Working at Regtransfers

Careers with Regtransfers

Who are we?

In 1982, a Vauxhall Motors engineering apprentice named Tony Brown (our MD) began to explore the possibility of starting a unique business of his own. He established Registration Transfers operating from home with one telephone and a card index filing system. From these humble beginnings, we have become the leader in the independent number plates market.

We were one of the first personal number plate dealers to recognise and exploit the benefits of an online presence. Our website provides the best, and most secure, user experience on all computers and mobile devices.

We have become a major source of information on the subject, publishing books and magazines, and advising newspapers and television, radio and film companies.

What do our colleagues say?

staff group 3

I love it! It sounds really strange but I think it’s great coming to work. It’s a very open, lively environment where everyone has a committed and professional attitude. I think I like it the most because it’s a focused yet relaxed office to work in.

staff group 4

It’s a beautiful building - a large Victorian house. It’s a very good place to work, the people are fantastic and the atmosphere is always lively and buzzing. I love the fact that I get to talk to different people every day and hear all manner of reasons as to why they are buying a registration.

staff group 5

It has a very friendly atmosphere and a good work ethic.

staff group 7

It’s the people who I speak to each day on the phone. You get to talk to everyone from all walks of life, so it keeps it really interesting. That’s what keeps me here.

What do our customers say?

Local Kettle Brothers (Jewellers) with the number plate CA11 LKB

Our personalised plate from Regtransfers has helped us develop our brand identity and has helped with our marketing and employee morale. We would encourage individuals and businesses to consider the value of personalised plates.

The customer service has always been five stars for me. That's why I'm always a returning customer and, in the future, there will be more purchases also.

Anthony Fisher with the number plate AF 160

I found Rio, your sales advisor, to be very helpful in the negotiations of the purchase of this number plate, and I am very happy with my new old Cornish registration number. Many thanks to all the team at Regtransfers.

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.

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