    Default Number plate retention for new car

    Well i have decided to change my Mk5 Astra for a BMW 318se,
    issue i have is my number plate, can i go with all of my documents and the owner of the Bmw to a local DVLA office and get everything changed there and then?
    i would put it on retention but this takes up to 4 weeks before i get any documents back. If DVLA can sort everything its better for me and the other seller.
    Cheers

    No this can't be done . You will have to take both log books to the dvla they will change the reg from one to the other and it takes 4 weeks. If you have the plate on retention take the car to dvla and they will put plate on car there and then but it will take 4 weeks for them to issue retention cert. .

    What you have described firstly is our plan take both cars with all docs and get everything changed. Is that possible

    Previous owner of my Veccy had a private plate on it. He took his docs to DVLA on Monday morning and he received tax disc, logbook etc in the mail on Fri morning
