    What they said is correct. There's plenty of number plate agencies over here that'll sort it out for you, there's one in Bangor that does it. They normally have something registered in England that they can swap the reg on to and then move it to the N. Ireland car afterwards.

    Im using one at the minute for my sister in law. Eagle Registrations in Portadown, it will cost you about £180 for the transfer to complete.

    Yeah, they screw us over here at the moment. Though I think when they close Coleraine totally and move everything to Swansea this little con will no longer be an issue.
