Private Reg - anyone got a spare £35M?

I had to re-read the price several times for it to sink in;

Who on earth…? (:racing_car:)
And as if the last £9,995 really matters :astonished:

Ah but it makes the price look more scientifically generated!

There is a 25% sale on - so it’s not too bad. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: R-

I’d get a private plate, but with me having a common name anything remotely good is expensive.

I have one - but it cost less than £500. R-

Don’t want to shock you, but you’re the first Kolok I’ve ever met.


I’ve got 2 private plates.

One I bought about 8 years ago for £250 was valued last year at £3,000.

The other I bought 2 years ago when I found out that the DVLA don’t just release new regs each year. They in fact release more variants of M reg plates and stuff periodically.

I used to work for a company buying and selling reg numbers

I still don’t get why people waste money on them


The same could be said of almost any purchase and after all it is our money to spend how we wish. R-

Mine hasn’t been wasted so far :crossed_fingers:

Do you transfer it when you get a new car or keep it on retention?

There’s rumours every few years that they’ll ban buying them but can’t see it as the government makes a fortune from them

Transfer. R-

I transfer but I believe it’s free to have a plate on retention now? Both my plates are in use, one on my car and the other on my motorbike.

I will probably never sell them but I too can’t see a sale ban happening, especially when there are so many resellers.

I believe the £80 charge is still in place to put a plate on retention, what got removed was the £25 annual charge to keep it there. R-

Ordered - will look great on my wheels



Ahhh yeah that’s it!

I’ve no problem with private plates, per se, but I do object to seeing illegally spaced numberplates as people try to make a numberplate fit their name. So irritating.


Playing silly buggers with screws and coloured screw covers when you can’t quite get the letter/number you wanted is the one that really gets my goat. No doubt illegal, but doesn’t seem to stop some people.

Also known as the Illuminati, so quite comon.

And it’s illegal. Contrary to section 59(1) of the Vehicle Excise and Registration Act 1994. … £100 fine and risk that DVLA will remove entitlement to the number.

I can confirm that, that too, is illegal. :+1:
