

We’ll show you how to get a number plate as a present for your loved one in this blog. It will blow all of their other gifts out of the water.

How to Buy a Number Plate

Of course, you must first know how to purchase a number plate.

This is one of the most simple methods to remove mould, but here’s a step-by-step walkthrough on how to do it:

  1. Search for and select your desired number plate – Check out the National Numbers website for details. They’ll be delighted to discuss your plans and budget with you, informing you which plates are available and lead you to the best alternatives.

2.    Determine how you want to pay for the right to this registration – Credit cards, debit cards — they’re all the same. And don’t worry, we have lots of 0% financing options available with a quick application form that provides an immediate response.

3.    Purchase the physical plates during the buying process – You’ll be able to choose a set of physical plates for the automobile, including borders, typefaces, and flags. Jepson & Co is the country’s oldest plate manufacturer, having been in business since before the advent of automobiles, so they presumably know what they’re doing. The plates will be sent in an unbranded, DVLA envelope, so you’ll have something to wrap up instead of standard old papers.

4.    Transfer the registration – This is real fancy talk for transferring the registration onto a motor vehicle. We can assist you with this or, depending on the registration you’ve purchased, you may do it yourself using a simple online DVLA service. This makes for simple present giving since the person you’re buying for may put it on their car, van, motorcycle, or any other vehicle when you give them the gift.

5.    Fresh logbook – After that, you’ll have your plates and a new logbook with the updated registration will be sent by the DVLA. However, if you (or the receiver) have transferred it over the internet, you’ll receive a prompt notification when it’s safe to mount the plates.

6.    Inform your insurance company – To sum up, enjoy your plates!

So, without further ado, let’s look at a few more queries you might have while purchasing a private registration and try to answer them as best we can.

Is it possible to purchase a registration without assigning it to a vehicle?

Yes. When you acquire a number plate from us, it generally does not need to be assigned right away; if you desire, we may frequently provide you with retention papers. The vast majority of registrations can be assigned to a vehicle at your leisure. You simply follow the instructions in steps 3 and 4 from the tutorial, and we’ll still be here to help you if you have any queries, so don’t worry.

How Long Does It Take to Assign a Number Plate?

It varies.

Aside from the fact that your certificate will be with you for 1 to 5 weeks after purchase, everything else is in our hands. In general, getting it done as soon as feasible is a good idea to avoid DVLA or Royal Mail delays.

Your plates, on the other hand, typically arrive within a week, but sometimes even before your certificate.
