Personalised Registrations: Changes to Transfers and Retention Fees
The DVLA have announced some rather good news regarding changes to the fees associated with Cherished Transfers and Registration Retentions on personalised registration numbers. Going forward (as of Monday 9 March 2015) vehicle owners in the UK will now only pay £80 to transfer or retain a personalised vehicle registration number (this was previously £105).
For those who aren't familiar with the jargon, a Cherished Transfer is the term given when the owner of a personalised reg transfers it over to a different car. These can also be retained for a period of time, allowing you to remove a registration number from a vehicle and hold on to it for up to 10 years.
The owner can apply for transfer or retention by completing the V317 and V62 application forms and sending them to DVLA in Swansea along with the registration certificate and a cheque for the amount of £80.
Also, as part of the changes there will no longer be a cost to the keeper to extend a certificate or add a nominee (this was previously £25).
DVLA have confirmed that if you have submitted a cheque that was not required it will be destroyed or if you submitted a cheque for too much a refund for the difference will be issued to you.
Detailed information about the changes and how to apply can be found on the following website: www.gov.uk/personalised-vehicle-registration-numbers.
Customers of Jordans can have a pair of plates produced for just £12 with a number of styles and lettering options available to choose from. All you need to do is provide proof of entitlement to the registration (simply bring in your V5C document) along with some form of ID, and we’ll make the plate for you there and then.
For more information about the registration plate services we provide contact Jordans Cars of Hull.
