The gift that can last a lifetime

Celebrate that important date with a personalised plate.

Regtransfers has a range of great date registrations. A number plate representing a birthday is a great gift choice. We find that many customers buy date plates for themselves, so it's a fair bet that a plate bearing your loved one's date of birth will be a welcome present. Date plates can also be less expensive than many name numbers, so they tend to fall within more people's budgets.

The number representing the date may be combined with letters to display the owner's initials. A fantastic way to personalise a car, and you can be sure that the recipient of such a gift will never again forget their registration number!

Don't forget, date plates can be meaningful in many other ways too. Wedding anniversaries, establishment of businesses, historical events: all of these and more can be represented on a vehicle number plate.

Our page on car registrations formats explains how to understand prefix, suffix and current-style number plate layouts.

Please note when number plates are purchased using finance, the original purchaser who completed the application will still be liable to make the monthly repayments due under the agreement even if it’s a gift or bought on behalf of someone else.

The role of DVLA

Car registrations and number plates, including personalised number plates, in the UK, are the responsibility of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, usually known as the DVLA. It issues new registrations twice a year and also maintains the central database that records details of all vehicles licensed to drive on UK roads, along with their keeper and registration information.

Regtransfers works closely with DVLA to complete registration transfers as quickly and efficiently as possible. Regtransfers is a DVLA-registered supplier of personal car registrations and number plates and is listed on the DVLA Registrations website. All number plates supplied by Regtransfers comply with DVLA's prescribed standards and regulations.

DVLA administers all UK registration transfers and issues updated registration documents when the registration number of a car is changed, or when a registration is removed from a vehicle and placed on a retention document in accordance with the DVLA Retention Scheme.

DVLA is a registered trade mark of the Driver & Vehicle Licensing Agency. Regtransfers is not affiliated with the DVLA or DVLA Personalised Registrations. Regtransfers is a recognised reseller of unissued Government stock.

Number plate regulations

When a car is on the road, it is an offence to display number plates bearing any number other than the vehicle's officially recorded registration number. If you purchase a private registration, learn how to transfer private plates before displaying the new number.

All registration number plates displayed on UK vehicles must comply with the official number plate regulations. DVLA oversees enforcement of number plates display regulations and maintains a register of approved manufacturers and retailers of vehicle number plates.
