Proudly paranoid about cyber security

JFIF File

We are not ashamed to admit to an obsession with online security. News and current affairs media deliver a constant stream of reports detailing attacks on individuals and organisations. These assaults on the world's data and services take many forms: hacks, viruses and malware, denial-of-service attacks, phishing... One of the few things these threats have in common is that they are largely preventable if sufficient expertise and resources are invested in robust and up-to-date security measures.

Regtransfers is proud to reassure our customers that cyber security is at the top of our list of priorities. Regtransfers is certified PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant. This means that we meet very stringent e-commerce and data security standards set by the major credit card companies. We partner with industry leaders such as Cylance and Thawte to ensure that our in-house networks and company website are protected against malicious activity or intrusion. Cylance has provided clients such as Regtransfers with indispensable protection against many headline-grabbing exploits, including the WannaCry (AKA Wannacrypt)/EternalBlue threat that attacked many health and other institutions around the world in May 2017.

See their website article here: Cylance vs Wannacry article. While many business wrung their hands in despair, we breathed a sigh of thanks for our effective in-house and outsourced cyber security measures.

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.
