    Private Plate

    Can anyone tell me the format for swapping private plates, I know it costs £80 to exchange it from one vehicle to another, but do you have to pay to put the old reg back on the car?

    You will need a V317 form, your logbook, MOT (if applicable) & £80.
    You will also require an insurance certificate with the new vehicel details, you are also better to hand in the insurance scheduele to show that the insurance is for the old car as they can sometimes be picky.

    The transfer will take around 10-14days depending on how busy the local office is. 99% of the time the car origional registration will be re-assigned, although not always the case.

    Depends who you are selling it to, the DVLA advise not to sell the car until the transfer has gone through. Personally depending on the buyer Id sell it, just add onto the reciept that the private plate is not included.

    Unless you put the old number "on retention", it may have been re-allocated - if it has then you'll get a different age-related number issued.

    Very rare and unusual for the old number to be re-allocated to a car, personally have never seen that happen to date.
