    Question Private Plates - Northern Ireland - Help!

    Okay,

    can anyone help me with the following problem. I understand the usual DVLA routes to buying and registering a cherished plate. A friend of mine who lives in Northen Ireland - recently bought a private plate for his Mrs (UK type). He asked me to help out by making me the Nominee on the V750W (Cert of Entitlement). He said that the numbers need to be registered on a UK car first then re transfered over to her car in NI, some loophole or something. If this is the case - do I just register the plate on my car then a day later get it transfered accross to her car?

    Help Please!

    NI is the UK...I'm confused. Why don't you reg it on yours then swap with her reg, then you get the NI reg eg. BIG 6789

    No The Plate is a UK Style eg: (L16 CBM). Apparently you cannot directly replace the SZI 6678 style with a UK number on retention. The plate has to be on a UK car first then swapped accross to a NI vehicle. Any NI members please advise.

    Regards, Matt

    Yes it has to be registered in mainland Uk first then transfered to N.ireland. Seems stupid but thats how they do it.

    the best way to do it is get your friend to register his car at your address in the uk then he can put the plate stright onto his car as it is regestered in the uk.leave it regestered at your address for a load of weeks then just transfer the adress back to his in n.ireland. the dvla ask you to do it the other way as you normally have to pay them an extra £80 in transfer fee's from one car to another.doing it this way means it is quicker and you don't need to transfer the plate onto your car.
    got an email of dvla the other day to say that things COULD be changing as they are suppose to be combining dvla in swansea with dvlni in coleraine, but until then think this is the best way.
    hope this helps

    no bother matt,just do as if your mate has moved in with you and just as the relivent information comes in send it over to him in n.ireland,then just change the address again when the dust settles,it also means your mate can put his reg on straight away.its a loop hole in dvla's system to do it the way they suggest takes far longer and they get an extra £80 out of you plus you lose you reg.
    hope you and your mate get it sorted

    That way will have insurance implications regarding his 'kept address'

    not really as long as your insurance is not up at the time of transfer you insurance agreement is between you and your insurance company, you have your car insured at the address in n.ireland so this will still be the kept address with the insurance, if anything happens then that is were the car is likely to be.the regestration is with the goverment not the insurance company.its only for a few weeks too.
