SERVICES UNAVAILABLE
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with online accounts, live chat and phone lines.

We advise customers to revisit the website later today. Once services are running as expected, we expect phone lines to be busier than usual and therefore ask customers to use their online accounts where possible.   

Our teams are working to get this fixed as soon as possible. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience caused.

How do I put a private plate on my vehicle?

In most instances, you can. 

If you hold the V5 document for the vehicle you can go ahead and arrange this directly with DVLA. You must tell us your new registration number once your request has been completed.  

Please be aware that when you return the vehicle the plate will need to be removed in good time for the vehicle to be collected. Please note it can take up to 8 weeks so you’ll need to start the process early. 

If you do not hold the V5 document for your vehicle (this would be the case for a Contract Hire agreement), you will not be able to put a private plate on your financed vehicle.
