    tell insurance right away ....and the dvla will give you a new tax disc and send your v5(log book off) and you can put your new plates on ..

    If you goto the DVLA offices they will give you a new tax disc plus a certificate to get plates made up.
    Once you have plates made you can then transfer them onto car with new tax disc

    once you have been to the dvla there is a small period of time where both plates are usable , ask at the office when you do it .

    a window of time for you to change plates over ,

    once you do the change , immediately inform the insurance company .

    they might charge you £ 35 for the pleasure of sending you out a new certificate of insurance with your new plate on .

    I went to DVLA and got new tax disc then put plates on, then I rang insurance up and told them it shouldn't cost you any more and they will change it over on their DB and you can drive it straight away.

    Log book will take about 2 weeks to come back though

    you dont have to tell the isurance straight away,if you go to ya local dvla
    office they will assign ya private plate to ya car straight away,they will issue
    you with a new tax disc,mot certificate if applies and a plate authorisation
    certificate and they then give you 10 days to change ya reg over from the
    origional to ya private plate,i drove away from the dvla office with my
    origional plates on till i fitted me private plates when i got back home.


    if you already have ya private plates with you at the same time then you
    can fit them straight away,its more dificult if a private plate is getting taken
    off a car as you have a long wait for paperwork etc.

    ===============================

    the few days WITHOUT telling the insurance company ,

    is only if you keep the old number plate on , in that period of time .

    otherwise there may be some issues , if you put the other plates on without informing them ,

    you'd be insured for the old plates , not the new P10TSN plate .
