If you do not want to use your private number anymore you can apply to take it off your vehicle. You can keep the number (put it ‘on retention’) to use later.
You’ll get a V778 retention document proving you still have the right to use the number.
Selling a private number
You can also sell your private number if you do not want to use it anymore.
If you’re selling your private number online, do not share a scan or photograph of the V750 or V778 document. Someone other than the buyer might use it to put the private number on another vehicle.
Transfer a private number
To transfer a private number from one vehicle to another, you need to:
- Take it off the vehicle you’re transferring it from.
- Assign it to the vehicle you’re transferring it to.
You can also do this by post using form V317.

Fit Your Plates
Please note: Concours plates will require the physical original documentary evidence to confirm identity and entitlement to the number plates before we can process a number plate order.
We DO NOT sell vehicle registrations. You have to already own the vehicle license registration number with paperwork.
To order we ask that provide a copy of a V5 Vehicle Registration Document and Driving Licence and you can process and order. We will then manufacture in advance the plates ready for collection where you must show the original documents.
We will not supply any number plate that does not conform to the legal format i.e. mis-spaced to look like a name of an individual, using non-standard fonts or colours. We do not allow a slogan or message to be printed anywhere on the number plate.
