Word of warning.

When part exchanging your car or Motorhome with one, retain it yourself! 

Michelle and myself have matching cars, Mine an A4 Avant Black edition.

Michelle's an A3 red top cabriolet 

Both in white both with very similar personal plates,


A123 ABC and A123 DEC 

Mine the dealer lost when I purchased my car in June. 

World of DVLA pain trying to get it back!

Today's effort failed.

Very disappointed to say the least.

My father bought a car just before the last war, and transfered the number to the other cars that he subsequently owned. I have continued the tradition, and my son is desperate to take over when I pop my clogs.

It disguises the real age of a freshly polished motorhome!

Hate to be a kill joy, 

Those plates pictured are probably if not definitely fake. Dicko may ne real..

DVLA dont allow any plate on the road that can be made to look like thoss, theres a whole list on the internet somewhere. 

Best one I saw was years ago on my dentist's Jag, in fact I'm going look and see what its on now.

Given how easy it is to set up the transfer online I am not sure how this problem arose. I had a vehicle specific plate on my Audi A2 which I sold (AT02TWO) and on my Astra 888 many years ago had VXL888R. My wife has a plate bought as a present by her son and he has a plate which almost spells his surname. That plate was transferred between Monday and Thursday this week from his old to new car by the dealer, no hassle. I once saw B16 NOB on a Dodge Viper, presumably he didn’t.
