Private Number Plates: Mainland UK to Northern Ireland:

Private Number Plates : Mainland UK to Northern Ireland How to transfer private number plates from mainland UK to N.I www.plates4less.co.uk

I’m From Northern Ireland - Can I Buy a DVLA registered Number Plate?:

I’m From Northern Ireland - Can I Buy a DVLA registered Number Plate? The answer is yes, of course! Private number plates that originate from mainland UK start out on V750 certificates of entitlement.  These certificates show a person’s rights to display a registration mark on their vehicle, provided they don’t make the car look newer than it is, and anyone from inside the UK is free to buy one (or several - they make great investments!) for themselves. However, if the receiving vehicle is registered in Northern Ireland, you will be unable to register the private number plates directly to their car . www.plates4less.co.uk

But I’m From The UK - Why Can’t My Plates Go Straight On? :

But I’m From The UK - Why Can’t My Plates Go Straight On? At the moment, assignment of private number plates is handled by two separate authorities: - The DVLA in mainland UK And - The DVA in Northern Ireland. The reason that you cannot assign mainland UK private number plates straight onto a Northern Irish vehicle is that the two authorities’ systems don’t hold the relevant data for each other’s unassigned registration marks ( i.e private number plates that have yet to go on a car).   Marks that are first issued with the DVLA aren’t in the DVA’s database to start with, and vice versa. www.plates4less.co.uk

So How Can I Put DVLA Private Number Plates Onto My Car? :

So How Can I Put DVLA Private Number Plates Onto My Car? It’s simpler than you might think ! While private number plates from the mainland can’t be transferred from certificate to Northern Irish vehicle, they can be transferred from vehicle to vehicle. This means that if you have access to a friend’s mainland registered vehicle, you can apply via the DVLA to put the private number plates on his/her car for the time being (making their car a donor vehicle of sorts), and then go through the DVA to apply to move it from their car to yours in Northern Ireland for a fee of eighty pounds. Once the private number plates are registered to your car, your friend should get their regular number plates automatically reassigned. www.plates4less.co.uk

Are There Any Rules I Need To Know Of?:

Are There Any Rules I Need To Know Of? Most private number plates from mainland UK carry age indicators in them, so when shopping around, make sure your car is new enough for them. The DVA and DVLA will not allow anyone to display plates on their car which will make it look newer than it really is. Nominee names - when buying a registration number, you will be asked for the receiving vehicle’s registered keeper’s name (i.e. the name shown in the car’s log book).  This will be for the first vehicle it goes onto.  So if you are using a friend’s car as a donor vehicle, it will need to be their name that you use. www.plates4less.co.uk
