Personalised number plates are a great memorable gift for a loved one. If you’re looking for a great gift this Christmas, a personalised number plate is an excellent idea for a motor lover. Here’s some things you need to know before buying a personalised plate!

GB Registration Plates

DVLA Need to Know

To get your hands on a personalised plate you have to visit the DVLA personalised plate website where registrations are auctioned off. These auctions are either Traditional – whereby the most sought after plates are sold, or Times auctions – auctions that are held 3 to 4 times a year. For more available registration plates, you can simply select “buy now” and purchase your personalised plate.
If you are buying the personalised plate as a gift, you will need to be registered as the Purchases of the registration, and whoever is receiving the gift will be registered as the Nominee.

Your Vehicle Requirements

• The vehicle you are buying the personalised plate for needs to be the right age for the registration, as there may be restrictions to what registrations can go on certain cars.
• The car needs to be registered in the UK or in the name of a UK nominee.
• The vehicle getting the plate needs to be taxed.
• The car should have an updated MOT certificate or Good Vehicle Test certificate.

Making the Purchase

The purchase process for a personalised plate is very simple as, if it is available a single click can lead you to owning the perfect motoring gift. Whilst prices are non-negotiable, there are no extra costs, so the price you see online will be the price you pay!

A Long Term Gift

Not only can your loved ones start driving around with their new personal touch, but they can continue to do so for years to come. Once you tell your car insurers of the registration change, you’re good to go. And if in the future the Nominee wants to change cars, they can transfer their personal plate to another vehicle for £80, with the only rule that it must not be older than their current car.

So when you’re thinking of the perfect gift this Christmas, remember how easy and well cherished a personalised plate will be!
