    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default Cherished number plates

    If I wanted to get the number on my other car onto a retention certificate, and be issued with a new reg number for that car and then transfer the retained number to a new car purchase (when it's made !), how do I go about it? What about tax, insurance, MOT and V5C ????

    It's all new and alien to me.

    Finally, what about costs? Any help would be appreciated.

    Usually to take a plate off and stick on retention is about £105.00, but to do a straight transfer to another car, i think its £80.00, go to the DVLA site and you can download the forms and DVAL do the rest, they will send you a new tax disc and MOT etc with the new details on it.

    Check : http://www.dvla.gov.uk/forms/onlineforms.aspx

    and the forms are:
    V317 - PDF Document (400 Kb)
    Transferring a Vehicle Registration Number

    V778/1 - PDF Document (111 Kb)
    Application to retain a Vehicle Registration Number

    One of these shoudl sort it.

    Have a read of these doc's, its all pretty straight forwrd so no need to panic.

    HTH.

    you're best of buying the plates from DVLA. they sort things out and just need one visit to your local DVLA office.

    Apply for the retention cert, your car will be issued the original reg number if it's still available.
    Retention is £105 which includes the transfere fee @ £80.00. & lasts for 12 months. Renew it for the next 12 months @ £25.
    If the retained number is going anto a previously unregistered (brand new) car, the fee IIRC is £125.00
    Just take the retention cert when you order the new car and they will transfere the number to it.

    Ste,

    Remember to allow at least a couple of weeks to do all this as the DVLA can move at a snails pace at times!

    Definitely give the retention certificate to the dealer for them to do: Then it's their problem.

    When i bought my Vectra, i said i'd do it because I thought I could get it done quicker, but because there was a delay on DVLA's part, the VX stealer threatened me that I'd need to pay for the car that they'd ordered in for me by month end if DVLA didn't get the Changeover of Cherished Reg done in time.

    It all led to a bit of bad feeling at the time, but the dealer I bought it from are one of these Low Margin/ high Turnover dealers so I got my Veccy amazingly cheap at the time compared with anything else local to me.

    The DVLA just scraped in the transfer in time!

    I own the car it is coming from and it is the original number, the car I wish to transfer it to eventually will not be new, but if the reg is on retention it sounds like it won't be a problem.

    Thanks

    The vehicle your taking the number from will be re-issued a number which relates to the vehicles year of manufacture.
    Sometimes DVLA send an inspector to check out the vehicle(s) but i've never had this happen to me. I think it's only in certain circumstances.

    Usually for dodgy ferkers, so i think you should be OK.
