How to assign a Personalized Number Plate

Assigning personalized number plate to a vehicle

To assign a personalized number plate to a vehicle you will need one of the following:

  • V750 (Certificate of Entitlement)
  • V778 (Retention document)
  • An online reference number provided by the DVLA

The way to obtain any one of the three documents is either when buying a number plate or taking the personalized plate off a vehicle you own.

How to assign a number plate to a vehicle you already own?

Assigning a number plate to a vehicle you already own is actually pretty simple. You can apply to do this online or by post, whichever is more convenient to you. There are some requirements though:

The vehicle must be:

  •  Available for inspection
  • Registered in the UK with the DVLA
  • Be a vehicle that requires an MOT or HGV (heavy goods vehicle) test

You will need to order a set of new plates and put them on the car before you start to drive it!
