Top 555 Car dealership and top plates

Top 555 Dealership

Prestige car dealership Top 555 was founded a decade ago by Tommy Freimuth and his sons, Charles and Tim. Specialising in luxury and performance vehicles from Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari and more, the company is located in Oakham, Rutland. Between them, the men who run this family business have more than 80 years experience in the prestige car field.

Private number plates have always been important to Top 555. In fact, the company was named after a cherished registration that the family has owned for two generations.

Charles Freimuth, Top 555’s sales director, explained: “We have always had a love of number plates and have had TOP 555 in the family since 1956 when it was first issued and when it adorned the family Bentley. The ‘TOP’ part came from our grandfather’s fashion company, based in Bruton Place just off Berkeley Square, London. That business was called Toplet. The 555 were my grandfather’s lucky numbers.

  • You can build your own TOP number plate by using our plate builder. 

“When it came to naming our company, we believed that TOP 555 would be something easy to remember. As the number plate had already been in the family for 44 years it had great significance for us even before we started the business. We feel that TOP 555 is now synonymous with our position as the top UK prestige and performance car dealership.

“We enjoy number plates. They finish off luxury and performance cars nicely, and personalise them for the discerning customer. We continuously purchase registrations for our clients through Regtransfers.”

Top 555 also use when it comes to selling their numbers. Charles says, “We currently have FS 1 for sale at £125k, 5 EE at £47,500 , 7 EE at £47,500 and E 31 at £42,500. “

“Also, with up to 40 cars in our spacious 11,000 sq ft showrooms, we invite your readers to come and see the very best of Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mercedes AMG, Porsche, Range Rover, and sporty BMW and Audi’s before they consider buying a car anywhere else!”

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.
