Logistics vehicles with private plates

How PRS use private number plates for branding

The headquarters of PRS Distribution Ltd, situated near both Heathrow Airport and a selection of key motorways, is ideally located for a transport, distribution and logistics company.

Like most businesses, PRS has its own take on branding, marketing and generally promoting their name and, like an increasing number of firms, one of the innovations they have adopted in style is the use of private number plates on their fleet vehicles.

A fabulous collection of number plates

Phil Coombs of the PRS team realised what a great collection they had acquired and suggested to his boss, Paul Sawdon, that they should contact Regtransfers and tell us about their enviable array of plates.

“We have 1 PRS, 2 PRS, 3 PRS and 4 PRS on our fleet of Volvo tractor units,” Phil told us, “and other vehicles display 8 PRS, 9 PRS, 10 PRS, 14 PRS, 15 PRS, 16 PRS and 17 PRS.” PRS also owns a number of HGV plates, including 1 HGV, plus a series of current-style PR51 (PRS 1) registrations: PR51 VAN, PR51 DAF, PR51 JCB and PR51 HGV, all of which are displayed on vehicles. And there are more that space doesn’t permit us to include!

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.
