    I went through this for a family member ages ago.

    If it is your car that has been written off, you have a right to have the number plate put on retention.

    However, if it is not your car and the owner has not made claim to the plate, you can't buy it. The car will need to have an MOT to have the plate removed.

    This system was put in place to stop people transfering plates off scrap cars that might have a nice plate.

    If you quick enough, you should get in touch with the owner of the car, ask them to claim the plate back and buy it off him with you as the nominee.

    Also, dont claim the road tax back until the plate is off the car - otherwise its a bl33din nightmare...

    Been there, done that!!!
