Proudly paranoid about cyber security

Cyber crime tape

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...

Ridiculous luxury car extras

The most ridiculous luxury car extras

Ever bought a used car only to wonder, ‘What was the previous owner thinking’? Maybe it’s a discarded chocolate bar down one of the back seats, indelible lipstick stains or a questionable smell from the glove compartment.

The British motor industry

Visual of a bar chart

In the year 1950 the UK provided the world with 52% of global car exports, and truly dominated the international stage. British car firms have enjoyed countless successes, from the pocket rocket Mini Cooper, to the iconic all-terrain Land Rover, and the MI6-approved Aston Martin.

To quote Abraham Lincoln, the 16th US president: “To test a man’s character, give him power.” One can only assume he wasn’t referring to (horse)power in the automotive sense, but we like to think there's an analogy there.

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.
