    Lightbulb Number Plate

    Hello,

    I am after the numberplate J 120 LFE (J ROLFE).

    As the number plates with 120 in them were openly available on new cars, the only way I can get hold of this number plate is to find out who owns the car which had J 120 LFE issued on it and hope it has not yet been scrapped

    Apparently once the car has been scrapped there is no way of resurecting the number

    Does anyone have any ideas on how I can find this?

    Any help appreciated,

    Thanks

    James

    There's a link on the RAC website where you can find out what car its on. the only other way to find out the registered keeper would be through DVLA, and i doubt they'd give out that sort of information

    EDIT: Link here

    Thanks mate,

    Now know its on a 1991 Rover 414 SI which was last sold in November 2000

    Was thinking actually, when u get pulled over by the police (I used to drive a Nova SRi so this was close to a daily occurrence) They know your name and address from hitting your number plate into the system. Clearly they are not going to tell me there name and address but is there any other way to access this database?

    Even if it means not giving me any details but giving them my details with a quick explanation?

    J120 LFE is .......

    Vehicle details
    Manufacturer ROVER
    Model 414 SI Body type 4 DOOR SALOON
    Colour
    Fuel type PETROL
    Date manufactured 31 December 1991
    Number of previous owners 3
    Last owner change 03 November 2000

    I thought that you could contact DVLA and pay them a few quid and they`d give you some details, they might have stopped doing this now though.

    The Vehicle Licence web site tells me that it is also Grey in colour and hasn't been taxed since September 2004

    Unless some kid it using it to rag around a field it looks like its probably scraped...

    Thanks for the help guys

    Any one got any other ideas on how I can find the owner of this car?

    The longer I leave it the more likely its been scrapped

    If it has been scrapped is there anyway of resurecting the car to get it back off?

    Thanks

    if it had been scrapped there is defo 100% no way u can resurrect the vehicle and/or its identity.
    I was forced by the DVLA to scrap a previous car of mine that had one of my private plates on...and it was the one which was the most personal to me. Therefore its gone for ever in my case.

    As Jace has already said no way is anyone gonna give u the details, but I believe u already know this. Personally I would be seeing if a 3rd party (such as DVLA) could pass ur details onto the registered keeper (if its still on the road) - doubt this scenario too... But its really ur own hope.

    Bear in mind it would need to be MOT'd to do any plate swap. Thats the thing I don't like about having my plate on an older car - if it doesn't pass it's next MOT and costs too much to pass then the plate dies with it.

    Not a chance in hell of the police/DVLA telling you the owners details though.
