My car already has a private number plate on it. What happens to that?
There may already be a private number plate on the vehicle, and you want to put a different one on it. You can either transfer the current private number plate to another vehicle, or apply to have it on a Retention Document (V778). This must be done at the same time – you cannot do it later. If you don’t apply to transfer the registration number at the same time, it will be lost.
DVLA fees will apply.
