Olympic long-jump gold medallist Greg Rutherford is currently in the rink for ITV’s Dancing on Ice.

Since we featured Olympic Long-jump gold-medallist Greg Rutherford in issue 34 of our magazine, The World of Personal Number Plates, he has added even more successes to his record.

A personalised registration is something I’ve considered so many times and never gone for. But I thought GBR 601D (GBR Gold) was absolutely fantastic for me, and I was really excited.

In 2015, Greg won the Birmingham Indoor Grand Prix with a jump of 8.17m and, in June of that year, he won the Diamond League events in Birmingham with a jump of 8.35m and in Oslo with a jump of 8.25m.

In August of that year, he completed his second-longest jump ever of 8.41m, winning gold at the World Championships, and won the long jump final in the IAAF Diamond League in Zurich.

2016 brought Greg further achievements: a new British indoor long jump record of 8.26m in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and a defence of his European Championship title with a jump of 8.25m. He also took the bronze medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics with a jump of 8.29m.

Greg’s athletics career has been on hold since an ankle injury in 2017, but he has appeared on top shows such as Channel 4’s Time Crashers, (2015), BBC TV’s Strictly Come Dancing (2016), Celebrity MasterChef - winning the 2019 season.

And now, in January 2024, Greg is appearing as a contestant on ITV’s Dancing on Ice, paired with professional skater Vanessa James.

We wish Greg every success with his latest venture.

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.
