    Ive got a personalised number on my car i bought from the dvla a couple of years ago, a few weeks ago i bought another reg number at a dvla auction.

    I want to hold my current number on retention and put my new number on my car.

    Do i have to put my current plate on retention, then apply for my new number to be put on my car or can i do all processes at the same time ?

    thanks

    Do you have a DVLA office local to you?

    You could get it all sorted there no probs.

    you need to put old reg on retention otherwise it will be lost forever :eek: Mine took 2/3 weeks to sort out. If the private plate is going on a car with normal car reg you can do it same day

    I recently got new car which involved changing 3 reg's. Nightmare! You can apply for transfer of reg number form online. Better than waiting for several hours at a DVLA office.
