The account area just became intuitive and simple

A Regtransfers account opens the door to many excellent benefits and features that are now even quicker to access and use. This was achieved by consolidating the different options we previously had available into 4 simple, easy to use services.

The four profile sections

  • Notifications
  • Order tracking
  • Auction activity
  • Valuations

Your notifications area

Whether you are in the middle of purchasing your next registration, or interested in bidding in our auction, your account is a central hub that will notify you when there is an action required from you. Here is what you currently can expect to see from the notification area as you use your account going forward.

  • If you need to add a credit card, or if it has expired.
  • If we need bank details from you to complete a transaction.
  • If we require a V5C document from you.
  • If we require a V778, V750 or your Power of Attorney document.
  • In rare instances if we need you to post any documents to us.

Order Tracking

We recognise it can be confusing navigating two different places to find order information. This is why we have combined sales & orders into one simple place to make managing your orders a piece of cake. If you are selling a plate with us, you will find it in the Current Sales list. If you are buying a registration with us, you will find it in the Current Purchases list. We’ve even made it possible to upload required documents to speed up the transaction process. You can learn more about those features further down.

Auction Activity

Selling and bidding is a simple process. We have reduced the amount of overbearing lists so you need only look at either Bidding or Your Listings. If you’re bidding on registrations, you’ll see the registrations you’ve won, and the registrations you’re watching. If you’re listing registrations for auction, you will first see what has finished, with options to Relist your registration or Offer second chance. This option is for the scenario in which you decide to sell to the second highest bidder.


Registrations you own may be worth more than you think. If you’re looking at selling your registration with us and curious as to how much it could sell for, we will provide you a quotation free of charge. We will do this for as many registrations you own, and these all can be managed via the Valuations section.

Purchasing a registration with us just got faster

Purchasing a registration from Regtransfers is a simple and straightforward process but we are making the transaction even quicker by introducing the ability to upload the following documents:

  • V5C
  • V750
  • V778
  • Power of Attorney

By sending us your documents online, you can save time on posting and our administration team can process your details faster. The notification area will even let you know when we require specific documents from you.

More updates to come

This is only the beginning of our efforts to make your customer journey with us an even greater experience. We will continue to update you as we make improvements and where you can find them.

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.
