Top Notch plates

Top Notch

Like many business owners, Scott Seldon of Steel Fix Construction SW Ltd finds a role for private number plates in both his personal and professional lives. “I first got interested in registration numbers in 2016, when I opened my construction company,” Scott tells us. “I was looking for suitable registrations to suit my company name and my trade. Since then I’ve accumulated a small collection of registrations.” Scott’s collection may not be the most extensive but the quality is top notch.

“What really makes the difference to me when I purchase a registration is that they are completely unique, so if you get an opportunity you’d better take it as you may never get another.”

As a proud Exeter native, Scott is particularly pleased with his EXE 73R number plates. “It was of obvious interest to me as I was born and bred in this wonderful city. I’ll be proud to display EXE 73R on my motorhome whenever I travel.”

Scott’s company, Steel Fix, works mostly with rebar, the steel reinforcing bars used in concrete construction projects and the company’s area of specialist expertise is displayed perfectly by Scott’s REB 4R plate. The other fine registrations he owns are THI7 RTY, which was a 30th birthday present, and BAI7 BOX (bait box), a great fishing-themed number that currently resides on his brother’s vehicle.

“Regtransfers have provided a first class service,” says Scott. “I really couldn’t fault it, which is rare, and that makes all the difference. I look forward to making my collection bigger and, hopefully, doing business with Regtransfers again.”

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.
