    Default Private plates

    I am thinking of putting a plate on my car,but as i live in n.ireland it would cost me approx an extra £250 to get a uk plate on my car as the dvlni and the dvla are two different bodies.I was talking to a mate the other night and he said that later this year the dvla(in swansea) is taking over and the dvlni is closed down,so if that is the case if i hold out till this happens i will nit have to pay an extra £250,does anyone know if this is true or how could i find out?

    Only suggestion is to ring the DVLA/DVLNi and ask them as they will know for sure

    Is true unfortunately, I got stung by that cost me about £250/£300 to get sorted out. I bought the plate myself but went through eagle registrations who sorted the whole thing out for me.

    I thought so too!! Makes no sense at all! The engilish plates have to be first registered on a vehicle with a mainland uk address then has to be put back on retention then a fee to transfer to n.i paid, then another fee to transfer it onto your car. Took about 30days in all from memory. Soon adds up on top of the price of the plate! This was about 2 years ago so might be changed now

    It's definitely a rip-off - back over here, NI plates are often cheaper than UK ones, for example, once considered buying 'BXI 905' for £195 to match a Citroen BX with the 1905cc engine - dad managed a Citroen service dealership back then.
