    Scrapped car reg Q:

    Is it possible to transfer a registration plate from a car once its been scrapped?

    I saw my first car in the scrap yard a few weeks ago, and would like to transfer the reg onto my current car, as it holds a lot of sentimental value to me.

    Any help would be great!

    No can do afaik. To transfer the reg, the car must hold a valid MOT etc, so if its scrapped your out of luck.
    Reg number is lost forever!

    I've checked & they say they've already registered it as a scrap... Would it be possible to perhaps buy it back & inform the DVLA it was a mistake... or make out I still own the car & the one in the yard is a ringer or summot like that?....

    I'm getting desperate

    I've sent them an email... lets hope they can do something.

    Thanks for the help/comments guys!

    The reg belongs to my first car, that was bought for me by my grandma, who passed away earlier this week. I've long contemplated tracking down the owner & asking nicely to buy the reg.. then a few weeks ago, the car was spotted in the local scrap yard. Looks like I may be too late now

    ah well.
