Interview with Willie Carson

Willie Carson

Breeder, broadcaster and former champion jockey Willie Carson will no longer have any problem recognising his Isuzu Trooper in a field of 4x4s now that he has added his own special personalised number plate to the vehicle.

Willie, who always stands out in a crowd thanks to his bubbly personality, turned to Regtransfers to customise his vehicle. Willie was looking for a particular plate he had seen in one of their adverts, which appear in the national newspapers every week.

"I telephoned Regtransfers about a plate I was after, but one of Regtransfers excellent sales people, Jim Stewart, found a far more appropriate plate for me." Jim Stewart said, "As a former 'number one' champion jockey, I thought an N1 plate would be in keeping with Willie's status." Coupled with his initials to make the plate, N1 WHC, it's no wonder Willie changed his mind!

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 to 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, you must complete the official transfer process 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.

Regtransfers is not part of, and is not formally affiliated with DVLA.
