To Know All About Vehicle Number Plates: Call DVLA at 0844 241 0166


There are several things that make an individual distinct from others like features, education and physical traits. But, what gives a vehicle an entirely different, separate and unique identity is the vehicle registration plate, the mandatory alphanumeric combination which is used to display the registration mark of a vehicle in the United Kingdom. It is mandatory for the motor vehicles that are driven on the public roads to display these vehicle registration plates. If you would like to have any assistance on these number plates, contact the DVLA contact number 0844 241 0166.

Private Number Plates

A private number plate is one that displays the vehicle’s registration number on the plate. Buying a personalised registration for the vehicle’s number plates can be done online from the DVLA or participating in an auction. The numbers that are available for sale and the costs for the same can be checked online on the DVLA website. For assistance, dial the contact number of DVLA 0844 241 01661.

The numbers that are auctioned for the number plates are some exclusive registration numbers that are auctioned about 6 times a year. Their reserve prices start from £130. Individuals can bid for the same online, in person, by phone or in writing. To resolve your queries, dial DVLA contact number 08442415511.

An individual can also opt to buy a personalised registration number from a dealer or privately. To do this, it is mandatory for an individual to receive the V750 certificate of entitlement, a certificate for the new personalised registrations bought from the DVLA or V778 certificate of retention, a document issued when the personalised registration is taken off a vehicle. Dial DVLA contact number 0844 241 0166 for assistance.

Buying a Personalized Number

Buying a personalised number from the DVLA implies that an individual is buying the right to assign the number to a vehicle. This vehicle can be registered in the name of the person buying the right or in the name of someone else (‘the nominee’).

To get a personalised number, an individual needs to buy a personalised number from the DVLA Personalised Registrations, assign the registration number to the vehicle and get the personalised number plate ready. It is possible to renew the certificate for a further 10 years. Get in touch with the representatives available at DVLA contact number 08442415511.

Changing the Number Plates

An individual can take off the registration number from his vehicle either to transfer it to another vehicle or keep it with oneself to use in future. Be it any purpose, it requires a complete process to be followed. To initiate this process, an individual requires:

• The 11-digit document reference number from the latest V5C vehicle registration certificate (logbook)
• A valid credit or debit card

It is mandatory to ensure that the vehicle is registered with the DVLA, taxed or have a SORN (Statutory Off Road Notification) in place within the last 5 years and is also available for inspection.

The registration numbers that begins with a ‘Q’ cannot be retained by an individual under any circumstance. For any further help, contact DVLA contact number at 0844 241 0166.

One can also apply the same by physically filling the forms and sending the same to the DVLA office. For any further guidance or assistance on adding, changing or transferring the number plates, contact the DVLA customer care number 0844 241 0166.
