Customer Success - Hard earned success

Hard-earned Success

It’s interesting how some people’s lives go through markedly different phases - almost complete changes in direction - while others seem to know what they want pretty early, and consequently tread a pretty straight path from then on. David Curtis seems to be one of the latter.

David left school as soon as he could, in order to pursue a career in construction, which was pretty much a family tradition. As time went on, David took over the family business and Curtis and Sons is still going strong today.

Specialists in surfacing and civil engineering, the company was founded in 1963 and is based in Buckinghamshire and Cambridgeshire. Curtis and Sons tackles domestic and commercial jobs of all sizes, from a modest drop-kerb installation to extensive commercial drainage or surfacing projects. Since 2003, much of their work has been provided by local authority contracts.

“I hope that, one day, my sons will carry on the business, as I did,” David says.

Hard-earned success brings rewards and David, like many other business people, has a liking for nice cars and good private number plates. In fact, his enthusiasm for personal registrations, like his vocation in construction, has roots going back to his younger days.

I’ve always had a strong interest in cars and number plates, and I am very pleased to have purchased all my plates from Regtransfers,” says David. “I have owned E3 DAV since I was 18 years old. More recently I have bought 23 DC, my birthdate and initials, and my newest addition, 8#160;DC.”

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.
