    you'll probably get the cheque for £25 back in the post with a 10 year retention ticket....

    This is all very handy info to know, I currently have a plate for sale so it'll make the transfer so much easier when it's sold!!

    Just bought a bike with a private plate on it. The owner was looking at leaving the plate on the bike as it would delay the sale. However, he checked out the DVLA site and realised he could do it online just as Steppers post. He received an immediate notification confirming the transfer was complete and the 'old' number could be put back on . By the time time I picked the bike up 48hrs later he already had a new v5 back too. Quick and painless

    I don't believe its an issue as the DVLA database should recognise the numberplate succession to that vehicle.

    It's a good question that ! although to be honest the MOT 'certificate' you get now in reality is just a receipt. The VIN is registered on the MOT so there is a continuous trail. I like the way that the newer MOT receipt/record shows the history of the previous 4-5 MOTs.

    You don't need a new MOT certificate, just use the paper MOT as a reminder for when it runs out.

    Is it possible to assign a retained (V778) number to a car owned by someone else without making them a nominee first? In their guide it says -

    4. Transfer a registration number

    You can transfer your vehicle registration:

    from your vehicle to another one in your name
    to a vehicle you’re buying
    to someone else’s vehicle

    but doesn't offer explanation of whether the other person needs to be a nominee or not.

    I have a V778 and the way I read it I could simply enter the existing registration of the vehicle to which the retained number will be assigned in Section 1.

    Your name should show as the Grantee (owner) at the top of page, so you sign in Section 1 to assign number to a currently registered vehicle.

    The wording on the form suggests that DVLA don't care if you are buying a brand new vehicle, assigning reg to your own registered vehicle, or giving / selling the reg to another person for their vehicle.

    I've swapped many times and just sigh with relief when the crisp new V5 drops through the door.
    Carpe Diem!

    I finally spoke with dvla today. If the other person is not already a nominee you can't do it online.

    For the benefit of others. On the V778 put the existing car registration in section 1; grantee sign and date section 1; fill in the nominee details in section 2; grantee sign and date section 6.

    If it's a newly acquired vehicle, Fill in the new keeper section on the v5c and send both documents to dvla.
