    How much for new number plates?

    Hey im thinking of a new registration plate for my car from the DVLA, but they dont send you the plastic plates.
    Has anyone got a rough idea how much it actually costs to get the plates made? Nothing fancy just plain number plates with the reg on it.

    Cheers

    Ok thanks, i will ask around a few garages or motorstores and see if they can do them

    I have one question though, i have just sent away the V5 docs today to get the car registered on my name. Can i still buy the new reg and have it on my name or do i have to wait till the car is registered on my name?

    Thanks

    You cannot put the new registration onto the car until you have the documentation for it.

    Otherwise it would just get messy should you need to show documents if stopped by police etc.

    Remember to inform your insurance company aswell !

    Hope you did'nt pay more than £250 mark....

    That's all it costs direct from DVLA.

    Plates are a fiver each from the wee motor factors down the street from here, and that includes the screws and the wee plastic caps for the screws.
