Famous Plates and Faces

Chills on wheels: sinister screen vehicles

Halloween themed number plates

There's a day in the year that we really enjoy because it gives us an excuse to do daft things, and that day is nearly upon us once again. Yes, we love Halloween.

Secret agent's not-so-secret number plate

The iconic Aston Martin DB5

For some years, the Bond DB5 was known as 'the most famous car in the world' and it still holds a special place in the hearts of many a Bond fan. The new DB5 was the perfect car for the suave secret agent: stylish, fast and British. In the movies, Bond's Aston Martin was fitted with all the custom gimmicks a spy could want: machine guns, battering rams, bullet-proof rear screen, ejector seat and more.

Number plates used by the royal family


The royal family has a long tradition of driving the most luxurious cars. We explore the various number plates used by the royal family to register their vehicles.

Sir Stirling Moss's Iconic Mercedes


In 2007, the Regtransfers team had the good fortune to enjoy an interview with Sir Stirling for our magazine, The World of Personal Number Plates. Sir Stirling was, and remains, a legend of British motor racing.

A royal car of the people


The Ford Escort RS Turbo is something of a classic. That said, however, it is hardly a supercar and not a model one would expect to hear mentioned in the same breath as a Ferrari, Porsche or even a Jaguar.

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.
