WHAT IS A DVLA RETENTION CERTIFICATE?
A retention certificate (known as a V750 or a V778) is an official DVLA certificate that allows you to purchase and store a registration mark ready to use on a vehicle at a later date. When you purchase your new registration number from us on a retention certificate, you will usually have a 12 month period to assign the personalised registration to a vehicle.
If for whatever reason you do not wish to have it transferred to a vehicle within the 12 month period we can arrange to extend the certificate for you for a further 12, 24 or even 36 months. (The standard DVLA renewal charge of £25 will apply for each year that it is being extended by)
HOW DO I GET THE PERSONALISED NUMBER PLATE PUT ONTO RETENTION?
Putting a personalised number plate onto a retention certificate is something that we do, so you don’t need to worry about that side of things. Virtually all of the personalised number plates that we have for sale in our eBay shop are currently stored on retention certificates anyway. If there happens to be one for sale that you wish to purchase that isn’t currently on certificate we will arrange for it to be retained once we have processed your sale.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FUTURE WHEN I DECIDE THAT I WANT TO TRANSFER THE REGISTRATION TO A VEHICLE?
There are two ways in which you can have the personalised registration assigned (or transferred as some people would say) to a vehicle.
The most popular way of assigning your personalised registration to a vehicle from a retention certificate is what we call the ‘self transfer method’, this is especially popular with customers who live within easy reach of their local DVLA vehicle registration office. You simply take (or post) the documentation for your vehicle along with the retention certificate into your local DVLA office and they will assign (transfer) the registration number to your vehicle whilst you wait, giving you back new vehicle documents and a new tax disc on the day.
The other way of assigning a registration mark to a vehicle from a retention certificate is for you to send the required vehicle documentation to our ourselves and we will handle everything for you at no extra cost. Usually within 5 working days you will receive the new tax disc, new MOT certificate and the rest of the completion paperwork back through the post direct You are then able to display your new personalised registration number on the vehicle the day it arrives.
